Probably wondering why…
Well, because at only 13 Carly has a powerful voice, musical technique and a unique tone.
Being extremely serious, she has worked hard for each edition, and, ironically, what Simon and Demi joked about, really seems to fit her:
“You’re an alien or something, but it’s okay because I love aliens,” Demi Lovato said.
“You are the best alien I’ve ever heard sing in my life,” Simon continued.
“I’ve got to tell you, I’ve heard that song a lot of times [and] that was one of the best versions of it I’ve ever heard. Seriously, amazing,” he added.
“You are an absolute force of nature,” judge L.A. Reid said.
Also, from our point of view, Carly’s judge Britney Spears was the best judge of the contest, always choosing what was best for Carly.
We simply love Carly’s interpretations of Justin Biber’s single “As long as you love me”, Adele’s song “Rolling in the Deep”, Academy Award winning ballad song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and others.
