Carly Rose's Family

LeAnn Rimes Threw This

Little Girl Under the Bus!

12/21/2012 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Carly Rose Sonenclar's family is royally pissed off at LeAnn Rimes for -- as they put it -- trashing their daughter's "X Factor" performance Wednesday night.

Sources connected with the family tell us ... the 13-year-old girl's mother is livid that Rimes would dare say Carly Rose was "nervous and had trouble hitting the right notes" when she sang "How Do I Live."
As you know ... Carly Rose did a duet of the song with Rimes on the show. People on social media went crazy after the performance, claiming Rimes was drunk.

TMZ broke the story ... Rimes insists she was sober, but says if things were awkward, it was only because, "I was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song."  Rimes later claimed she never gave a quote, but we can tell you ... her rep specifically gave us the quote and told us we could use it.

Carly Rose's mother and other relatives are telling people they can't believe LeAnn threw their daughter under the bus, and that it was clear -- Carly Rose was a pro and even out-performed LeAnn at her own song.

I'm so glad Carly's parents didn't whole their tongue about what LeAnn did. She was horrible, and she did seem drunk. Its a shame Carly got stuck w/her. Carly's gonna go far though, the needn't worry.

The girl isn't as great as all the hype about her. The song belongs to Trisha Yearwood, who sings the heck out of it. It was always her song originally. Tate Stevens deserved to win no matter what else happened on the show. He's the better talent, not just a yeller. Obama? How'd he get into this? I doubt any voters were thinking of him when they voted for Tate Stevens over some little 13 yr old white girl. That's nonsense. And obama shouldn't even be paying attention to pop culture and tv. He already spends way too much time trying to be cool instead of protecting this nation.

Oh yeah, and how do you know that a vote for Tate Stevens wasn't meant as a vote for LA Reid? Certainly the only black judge on the show had the winner, but you interpret that as a slap against obama? Nutz.

The ***s at TMZ consistently hit new lows. Uneducated and illiterate (look at their grammar sometime) morons.

The mentors should be nothing but supportive of the contestants - no matter what. Throwing that little girl under the bus after-the-fact (and on a crucial judgment day for her), is just pitiful. The out singing and crazy runs during the performance - to this? It's just a series of bad showings from LeAnn.

If LeAnn was right in what she said I wouldn't care. But LeAnn is lying. Carly was singing is right. LeAnn's timing during the song was way off and she was throwing Carly off. Not the other way around.

That was awesome...a drunk skeleton with a horrible voice trying to suck the life out of Carly Rose Sonenclar on stage. Perfect for the Halloween season! Oh wait it's Christmas time.

Of course ppl have to blame someone because this girl didn't win, and Leann is a very easy target, the bottom line is - it's the VOTERS who decide who wins these competitions!!!!

And for the record, I'm not a fan of Leann OR XFactor!

Honestly? I thought right from the get go that this was gonna be a major FAIL for LeAnn Rimes. I mean. you'd think she was getting ready to CLIMB Everest in those horrid boots she wore. Her hair was in rags and she looked awful. And I thought that when she 'sang' and had her mouth open, that it was wide enough to sail a Cruise Liner down her throat. Awful! Just awful!
Yet, Carly Rose was CLASSIC in her singing. She never missed hitting those high notes.
I don't think Carly would have won, on her own merit, as TATE STEVENS was off the charts, so she would never have won anyways.
I think BRANDI GLANVILLE will be absolutely delighted with LaAnn's epic FAIL;!!!
