Carly Rose's Family

LeAnn Rimes Threw This

Little Girl Under the Bus!

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.

Doesn't matter Carly is 13 years old, She'll have an album out by 2014 and it will kill Tate's.... Leann on the other sounded like **** and looked like a coked out street walker

LeAnn was singing in such a bizarre half-off key way that it made it impossible for the little girl to sing along with her. LeAnn was too busy trying to be the "star" of the performance and forgot that it was supposed to be a duet. The girl was singing the original version of the song and LeAnn was singing her own improvised version. Together, they sounded like sh_t. I blame LeAnn.

Sounds as though LeAnn's spiritual advisor is Kesha.

Get over it. When the contestant says "Please welcome Leann Rimes", this means it is Leann's turn and Carly is supposed to be the background singer. This is what happened with the 5H/Demi duet, when 5H introduced Demi, 5H mainly stayed as background singers. When Tate introduced the country group in the duet, Tate stayed as the background singer. Being that Carly is competitive, Carly thinks it has to be her song. You can tell in the beginning of the song when she sang and the background singers started singing loud, Carly seemed annoyed. Plus, if the star is singing with the contestant, it is good etiquette that the contestant follows the lead of the star not the other way around. Meaning it is good etiquette not to try to compete with a star during a duet. if the star wants to be the lead singer, let it be and stay in the background. I have seen this happen in all the karaoke shows when the show invites a star to duet with a contestant. The mature contestant knows the etiquette that if the star wants to lead, let it be, it is not the contestant's place to compete with the guest star.

I don't watch the show, but in that clip with drunken Rimes, that Carly girl CLEARLY out-performed her. I wish for nothing but the best for Carly and her future - I'm sure she's going to be just fine.

Yeah she sure did but it may very well turn out in the kid's favor because she sucked it up, got her stage presence together, and continued on like a pro.

Get over it! Your daughter didn't win. Tate was always going to win. Those country fans are serious. I can't believe her family is trying to put the blame on someone else.
