EXCLUSIVE: ‘X-Factor’ Contestant Carly Rose Sonenclar Will Perform This Week with Strep Throat

In an interview on 95.5 PLJ’s “The Ralphie Show,” Carly Rose Sonenclar revealed that she will be performing this week on “The X-Factor,” despite coming down with strep throat.


“I hope not… I don’t know,” the 13 year-old responded when asked if she felt it might affect her performance. “It’s unfortunate but I can’t not do the show.”

The Westchester-native, who has consistently wowed all four judges, said her nerves are already up, as she has never had to perform in front of so many people while sick.

“I went to the doctor and I’m on antibiotics so I should be fine by then but I mean, I don’t know,” Sonenclar said. “I just hope I am.”

This week, contestants will choose songs based on giving thanks to someone that is important to them. The theme coincides with the results show, which airs Thanksgiving night on FOX.
