‘The X Factor’ USA notes: Carly Rose Sonenclar, Fifth Harmony, Nicole Scherzinger

Carly Rose SonenclairDo you want an opportunity to catch Carly Rose Sonenclar live … while still from the comfort of your living room? For the first time since “The X Factor” USA ended last month, we are going to get that opportunity courtesy of a new show that she is doing on StageIt at the start of next month.

Carly announced on her Twitter this week that at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time on February 1, she and her brother Russ (who you may remember briefly from some of the rehearsal packages from the show) are going to be on hand to debut her latest cover video. Not only that, but they will also be answering questions live from fans, and the top five tippers for the show will receive Twitter shoutouts as well as an autographed photo. A portion of the proceeds from the show will be going to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

We’ve seen a number of StageIt shows over the past year with some “American Idol” singers, and it’s always a fun experience; combine this history with Carly’s talent, and it’s definitely worth checking out. Be sure to click here to get your ticket.

The Fifth Harmony battle continues – Remember how we told you that Fifth Harmony was going to face some serious competition from Adam Lambert in the new PopDust poll for Reality TV’s Greatest Music Star of All Time? Well, they’ve made it to the final round of the contest … and they are now in the thick of a showdown with Adam.

Be sure to click on the link above if you want to vote, and the ladies have been campaigning for this hard over the past several days. While there is no real tangible prize here for the winner, it is a testament to the size of their fanbase. Plus, it keeps them engaged with their audience while the wait continues for new music.

Nicole Scherzinger news – While Nicole was not particularly well-received on the American show in 2011, both we and the entire British public loved her overseas last fall. So will she come back? Maybe, but the problem is that this conversation has yet to happen. Here is what the Pussycat Doll had to say on the subject in an interview with Kiss FM:

“I don’t know [if I’ll be back]. We haven’t had the conversation yet – they’ve got to ask me … I had the best time. It was one of the best years I’ve ever had. I didn’t know how much I’d fall in love with being here and the people – it’s awesome.”
