‘The X Factor’ USA notes: Carly Rose Sonenclar, Tate Stevens, Demi Lovato, Josh Krajcik

Carly Rose SonenclairWe have quite a bit to get to in this new edition of “The X Factor” notes, but we’ll start things off with the latest news regarding Carly Rose Sonenclar and some original music.

Does Carly already have some musicial influences in mind for when she does get a chance to record a full album? It certainly seems that way. Speaking on this very subject as a part of a new interview with USA Today, here is what Sonenclar had to say about some of the people that she is interested in working with moving forward:

“When I get asked this question, I usually say the five artists I look up to the most, and that’s Bruno Mars, Adele, Maroon 5, Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran. If I could put all of them together, that would be the album.”

It is true that she is working on a song with producer Toby Gad, but the details of that are still relatively unclear save for that she was in the studio with him earlier this year. The most recent information that we have comes from CarlyRoseOnline.net, who cites another producer working with Carly in saying that there will be some dubstep incorporated into the mix.

Demi LovatoNew videos – Now, let’s turn to a trio of new videos featuring everyone from current contestants to past ones to even a show’s current judge in Demi Lovato. The image to the left is the cover of Demi’s upcoming self-titled release, which includes the new single “Heart Attack.” She gave her first-ever performance of the song on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last night, and it was a pretty good time. Also, we have a feeling that people really underestimate how hard it is to hit some of the notes that Demi does during an uptempo track.

In turning to Tate Stevens, the country champ’s new video for “Power of a Love Song” is also now officially available. We’re getting some bizarre international restriction on the video right now (which is strange), which is keeping us from embedding it. However, you can check it out here. If you love country ballads and are already a Tate fan, you’re probably going to love it.

On a different note, how about some love for one of our favorite contestants from season 1 in Josh Krajcik? His debut album “Blindly, Lonely, Lovely” is now available, so be sure to buy a copy! You can also listen to an acoustic performance of “Close Your Eyes” below.
