There were 6 of them under the teens category where Britney Spears was joined by Will.I.Am in selecting the top 4 to go through the live shows under Britney’s team.
Carly Rose sang Karmin’s song Broken Hearted. She delivered in with full of emotions and you can feel that it’s coming from the heart! As she finishes, Will and Britney was both left in awe considering that at a young age, her vocal techniques were exceptional making it through the live shows.
