Carly Rose Sonenclar takes on Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” on “The X Factor”

On the Number Ones-themed Nov. 29th episode of "The X Factor," contestants performed tunes that reigned supreme at the top of the charts such as Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" and Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger."

Mini diva Carly Rose Sonenclar took on Adele's smash hit "Rolling In The Deep," which spent 65 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at No.1.

After her performance of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" last week, Sonenclar placed first on "The X Factor's" leaderboard and it seems like she's hungry to stay there.

"At this point, anybody can win this," the 13-year-old singer said. "It's very important not to get too comfortable in the number one spot."

She later added, "Every week the competition gets more and more intense so I have to give everything that I have so that I can stay in the top spot."

Even though she didn't get a standing ovation from the judges this week, they still seemed impressed with Sonenclar's interpretation of the song.

"For me, that wasn't your very best performance," judge L.A. Reid said. "But, even your second-best is better than everybody else's first-best."

"I thought the first half of the song was good," judge and show creator Simon Cowell critiqued. "I thought the second half of the song was sensational…I believe that outside of this show that you, as a 13-year-old, can sell records."

"Rolling In The Deep" appears on Adele's super successful 2011 album "21," which recently achieved the milestone of selling more than 10 million copies in less than two years since its release, becoming the 21st record to do so according to Nielsen SoundScan.
