In the last and final round of X Factor tonight at 8 p.m., Mamaroneck resident Carly Rose Sonenclar will perform a duet with LeAnn Rimes, as she competes against Tate Stevens/Little Big Town and Fifth Harmony/Demi Lovato, in a race to win a $5 million recording contract.
To show support for Carly, a viewing party for "Carly's Angels"— as her fans are known—will be held tonight at Archbishop Stepanic High School on 950 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the first 1,000 fans will be allowed in. X Factor will film the audience live at 7:30 p.m. to appear on the show.
Admission will be free and promoters ask that the community show their support by bringing "I Love Carly" posters, t-shirts, etc.
Donations and support have been provided by several Mamaroneck businesses such as ABC Cakes, Balloon World and Trotta's Pharmacy in Harrison. ABC Cakes has even created mini Carly Rose cupcakes in honor of the occasion.
After the performance, fans can vote as many times as they'd like by texting a four digit code that will appear on the screen, calling the toll-free number that appears or online; additional voting information can be accessed here.
Tomorrow night, fans will find out who won the final round of X Factor.
Stay tuned for Patch's coverage of tonight's event.
