LeAnn Rimes Knocks Down Rumors That She Was Drunk On X Factor & Did Brandi Glanville Tune In?

| Filed under: Music MinuteLeann RimesX FactorReal HousewivesReality TV

It seems LeAnn RimesX Factor duet last night with Carly Rose Sonenclar (above) has been one of the highlights from the show… and NOT in a good way!

We previously showed you LeAnn’s somewhat disastrous duet with the 13-year-old and we still can’t really understand just what went wrong!

While some reports believe the country crooner was drunk and off-balanced, LeAnn has been quick to fight back against the claims!

Rimes took to Twitter writing:

Guess she didn’t find anything wrong with it?! We just hope her shaky performance didn’t make viewers vote against Carly Rose!

As for Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian’s wife BEFORE he cheated on her with LeAnn??

Well, we figured she’d be off in Beverly Hills somewhere, laughing away at the performance, but that was just not the case!

It seems as though the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star had better things to do last night than watch LeAnn’s subpar performance!

When asked if she saw LeAnn’s duet, Brandi simply replied:

It makes sense that she’d much rather support her RHOBH co-star, Lisa Vanderpump, as she judged this year’s competition!

At least we can only hope that Carly Rose's other two performances of the night left a better, lasting impression!

    all losers

    Why on earth would anyone choose LeAnn Rimes for this duet? How about Carrie Underwood, Lea Michelle or Kelly Clarkson? Someone who's relevant, current and could actually help Carly win?

  4. 4

    I thought LeeAnn sounded just fine. The young girl….not so much. She was clearly struggling.

  5. 5

    LeAnn has an amazing voice. This was certainly not her best performance, but I liked it better than the girl group with Demi. I have no idea what went on behind the scenes in regard to how they rehearsed it and how it was supposed to sound - but I feel it is getting judged a lot harsher than it should because she is LeAnn. The worst part for me was hearing a little kid sing a love song - I find that just uncomfortable.

    Lee Ann sounded great. The little girl is good but does not have the appropriate pipes for that song. Don't blame Lee Ann, blame whoever picked that song for her.

    I think the only reason Carly struggled at all with the song was because she was trying to harmonize with LeAnn's crazy runs. I do think LeAnn has a good voice but she was all over the place. Maybe trying too hard to outsing Carly?

  8. 8

    Carly Rose is a talented little girl, but if you listen to what LeAnn sounded like when she was the same age - there is no comparison.

    oh my did she really blame that young contestant because she was a train wreck! She cannot sink any lower. She clearly looks and sounds intoxicated.

    LeAnn was obviously trying to steal the spotlight. it was actually kind of heartbreaking to see that girl so excited to sing with her, and then see her try to upstage her like that. It's not much that she wasn't in pitch, it was those wild vocal theatrics. I think if she's been a bit more demure and kind of handed it off to Carly more you'd be seeing a lot of positive things being written today about LeAnn. but she went in there and tried to steal the show, it didn't work, and now no one wins.

    what really got me is that LeAnn is a child star herself, so she should know EXACTLY how much this moment meant to Carly, but she was either too high, too drunk, or too indifferent to care.

  11. 11

    It shows how insecure Leann is. She couldn't even step aside and allow a 13 year old to shine. Pathetic.

    Leann Rimes did a great job. People nowadays constantly want to rip and bring down others due to their own insecurities and hatred. Wait a minute…. I thought Perez was on this "I no longer want to be cruel and mean towards others…..????" Frankly, just another stunt from someone who makes money from others' misfortune. Last time I saw a picture of him, he looked like he just escaped from the jungle with all that facial hair and way too skinny body….. Hmmmm, looks and sounds like to me he needs to do a little self-reflection….

    Re: SashaSkye – Exactly!

    Re: luckymom66 – 100% agree

    I think she sounds pretty good. I am not sure what all the fuss is about…

  16. 16

    She didn't seem drunk to me - just off-key and off her game. But that really wasn't a good song to pick for the little girl - on several levels. If you can't hit the high notes, which are the best parts of the song, then it's not the right choice.

  17. 17

    Leann has prob sung this song 5000 times and has to switch it up when performing to keep it fresh. She could have taken it back to the basics and sung the straight notes for this girl though, because it was just to tough for her to follow the runs.

  18. 18

    Riiiight you are, Brandi, riiight.

  19. 19

    TO BE FAIR, Carly was struggling with the song a full one minute before LeAnn came out.

  20. 20

    Kelly Clarkson was amazing on The Voice finale. Xfactor finale was not as good. At least LeAnn and Carly Rose sounded better than anything Ce Ce Frey has performed.

  21. 21

    Re: IzzyLizzy – So true. That first part when Carly was alone was not great.

  22. 22

    She's a mess…every aspect of her life has gone down the toilet, then backed-up and the shit has overflowed all over everything….EWW!

  23. 23

    I don't understand what's the deal? It was fine. LeAnn's voice is amazing, little Carly couldn't compare.

  24. 24

    Re: rosebud99 – and she missed the first line of the song, coming in late.

  25. a says – reply to this


    She didn't look drunk to me I just think it was a crap performance and not the right song for little Carly.

  26. 26

    holy crap! did you see leann rimes 'singing' on the xfactor?!?!:
    oh my. i am watching the very badly done x-factor tv show. leann rimes is singing with one of the contestants and it is…wow. she is definitely medicated in some way. a bit out of it. did not sing well, seemed uncomfortable. entered through a double door opening, seemed to lose footing a bit and then making a weird noise as the end of her first line sung. it was bizarre. both of them singing the same parts and sounding not good together. the 13 year old contestant having moments of trying to enjoy herself mixed with moments of a deer in headlights while witnessing the train wreck known as ms. rimes. the irony is not lost on this very old 13 year old. she is poised to have a nice career ahead and looking at fellow child singer now adult leann imploding on nat'l tv must make you think twice about how to proceed. you have to just watch it. and the ending when the 2 hosts come over to chat with them.

  27. 27

    continued: khloe k always seems rigid and uncomfortable and always asks inane questions like, 'i see you are emotional right now, i see you're tearing up, what's going on, how are you feeling right now?' i mean, really? after watching a package wherein a bunch of heartfelt townies commemorate a water tower to you and are all cheering for you! and you are emotional and she asks you that? this isn't an interview honey. calm down. and mario l is an automaton. he must be. i'd like to hide my spare change in his dimples. hahahahaaa! what a fked up world.

  28. 28

    why outsing the poor kid ur meant to be helping

  29. Kerri-xx says – reply to this


    Anyone who says Leanne Rimes sounds good in any way shape or form, clearly is tone deaf or basing their opinion on the fact the "like" her, and not her actual talent. Its a shame she butchered that song so badly, it sounded as though she was trying SO damn hard to outshine Carly.. clearly not something that will happen.
    shame on her. she should stick to wrecking marriages, not Carlys performances.

  30. 30

    It felt like they were trying to outdo each other

  31. A 53 Year old Grandma says – reply to this


    Perez and whoever else tears that performance apart is completely not in the know of music whatesoever!!! The only flaws with the ques being off from not practicing beforehand is all. Otherwise Leeanns voice is as always spot on, and this young woman is miraculous. Beautiful duet, beautiful voices, and Britney Spears should take some lessons from Leeann and learn how to sing for REAL and not have her voice fixed constantly by machines. Oh, and I am not a fan of Leeann with the whole husbands thing, but that girl has a voice that not many can even come close to.
    Maybe someday I will see and understand her motivations in the whole marriage breakup things and I will go back to buying her CDS. I sure hope so cause she was number 1 to me since she was a young squirt on the stage. GREAT JOB GIRLS and dont listen to anyone else@@ Just an ole Grandma is what is important. :)

  32. A 53 yr old Grandma says – reply to this


    Dang have to comment again. Carly sounded like she was born with the music and rhythm in her blood. How dare any of you back seat CD changers say anything negative about someone with her singing talents? She did a job that no 13 yr old other then Leeann Rimes has done. Again, I have not been a Leeann fan since the whole marriage thing, and maybe someday I will understand it, because I do absolultely love her voice and her music. There are not many who have that natural ability to just sing, and her voice is magic. They both did a spectacular job, and you go Carly@@!!!
    And btw, LEEANN did NOT LOOK or sound DRUNK AT ALL!!!! You make up story morons, geesh sorry not very mature for a grandma but I hate rhetoric crap.
