LeAnn Rimes And Little Big Town Duet With X Factor Finalists

LeAnn Rimes and Little Big Town were among the music stars to join the contestants of the X Factor for performances on the season finale.

Rimes joined 13-year-old Carly Rose Sonenclar, who, speaking with MTV News before the performance, said she couldn't be more thrilled with the pairing:

"LeAnn Rimes is singing with me and I'm very excited about that. I think she is amazing and her voice is really, really special. I'm psyched."

Meanwhile, LBT was joined with Tate Stevens. Mentor L.A. Reid hyped the duet saying "It'll be a bonfire."

Sonenclar and Rimes teamed up for a rendition of the latter's hit, "How Do I Live," while LBT and Stevens performed the former's smash hit "Pontoon." The X Factor finale airs Thursday (December 20).
