The second installment of the two night premiere of The X Factor USA aired on Fox on Thursday, Sept. 13, and there was one contestant who stood out most.

Carly Rose Sonenclar belted a song that blew the judges away so much she walked away with four "yes" votes and a standing ovation.

Sonenclar's voice earned her a standing ovation from all four judges which is the first time in Season 2 of the hit talent show.

Britney Spears was the first to give her praise.

"Miss thang, you are a little diva! You were unbelievable. You can see all of us are completely in love with you."

Music mogul L.A. Reid told Sonenclar that she "may be 13, but your soul is old."

Fellow judge Demi Lovato said if Sonenclar had music out now, she would buy the tween's music "right now."

Simon Cowell, the show's creator who is usually known for giving the harshest criticism, gave her the highest honor.

"That's not you singing," he told Sonenclar. "Somebody is behind you singing that song."

He went on to add, "A star has just walked out on that stage."

After Sonenclar earned the first three "yes" votes, Cowell said she earned "4,833″ "yes" answers from everyone in the audience.

"The X Factor USA" airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8/7c on FOX.
