Carly Rose Sonenclar explains why she’s taking her time with her debut album – There’s a good reason why former ‘X Factor’ finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar hasn’t finished her first album yet. The Mamaroneck teen has been splitting her time between the recording studio and high school. “I’m still in school and I chose not to leave school, so it’s kind of like I’m taking my time with it,” she said in an interview with “Considering I’m still in school, I don’t have all the time in the world, so I do as much as I can on weekends and vacations. And sometimes I’ll take off from school to go to L.A. and stuff.” – Read more at LoHud

Smithfield’s Bria Kelly is seeing ‘The Voice’ in a different way now – On Monday and Tuesday night, for the first time this year, Bria Kelly was just like the rest of us. She was watching “The Voice” on NBC in her family’s living room. Up until last week, the 18-year-old singer from Smithfield had been right in the middle of the action — watching from backstage when she wasn’t actually on stage herself, constantly soaking in the energy of the live audience. She made it into the top 10 this season, but after getting eliminated by viewers’ votes last week, she is seeing the show like the rest of America sees it. – Read more at Daily Press

‘Survivor: Cagayan’: Jeff Probst breaks down the latest episode – It was definitely one of my favorite moments of this season. The truth is that we always endeavor to leave the community better than it was when we arrived. We are involved in lots of different types of support in every location. But when you can find a way to work it into the show it’s a win-win. It reminds the audience that the contestants do have a heart and they aren’t always cut throat and I don’t care who you are, seeing the faces of those kids – pretty beautiful. Woo was the star of the day! He really just took over and put on a show! – Read more at Entertainment Weekly
