This has to happen!

If X Factor hopeful Carly Rose Sonenclar makes it through to the finals this week, she would love to duet with her mentor Britney Spears.

"It would have to be 'Toxic,'" she told Life & Style after we asked her what song she'd like to do if the pair performed together. "I think that song would be great to do acoustic because the melody is really great."

And while Britney is proud of the 13-year-old aspiring singer, Carly feels the exact same way about Britney.

"Every time I watch her video now or see her on stage, I am so proud," the adorable teen tells Life & Style. "I am very proud of her and I have gotten very close to her, so when they debuted her video ['Scream & Shout'] I was beaming. I know that's probably stupid, but I was."

After last week's rave reviews of her performances of Justin Bieber's "As Long As You Love Me" and Beyoncé's "If I Were A Boy" that landed in her in the semi-finals, she can barely contain her excitement — even though she came in second place following L.A. Reid hopeful Tate Stevens. She'll face off against Tate and Simon Cowell's groups Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony for a spot in the finals tomorrow.

"I'm very excited," she shares, adding, "I'm happy about being second place and being in the final four alone is amazing.

But it's losing good pal and contestant Diamond White, who had to say goodbye last week, that really struck home. "I'm actually kind of sad to be here without Diamond because we have gone to so many of these things together, arm-in-arm. It's like losing a buddy. That was hard."

As for judge Britney, she's happy to have Carly in the finals.

"Like Simon [Cowell] said the other night, she just has this demeanor about her that she just really gets it," Britney tells Life & Style. She understands the business and that's what you also need on top of being talented."
