Carolynne initially auditioned for the X Factor in the 2011 series of the show, where she managed to reach the judges houses stage of the competition, being mentored under Louis Walsh. However she was eliminated at this stage and didn't advance in the competition.

Series 9

Carolynne returned during the ninth series of the show in 2012, singing "Clown" as sung by Emeli Sande during her first audition, which allowed her to progress through to the Bootcamp stages of the series. During this stage she sung "Moves like Jagger" by Maroon 5 as part of a group, and advancing to the next day of Boot camp. For her second and solo Boot camp performance, she sung "Bless the Broken Road" by Carrie Underwood, managing to advance to the Judges Houses stage.

During the Judges Houses stages, she was mentored by Gary Barlow and sung "When You Say Nothing at All" by Alison Krauss and Union Station. After this performance she managed to gain a spot in the live shows. During the first live show of the series she sung "Starships" by Nicki Minaj for the Heroes Night theme and ended up in the bottom two, alongside Rylan, where she sung "There You'll Be" by Faith Hill, then becoming the first eliminated finalist due to the public vote, finishing in 13th place.
