LeAnn Rimes says she was not drunk when she performed a duet with X Factor contestant Carly Rose Sonenclar last night. LeAnn claims any awkwardness was because “I was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song.”

Wait, I couldn’t hear that over the sound of my eyes rolling. Did she say she was helping her with the song or trying to steal the spotlight?

Larry Stein, LeAnn’s lawyer, added, “LeAnn was not performing the way she would normally perform because she was on stage with a young girl. There have been a lot of untrue things said by others and it feeds into this sort of thing.”

TMZ adds that “LeAnn made a plate of food backstage and spilled it everywhere. Stein told us he didn’t know anything about that, but LeAnn insists she was stone cold sober.”

I believe her. If she wasn’t sober, LeAnn would have taken the mic from Carly’s hand, shoved her to the ground and belted out the song without her like she wanted to do.
