(Los Angeles) Country singer Tate Stevens won the second season of “The X Factor” on Thursday night during the finale televised live on Fox television.

Pop singer Carly Rose Sonenclar came in second place.

As part of the grand prize, Stevens wins $5 million, a record deal with Sony Music and a Pepsi-sponsored music video that will premiere during the 2013 Grammy Awards.

According to announcement made on the show, 35 million votes were cast in the final tally on December 19, 2012.

Sonenclar, 13, and Stevens, 37, were consistently the top two vote getters of “The X Factor” U.S. Season 2 in 2012. However, Stevens had been No. 1 in three of the five weeks that the show had announced the contestants’ vote rankings.

    I’m happy for Tate Stevens who I knew would win my favorite primetime show The X Factor. I love watching The X Factor and other primetime shows when I’m home. Things have never been easy trying to get all my shows recorded on the daily. I get all my favorite primetime shows recorded every night using PrimeTime Anytime feature in my DISH Hopper, which records all four major networks nightly. I don’t have to worry about using all the DVRs at home and tying up all the TV’s at once for my shows. I get them recorded on one TV and the kids can still watch what they want and everyone’s happy. I didn’t know about this sweet feature until my coworker at DISH told me about it. No more timer conflicts or multiple DVRs, which created one big mess.
