Rachel Crow’s elimination from the first season of the U.S. version of The X Factor proved to be one of, if not the biggest moments of the season, due in part to the 14-year-old’s devastated reaction to being eliminated. At the time, it seemed like the end, but her career was just getting started.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Crow has secured a talent deal with Nickelodeon, which will give her a starring role in a musical comedy series pilot for the kid-focused network. Between that and the recording contract she’s signed with Sony Music’s Columbia Records, the future is already looking bright for the young musician.
While she has music and a possible TV show in the works, the Reporter says Crow is also set up with a recurring role in a new comedy series called Fred: The Show, which stars Lucas Cruikshank. Crow is set to play the part of Starr, “an eccentric girl who acts and sings and, as her name indicates, wants to be famous.” Fans can expect to see her in at least five episodes, which will air this spring.
Crow’s elimination from The X Factor was the result of the judges being divided between Crow and Marcus Canty, the bottom two vote-getters for that week. X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger initially refused to choose between Crow and Canty, and then inevitably went with eliminating Crow, which forced the vote to a tie and resulted in America’s vote determining who went home. Crow was then eliminated, leading to a very emotional breakdown on stage, as well as an especially emotional reaction by Scherzinger. Scherzinger will not be returning to judge for Season 2, and while Crow's elimination may not be directly related to that, it did seem to shine a light on Scherzinger as a judge, and drew some criticism from fans..
Fans of Crow will likely be happy to hear word that things appear to be moving forward for her.
