Rachel Crow, the 14-year-old who infamously broke down when she was voted off of The X Factor, has bounced back from the trauma and now it's safe to say that she's winning (no pun intended). She scored a talent deal with Nickelodeon, which includes starring in her own musical comedy series pilot and she has been signed by Sony Music-owned Columbia Records in partnership with her X Factor coach Simon Cowell’s company, Syco.
“It’s been amazing,” Crow tells The Hollywood Reporter. “A couple days after the elimination I just found myself sitting home asking myself, ‘What am I going to do now?’ And I never would’ve thought that this is what I was going do now. So, it’s pretty amazing. I’m very thankful and I feel very blessed to have all this.”
Nickelodeon has also cast Crow in a recurring role on the network’s new comedy series, Fred: The Show, which stars Lucas Cruikshank. She is currently on-set playing the role of Starr, an eccentric girl who acts, sings and wants to be famous. She will appear in at least five episodes airing in the spring.
Let that be a lesson for everyone that if you want something bad enough, you will get it as long as you don't give up. Congrats Rachel!
