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.
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.
