Rachel Crow originally collapsed in tears in the X Factor stage after she failed to love forward into the top 4. But she was not the only one crying. Apparently, according to X Factor insiders, Nicole was sobbing hysterically in her dressing room for nearly a half-hour.
Nicole was put in the unenviable position of casting the final vote between Crow and Marcus Canty. However, as the clearly judge did not want to eliminate either, she sent the vote to Deadlock. But not before 13-year-old Rachel begged her,
“Don’t cry. Please don’t cry…”
So, the decision went to the audience vote. Rachel Crow lost having gained the lowest number of votes. When the host of the show asked Nicole to comment on Rachel’s elimination, the crowd unleashed a chorus of boos.
But when teen singer Rachel heard how upset Nicole was she went to the judge’s dressing room. The two cried together and Crow told Nicole she was not mad about the decision.
Nicole Scherzinger is having a bad couple of weeks on the X Factor. She already received hate mail and even death threats after voting Drew Ryniewicz off the show last week. She probably thought she was avoiding the same situation again by forcing a deadlock.
But instead, teenager Rachel Crow was not only eliminated but was left with having to comfort the judge.
