Rachel (13) made a shock exit last week from the Fox singing competition. Yesterday, during an appearance on Live! With Kelly, she was asked about her plans and hopes for the future.
“I want to wind up being huge, like Justin Bieber huge!” the teenager confidently responded.
Crow performed the Justin Bieber hit song Baby on one of The X Factor shows and made no secret of the fact that she is a fan. However, it was fellow eliminated contestant Drew Ryniewicz who received Tweets from the pop star after her elimination.
It had been recently rumored that Rachel Crow had already been approached to work with Disney following her X Factor exit. However, in her interview yesterday, Rachel denied that. She said she hadn’t heard anything from Disney.
In characteristically ebullient style, Crow discussed her X Factor exit after judge Nicole Scherzinger sent the results to deadlock when she struggled to decide whether Crow or Marcus Canty, the other contestant in the bottom two, should be eliminated.
She admitted that she ad been shocked to be sent home, but was even more surprised by the public reaction following her exit. She is still the one doing the consoling it seems, telling shocked fans she is okay.
Rachel Crow refused to predict and X Factor winner from the remaining contestants: Melanie Amaro, Josh Kracjik, Chris Rene and Marcus Canty who all went on to perform on the show’s semi-final last night and will discover tonight if they made it through to the final.
She spoke of Marcus Canty’s gracious reaction to being saved in the sing-off which saw her eliminated.
“Poor Marcus was very upset when he saw me go and I felt really bad because he should have been happy for himself – he made it and I was so proud of him and I love him, he’s amazing.”
The X Factor airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8/7c on Fox.
