Rachel Crow's emotional onstage breakdown after being eliminated from The X Factor is one of the show's most memorable moments of the season. But the 14-year-old former contestant now has a lot to celebrate after signing a TV deal with Nickelodeon and a recording contract with Columbia.
"It's been amazing," Crow tells The Hollywood Reporter about the new deals. "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."
According to the trade magazine, the Nickelodeon deal will give Rachel the starring role in her own musical comedy series pilot, as well as a recurring role on the network's new comedy series, Fred: The Show.
In addition, Rachel has been signed by Sony's Columbia Records in partnership with her X Factor coach Simon Cowell's company, Syco. She's expected to begin work on her first album later this year.
