'X Factor's' Rachel Crow lands TV, music deals

Simon Cowell was "convinced" that 14-year-old former "X Factor" contestant Rachel Crow would end up on TV after getting cut from the reality competition last year, and he was right.

Rachel Crow has not only landed a talent deal with Nickelodeon that will see her star in her own musical comedy pilot, but she's also snagged a recording contract with Columbia Records, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Finally able to share the news on Wednesday, the young star tweeted to her fans, "Were u all excited to hear about Nickelodeon and Columbia records? Cause I sure was."

She added, "I just want to say that u all inspire me so much to do my best. I never forget for 1 second that w/out all of u this would not be happening."

THR reports that Crow will also appear on the Nick comedy "Fred: The Show" in a recurring role.

Crow will portray Starr, a unique talent will dreams of becoming an entertainer, in at least five episodes this spring.

For Nickelodeon exec Paula Kaplan, the teen is an "original."

"She's funny, genuine, and has raw talent and a passion for performing," Kaplan tells THR. "We're delighted to be home to her first acting project and think she is poised to join the ranks of our next generation of Nick stars."

    I am really pleased for Rachel, as she is a very talented young teen, with such a bubbly personality. However, I do hope that she is able to cope with the intrusions that fame will bring to her life, as she is still very young emotionally.

    Shame on all of the people with the fat jokes, it is so pitiful that your lives or so empty that it pumps you up to take someone down. That girl can sing just like Adele can, if you dont like her music then dont listen to it!!

      Oh shut UP. She doesn't even come close to Adele! She isn't even a chunk of corn in Adele's poop!

      One, She can't sing. Two, If you are relating her to Adele then you are just crazy, because they are not even close to having the same amount of talent

    I knew little Rachel Crow was someone special when she belted out her first song and went on to say that "a girl needs her own bathroom!" God Bless You, Rachel and continue to be Y.O.U.

    I'm amazed at how judgmental some of these comments are. Why spend the 10 seconds of your life saying something nasty – about a child no less. She has a raw talent and with more coaching who knows where she will end up. I hope to hear her for a long time to come.

      She is just not old and bitter like yet like the people on here criticizing everything but her singing. She is a singer so critique that. It is unnecessary to comment on a child's looks or weight. Personally I think she is adorable and talented. As long as she is health and happy...who cares that she is not a size 00
