Even though Rachel Crow was eliminated from "The X Factor" earlier than expected, most believed that it wouldn't be the last time we would see the pint-sized teen. And they were right. In the four months since that night, the 14-year-old has landed a recording contract with Columbia Records and an overall talent deal with Nickelodeon.
On Friday (April 6), Crow starts this next chapter in her career as she begins her guest starring role on the hit Nickelodeon series "Fred: The Show."
"I can't even tell you how much fun I'm having," Crow told MTV News on set last month. "It's gonna be cool looking and being like, 'Oh my gosh, I'm on TV again!' ... It's very exciting. I'm very happy with it. I'm having a great time; this is really fun. It's not work when you come here, it is work, but it's fun. It's something that you want to go to. It's really awesome."
Crow plays the role of Starr, a high school student who believes she is a talented actress and singer. Yet, to her classmates, she is seen as eccentric and somewhat awkward.
"My character Starr is theatrical, she is wacky," Crow said. "She's very out there and very over the top."
In her debut episode, "Class Election," which has a two-episode story arc, Starr tries to help Fred win a school election against his nemesis, Kevin, but when the election turns dirty, Starr decides to run against them both. During the episode, Crow shows off her sharp acting ability, but also reminds us what made us fall in love with her in the first place: her voice.
"I do [sing], "Crow said. "I do a little bit and I just sing like wacky stuff like two words or a couple words and some wacky school anthems, it's really fun."
Check out Crow on "Fred: The Show" on Friday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
