Former X Factor contestant Rachel Crow was all smiles as she walked the red carpet at the CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute held on December 11, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. Dressed in a tutu-inspired outfit, the young starlet seemed in much better spirits than she did last Thursday.
Last week, the 13-year-old singer left the X Factor USA audience in shock after her dramatic departure from the show. After it was announced that she would be eliminated from the competition, Rachel fell onstage and cried uncontrollably. Crow explained her reaction in a recent interview with E!. Rachel explains, “I wasn’t shocked. I’m 13. I’m not preparing myself for this kind of stuff. So when it happened, I was like a scared reaction, almost like a look of terror. Then I just kind of fell because I was like, I can’t breathe.”
The pint-size star is rumored to be meeting with Disney executives soon to talk about a possible future career with the company. Are you excited to see Rachel follow in the footsteps of Miley Cyrus, Raven Simone and the like?
