After her impressive performance during ‘The X Factor’ live show, HollywoodLife.com caught up with the 13-year-old Rachel Crow backstage about her goals, dreams and favorite artists!
With her twinkling eyes and outgoing personality, Rachel Crow won us over from the second she bounded on stage during the premiere episode of The X Factor last month — and her flawless performance on the first live show last night had us just as impressed! After the show, HollywoodLife.com chatted with the driven 13-year-old singer, who dished about her mind-blowing experience and surprised us with her favorite artist!
HL: How do you feel it went tonight?
RC: I think it went amazing tonight. I’m feeling the love and everything.
HL: What will we be seeing that we may have not seen so far with your performances?
RC: I hope that I bring me. I hope that everyone likes me, and I hope everyone thinks that I am good. I hope I go all the way!
HL: Do you anticipate a certain person along with you in the finals, if you make it that far?
RC: I don’t! I’m just excited. I’m ready for this… If I do not go, I know whoever wins the competition will be amazing!
HL: Who are your inspirations, young or old that you look up too?
RC: My inspiration definitely is Eminem. I love him and I hope one day to sig with him or at least on day meet him. I love Adele, I loooooooove Adele, I think she is amazing! And definitely Beyonce… I love her. I feel like really good when I see her. I love her look. And I love Rihanna, I love her voice and she is amazing.
Rachel told People she’s been working hard to get herself in shape for the live performances and has dropped an impressive 15 pounds in two months.
“I decided to do it because I thought, ‘You are going to be on TV, you gotta clean up your act. You have to give it your all.’ I really went all out,” she said, adding she’s not planning on dropping any more weight because then she “wouldn’t be Rachel.”
Regardless of her looks, we are rooting for Rachel — she’s definitely got the X factor, don’t you think?
