An insider tells HollywoodLife.com the 14-year-old ‘The X Factor’ starlet wanted to sign with Nickelodeon from the start and she only was in talks with Disney to solidify the deal faster
Rachel Crow impressed the whole country with her amazing vocals and outgoing personality on The X Factor and now she’s getting prepped to become a shining star on Nickelodeon. However, she has the Disney Channel in part to thank for getting her sweet deal so quickly.
“The Disney meeting with Rachel was almost seen as leverage for the Nickelodeon deal to do through,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Nickelodeon always wanted Rachel from the beginning, so when they heard she was talking to Disney, they sped up the process and offered her the best deal she’d seen up to that point.”
Adds the insider, “Disney was weighing its options and was in no rush to give Rachel a deal. Nickelodeon had more immediate plans than Disney, and Rachel wanted to strike while the iron was still hot.”
Rachel is set to appear in five episode’s of Nickelodeon’s new series Fred: The Show and is expected to work on her first CD later this year.
We’re so glad Rachel’s getting everything she deserves and can’t wait to see her on the small screen soon. Do YOU think she’s the perfect fit for Nickelodeon?
