Sure, Rachel Crow didn't win The X Factor last season, but she's breaking big right now!

It doesn't even matter she placed fifth in the reality show, because Rachel landed a talent deal with Nickelodeon that includes starring in her own musical-comedy series pilot. That's not all! Columbia Records signed her in partnership with her X Factor coach, Simon Cowell's company, Syco. OK! NEWS: RACHEL CROW GETS KICKED OFF X FACTOR Rachel told The Hollywood Reporter, "It's been amazing. A couple days after the elimination I just found myself sitting home asking myself, 'What am I going to do now?' And I never would've thought that this is what I was going to do now. So, it's pretty amazing. I'm very thankful and I feel very blessed to have all this." Sounds like there's no time like the present since the budding star is already on-set shooting a recurring role in Nickelodeon's new comedy series Fred: The Show. She'll appear in at least five episodes this spring, and then, later this year, she'll start working on her first album. OK! NEWS: MARCUS CANTY ALMOST QUITS THE X FACTOR AFTER FINDING OUT RACHEL CROW WAS ELIMINATED "Columbia was awesome for me," she explained. "This is the top, which is really cool. Beyoncé and Adele — and I'm in the same family as them, which is really awesome." Fans can expect her tunes to be "spunky," with some "high notes in there." The budding star added, "And it's just gonna be me." Congratulations, Rachel!
