Rachel Crow dominates ‘The X Factor’ airtime

Who shined here?

As clever as “The X Factor” may be, there was one thing painfully obvious from watching the show on Wednesday night — it was pretty clear who the show wants you to think goes far over the coming weeks.

One person they especially highlighted was youngster Rachel Crow. Despite struggling here and there with some of her vocals while rehearsing, she absolutely nailed the group performance — and had judge Nicole Scherzinger on her feet while she was singing. She also had the attention of the editors, and had more airtime than just about any other contestant.

So could someone like Rachel end up winning the show? Definitely. She has the sort of story worthy of a winner, but it’s going to depend on how America votes. We’ve seen over time that they love sentimental stories, but this is also a talent competition — and we can’t discount someone else like Brian Bradley or Stacy Francis, either.
