I really don’t watch as much TV as I used to, and consequently I tend to be ever so slightly out of the pop culture loop. Especially when it comes to reality television. I have no idea what’s happening. But lately, every time X-Factor comes on TV, my timeline fills up with tweets.
“Look at little Afrobella!”
“Rachel Crow reminds me of one of my favorite bloggers”
“Sang, lil Afrobella!”
I had to check this out for myself.
The contestant folks have been telling me about is 13 year old Rachel Crow. I don’t think I look THAT much like her, but yes – I could see where she looks like a little cousin of mine or something! We both have natural hair, we’ve got a similar body type (I definitely looked very much like Rachel when I was 10 years old) and we both seem to have very smiley faces and sunny dispositions! But she can SING. I cannot. If I ever were to release an album, they could call it Songs in the key of T-Boz.
Not that I’m biased or anything but I think she’s adorable and I’m totally rooting for her now that my Twitter friends let me know that I should be watching X-Factor.
Rachel is cute, bubbly, rocks her natural hair with pride, and she’s getting lots of praise from the X-Factor judges — last night judge Nicole Scherzinger compared her to a young Michael Jackson.
And June Ambrose is helping to bring her inner style to fabulous fruition!
According to the polls I’ve read, Rachel is doing well but isn’t necessarily expected to win the X-Factor. Doesn’t matter. She’s super young and super talented. The exposure she’s getting on this show right now will take her SO far. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Rachel Crow!
Bellas, are you watching X-Factor? Who are you rooting for?
