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.

Rachel Crow X Factor natural hair

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.

x factor Rachel Crow

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?

Ha! She does remind me of you now that I think about it...lol. Clearly you're both adorable :) And I LOVE X Factor! I didn't think I'd be watching because it seemed like another American Idol, but the format of the show and the contestants' stories drew me in...lol.

She is adorable, and I love her hair. I hope she goes far in the competition and inspires some other young girls.

Afrobella, that beautiful little child looks JUST like you!! And not just because of her hair. Both of your facial structures are very similar. Sister, I have the hardest time scrolling down when I'm on your blog. Is it just me and my computer, I wonder?

T-shirts hhave become a part of the teens' culture and they have become an important part of their wear. Although you may be thinking about her even when you are away, you should set aside time for sharing special moments with her. Although it's more for entertainment purposes, it iss still possible for a spirit to communicate in that way.

The game sounds like it could provide lots of mindless fun if you're into that sort of thing. This game is available as the only Days 2 Die and Days 2 Die: The Other Side. You will not get stress iin this game because you will definitely find a way to solve every given level.
