Rachel Crow: 13-Year-Old Eliminated On 'X Factor', Breaks Down On Stage

It was an even more drama-filled night than usual on Thursdsay's X Factor elimination. After a stellar performance of Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind" on X Factor last night, 13-year-old crowd favorite Rachel Crow was sent home in a shocking elimination. When it came down to the wire with just Rachel and Marcus Canty remaining, the judges' decision was split. So the decision went to America, and voters chose Marcus.

Rachel collapsed on the stage in tears, and mentor Simon Cowell rushed over to console her. After she had recovered, Rachel told host Steve Jones, "I hope this is not my ending, you know what, I know it's not."

And this isn't the first time a young X Factor favorite was booted in surprising elimination: 15-year-old Drew Ryniewicz was devastated when she was sent home earlier this month.

Check out this video to see what went down.
