Rachel Crow's performance on X Factor last night is all the proof you need that the show made the right choice in using the expanded age for contestants. She was awesome ! LA Reid said he wasn't sure she had a shot at the prize, but now he thinks she might and I couldn't agree more!

X Factor has an amazing ability to tell the story of  these contestants  and turn it into much more than just a singing competition. Rachel is one of many singers on the show that make it fun for everybody in the family to watch. Keep it up X Factor! I wonder if Idol is looking over their shoulder just a little!
