LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rachel Crow was a tearful runner-up on “The X Factor,” but she’s a winner now.

The 14-year-old singer has signed a series deal with the Nickelodeon channel and a recording contract with Sony’s Columbia Records-Syco.

Nickelodeon said Wednesday its agreement with Crow includes development of a comedy series for the teenager. She’ll also have a recurring role in Nickelodeon’s new program, “Fred: The Show.”

Crow’s recording deal puts her in business with “X Factor” creator Simon Cowell’s Syco enterprise.

The big-voiced teenager made a dramatic exit from “X Factor” last December: Crow collapsed onstage after she was voted off by viewers.
