Rachel Crow (born January 23, 1998) is from Mead, Colorado, and currently lives in Burbank, California. She performed "Mercy" by Duffy at her audition, "If I Were a Boy" by Beyoncé at bootcamp and her own rendition of "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys at judges' houses. On the December 8 results show, Crow landed in the bottom two for the first time with Marcus Canty, who had appeared in the bottom three in the two previous weeks. After the judges' votes were deadlocked, she was eliminated after she had fewer votes than Canty and finished in 5th place. Immediately after the results were revealed, Crow collapsed on stage and cried convulsively. She cried for her mother who went up on stage and tried to console her. Nicole Scherzinger, the judge responsible for sending the vote to deadlock, was also visibly upset by the result. When Steve Jones asked Scherzinger if she had anything to say, she turned away from Jones and was booed by the audience for inadvertently sending Crow home. She released a five-song EP on June 26, 2012.
