Rachel Crow’s stint on The X Factor may have ended with a dramatic elimination rather than victory, but the teen certainly has something to celebrate.

Crow, 14, has landed deals to star in her own Nickelodeon series and record an album with Columbia Records, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Nickelodeon show will be a musical comedy series, and Crow will also have a recurring role on a handful of episodes of the network’s comedy series Fred: The Show, according to reports.

Crow will also record for Columbia Records in partnership with Syco, the company owned by her X Factor mentor Simon Cowell.

“It’s been amazing,” Crow told THR. “A couple days after the elimination I just found myself sitting home asking myself, ‘What am I going to do now?’ And I never would’ve thought that this is what I was going do now. So, it’s pretty amazing. I’m very thankful and I feel very blessed to have all this.”
