Rachel Crow was a victim of poor song choice tonight on the Michael Jackson edition of 'X Factor.' With all the great King of Pop songs to choose from, somehow Crow was given the Jacksons' marginal hit 'Can You Feel It' to sing.
Rachel Crow, who is only 13 years old, picked a song this week on 'X Factor' that truly depicted the amazing maturity of her voice. She took on legendary blues singer Etta James and her hit 'I'd Rather Go Blind,' wowing everyone in the building.
The 15-year-old rapping sensation known as Brian 'Astro' Bradley took on Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' and added his very own lyrics to the song, making for a memorable performance on the movie soundtrack edition of 'X Factor' tonight.
Marcus Canty, the R&B singer from Baltimore, Md., showed his impressive crooning skills tonight on 'X Factor' with a stunning version of 'I'm Going Down,' a Rose Royce tune from the soundtrack to the movie 'Car Wash.'
Marcus Canty, an R&B singer with a smooth voice and smooth moves, took on a song by a singer known for those same characteristics -- Bobby Brown. It wasn't a stretch for Canty, but he rocked 'Every Little Step' of the song like a true pro on tonight's 'X Factor.'
Drew Ryniewicz, the 14-year-old sensation from Chino Valley, Ariz., took a pop classic, 'Flashdance ... What a Feeling' and turned it into an haunting yet beautiful ballad on tonight's edition of 'X Factor.'
