Last night was a shocker on X Factor as Rachel Crow, a major contender battled against Marcus Canty for a spot in the final four. The little dynamo sang a show-stopping "I'd Rather Go Blind" to thunderous applause and a standing ovation, proving she has the singing chops of a much more mature diva. The final vote resulted in a tie as judge Nicole Scherzinger refused to vote against Marcus Canty (who's been in the bottom two three times now) forcing the decision to lie in the hands of the voters the night before. Shockingly the young prodigy was bottom of the bunch. Rachel collapsed in tears and loud sobs as her mother came to the stage to comfort her. Nicole was booed by the audience and refused to comment on stage. Rumors of her battles with Simon Cowell have started circulating recently and last night she lost a lot of the audience support that may have saved her job. Only time will tell if she'll be a judge next season. Meanwhile, an amazing talent leaves the show.
