Dear Nicole Scherzinger: Chill.

Following a strong performance on The X Factor last night by Rachel Crow, this judge remarked: “You are America’s sunshine. Even though you’re only 13 years old, you have a classic recording voice. Kind of like Michael Jackson in the Jackson 5?”

Let’s maybe save the MJ comparisons until Crow at least reaches the top 10, okay?

Still, there’s no denying this young singer’s talent, along with the diversity she brings to the competition. Do you prefer a simple, a capella performance from Melanie Amaro? Or a fun, energetic cover of “Walking on Sunshine” by Rachel? These are the kinds of choices fans will have to make as the weeks progress.
