Rachel Crow, the young "X-Factor" contestant whose meme-worthy departure from the show may have inadvertently led to the eventual sacking of judge Nicole Scherzinger, has just had the last laugh.

The 14-year-old singer and Simon Cowell favorite has just signed a recording contract with Columbia Records, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which also relayed that Crow has inked a deal with Nickelodeon to star in her own musical-comedy pilot.

The singer tweeted the news to fans Wednesday: "Were u all excited to hear about Nickelodeon and Columbia records? Cause I sure was."

"She's funny, genuine, and has raw talent and a passion for performing," Nickelodeon exec Paula Kaplan told THR. "We're delighted to be home to her first acting project and think she is poised to join the ranks of our next generation of Nick stars."
