Crow auditioned for season 1 of the US The X Factor in Los Angeles, California, in front of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Cheryl Cole, and L.A. Reid. She was the 1st person auditioning in front of the judges. She sang "Mercy" by Duffy and she made it all the way to the live shows. She made it to the top 5, but after the judges' votes were deadlocked, Crow was eliminated by the public. Immediately after the results were revealed, Crow collapsed onstage and cried inconsolably.
