Rachel Crow broke America's heart when she collapsed in tears after her X Factor elimination. But the 13-year-old tells Star she's determined to jump-start her career — by dropping weight!
Seven days a week, Rachel sweats it out with celeb trainer Eric Fleishman in an effort to perfect her pop star look.
"Eric slims people down really fast," Rachel gushed to Star on the People's Choice Awards red carpet. "I do a lot of cardio and a yoga workout."
With her mom by her side, Rachel beamed with pride over her 15-lb. weight loss and shared her hopes of signing both a record and acting deal with the help of X Factor mentor Simon Cowell. "Simon and I are tag teaming right now to see what I can do," she said. "We'll see how things go!"
