'The X Factor' Premiere: Simon Cowell Won Over by Young Rachel Crow’s Song, Emotional Backstory (Video)
"My family has like no money," she says. "We live in a two-bedroom house, and I have six people in my family."
The X Factor producers started off the singing competition's premiere with a wallop Wednesday night.
Fox's series kicked off with 13-year-old Rachel Crow as the first auditioner. Judge Simon Cowell asked her what she would do with the $5 million prize.
"My family has like no money," she replied. "We live in a two-bedroom house, and I have six people in my family." She then quips: "I'm a girl. I need my own bathroom."
She blew the judges -- and the audience -- away not only with her personality but also her rendition of Duffy's "Mercy."
"What you just did is exactly what we need people to do on this stage," judge Paula Abdul told her.
Added Cowell: "Get ready for a new bathroom: It's four yeses."
