Will Tampa Bay native Rachel Potter make the top 10 on ‘The X Factor’?
Seminole High graduate Rachel Potter, most recently seen in the bay area in a starring role in Freefall Theatre’s Spring Awakening, is one of 13 contestants left on Fox’s The X Factor and has a chance to make it into the top 10 this week.
Potter honed her acting chops playing Ariel and Belle at Disney World and has also starred in Broadway productions of Evita and The Addams Family, so she’s had success in the musical theater world. But she came to The X Factor seeking success in a different genre: country music. Potter, who now lives in Nashville, wants to be a country star, and at 29, feels like X Factor is one of her last chances to get her voice out there. Find out if she makes it into the top 10 this week; there will be one elimination on tonight’s episode and two on Thursday’s.
The X Factor airs Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
