Melanie Amaro Crowned X Factor USA Winner
$5 million dollar check – a huge incentive for the thousands of hopefuls who auditioned for the show earlier this summer. Besting fan favorites Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik, the Floridian songbird’s cause was certainly assisted by her rousing renditions of Beyonce‘s “Listen” and R. Kelly‘s ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ (assisted by Kelly himself live) on last night’s finale.
While the world awaits her first official offerings, one thing’s for certain – the girl’s got chops. And, with media moguls Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid in her corner, Amaro looks to be winning in more ways than one! Congratulations are in order!
