Part of Melanie Amaro's grand prize package for winning 'X Factor' was a Pepsi commercial -- that airs during the Super Bowl. It's only the most watched TV event of the year, so in addition to a $5 million recording contract, Amaro will make an even bigger public debut courtesy of this commercial, which takes place in the King's Court. To top it all off, Elton John also appears in the spot. Amaro is certainly living a charmed life, isn't she? It's good to win 'X Factor.'
When we first met 'X Factor' winner Melanie Amaro, she seemed like a sweet Florida girl with a room-filler for a voice trying to forge a career in entertainment. One night, post-performance, Amaro chose to reveal her accent, something she had concealed until that point. Turns out, Mel is originally from the Virgin Islands, and her prominent accent was something that she was picked on for when young.
After the R&B star performed with Pitbull on the season finale, he spoke to reporters about Amaro's 'X Factor' win. Ne-Yo offered a word of warning to the singer, who will soon be swimming with the industry sharks, and we don't think Britney Spears will be too psyched when she finds out what Ne-Yo said.
'X Factor' winner Melanie Amaro was overcome with emotion on the finale that she could barely sing the lyrics to the song that put her on the map, Beyonce's 'Listen.' Now that she's gained her composure, she opened up about what she'll splurge on first with her sweet $5 million -- and the answer will surprise you!
If we could hear Melanie Amaro sing 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' like she did tonight, we'd never want the holiday season to end! She paid homage to Ms. Mariah Carey on tonight's 'X Factor' finale and we think Carey would have been proud of this diva-in-the-making! Nicole Scherzinger noticed it as well saying, "You are a princess goddess warrior." Run and tell that, Nicole!
Melanie Amaro was a bit overshadowed by R. Kelly during her first performance on tonight's episode of 'X Factor,' so she had to come out and performed a $5 million song flawlessly. She rebounded quite beautifully with a show-stopping rendition of Beyonce's 'Listen.' Amaro offered up a $10 million performance, for sure. She made us sit up and listen.
