Melanie Amaro Forces X Factor Viewers to "Listen"

by at . Comments

With apologies to Rachel Crow, Nick Voss and other impressive acts from week one of The X Factor, Melanie Amaro is it.

This 18-year old put gave us the audition of the (early) season last night, belting out Beyonce's "Listen," bringing Nicole Scherzinger to tears and prompting Simon Cowell to say: "When I was asked by people why I was bringing this show to America it was because I hoped we were going to find someone like you."

High praise, indeed. Does Melanie deserve it? You decide...


What an AMAZING voice......this girl will definitely be an inspiration to all other young girls and also make it to the top! God bless her....


HE double hockey sticks!!!!!!!!!!!! This girl is the truth. At 18 she sounds better than most singers with contracts. Wait until she gets vocal coaching. Watch out world Melanie Amaro has arrived..... Way to go Melanie!


This girl is IT. Hope she goes all the way. She has the voice, the soul, and a humble spirit. Simon got it right...we watch these kinds of shows to see people like Melanie.
