Melanie Amaro Covers "Man in the Mirror" on The X Factor

by at . Comments

Give Melanie Amaro credit: The X Factor front-runner is unafraid to tackle history's most iconic artist.

For the second time this season, the aspiring singer belted out a Michael Jackson cover, following last month's "Will You Be There?" with last night's "Man in the Mirror." How did she fare?

Simon Cowell found his protege to be "bloody fantastic," though L.A. Reid was a bit more pointed in his critique. He praised Melanie's voice, but referred to the song itself as not "that inventive." Watch the rendition now and then sound off: is Amaro still the favorite? Or is Rachel Crow making major progress?

I only watch X Factor because of Melanie, she is the great one and will be regardless of LA Reed and his deliberate negative comments. What happened LA, you could not get enough of her first audition! If you and Simon need to get it on leave Melanie out of the conflict. You LA seem to do all you can to destroy her confidence and Melanie does not deserve that! Get a grip LA!!!!

Rachel Crow cant sing compared to all the rest. She might be cute, but I sure hope that will not make her win.

L.A. says Melanie does the same thing every week and he doesn't like that? Well Astro has done the same thing week after week and that ok though right? duh....

Melanie Amaro is the best singer I have heard in a long time in these competitions. Rachel Crow is adorable and a good singer, has a lot of potential. If it comes down to these two I am going for Melanie #1 and Rachel Crow #2.

I think Melanie is amazing and look for her to be in the top 2. I think LA Reed needs to get a grip on reality and realize that Simons 2 girls (Melanie and Rachel) will blow his rappers out of the water.

I love both Melanie Amaro and Rachel Crow....I believe they are the 2 front runners, and the ones to beat in this competition....I really didn't care for the song choices last night.....with so many great movies and songs to choose from, i'm suprised they chose such ordinary songs except for Melanie,,,,,i thought she did a great song with Man in the Mirror....
