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?
