Melanie Amaro Signs Record Deal

by at . Comments

The future starts now for Melanie Amaro.

Fresh off an X Factor victory that netted her $5 million and a spot in a Pepsi commercial during next month's Super Bowl, the talented artist has officially signed a deal with Epic Records.

"I joined The X Factor to be able to discover undeniable talent such as Melanie," judge L.A. Reid said in a statement. "I am pleased that she is now signed to Epic Records because I believe we have only scratched the surface on uncovering her talent and her inevitable journey to super-stardom."

Elsewhere, all indications are that three of Melanie's main competitors from season one - Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene and Astro - will also sign record deals in the near future. Best of luck to each one!

So glad Melanie won the X Factor!!!! I am so proud of her and she really deserved it. When I first heard her audition, she took my breath away, literally. #lovingtheamaro


I recall when we first watched the original audition of by Melanie in Miami on day 1 of the Xfactor and the discouraged reactions of the Xfactor judges who had struggled with a bunch of no talents before Melanie showed up and thought...GAME OVER!! She sounded every bit as polished as Maria Carey and others on day one! I still believe Simon's not selecting her initially for the finals was all staged. Not sure where she got her training, but GodSpeed to her and her career...she is absolutely wonderful.
