Melanie Amaro is an 18-year old from Sunrise, Florida. She originally auditioned for The X Factor with Beyonce's "Listen" and then proceeded to wow Simon Cowell with a version of Michael Jackson's "Will You Be There."

Amaro enjoys singing gospel music - and we'll be hearing a lot more of it from her. Melanie has been crowned the first-ever champion of the U.S. X Factor!
