The first winner of The X Factor U.S.A. was crowned, and I’m happy with the results. Stop reading now if you haven’t watched yet…
Melanie Amaro was crowed the first winner of the U.S. X Factor, and it was well deserved. Simon said, “We came to America to find a superstar and we found a superstar.”
What does she get for winning? A $5 million record contract spread over five years, a massive Super Bowl commercial, and I’m sure many other perks.
The best part about Melanie winning was the fact that she was initially let go and then brought back (all by accident per Simon). Simon said, “It couldn’t have been a better ending, the whole story, and the fact that everybody thinks it was something we put together for TV, me bringing her back. It wasn’t. It was a genuine mistake, and the irony is she actually won.”
Now for the important question…um, Melanie… Can I borrow Can I have some money?
