The first season of US version of the hit reality sing-off X Factor came to an end last night – as did the dreams of two of the three finalists who were up for the $5 million dollar recording contract.
Okay, that may be a little dramatic, but isn’t that what celebrity gossip is all about – the drama!?
19-year-old Melanie Amaro, beat out out runner-up Josh Krajcik and third place finisher Chris Rene and secured a spot on Simon Cowell’s Christmas card list for the rest of her life.
In addition to landing the coveted 5 million dollar recording contract with Sony music, the Miami-born singer also nabbed herself a spot in a Pepsi commercial that will air during Super Bowl XLVI – otherwise known as YouTube immortality.
So how does the girl who was technically eliminated from the show weeks ago plan to spend her cash? The singer joked with US Magazine about her plans to start enjoying the good life.
A good foot massage! These heels are killing me… I think I’m going to buy [my parents] a new house because the one we live in right now sucks… [The money] will change a lot that is for sure. I mean, the most I’ve ever had is like $200 in my account if I was lucky.
For me to have won was big. I feel blessed and I feel happy… I have worked so hard to get here and I truly deserve this.
