On last week, Melanie Amaro was named the winner of X Factor and along with winning the reality talent show, Amaro won a $5 million dollar recording contract with Syco Music and Sony Music, as well as a Pepsi Super Bowl commercial.
So how does Melanie Amaro feel about initially getting eliminated in the final cut and then being brought back on X Factor?
“He [Simon Cowell] made a mistake, he apologized about it and I moved on from it,” stated Melanie Amaro.
Simon Cowell must have felt the pressure and so he went to Melanie Amaro’s house to invite her back two weeks after cutting her. Amaro did admit that she couldn’t stay mad at Cowell, furthermore, she did forgive him after being hurt at first.
When Melanie Amaro was questioned about if she would have done better by having another mentor such as L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger or Paula Abdul, she said, “No.” Melanie Amaro believes that she wouldn’t have gotten as far as she did if it wasn’t for Simon Cowell.
As for the future of Melanie Amaro, she is hoping to work with Mariah Carey and L.A. Reid.
