Got Something to Add?
i hear beyonce at the beginning and jennifer hudson at the end. wow!!! amazing gift... front runner for sure...
Meh .. not even close to Charice's version .. sounds like a wannabe, her voice still cracks at some parts. The X-Factor is an X on my list. Nobody was really that great or worth paying 5M.
BEST PERFORMANCE EVER -- BETTER THAN ALL AMERICAN IDOLS COMBINED!! I'll certainly be following Melanie Amaro. I can see her winning it all!!
Now, that's what I'm talking about! Last night was far better than the first. Melanie alone made the 4 hour watch worth it. That's some serious singin'!
She was pretty incredible. Lots of control. No caterwauling or over-singing. Ended powerfully. Definitely the front-runner by a mile so far.
There is no question that Charice Pempengco is an amazing talent, but she is a "pro" and she was a "pro" when she sang Listen at the Oscars in 2009. Melanie at this point is an amateur ... an extremely talented one based on this performance. If you can't see that, it only indicates your lack of knowledge, judgment and maturity. Obviously you are a big fan of Charice (and that's fine), but compared to Beyonce she's a wannabe! Get my point?
