Melanie Amaro – Listen – The X Factor Finals
Melanie Amaro sang ‘Listen’ on The X Factor Finals
This was better than her audition, but was it better than American Idol’s Syesha Mercado?
Watch the video and listen to the MP3 here:
LA Reid: That is the Melanie that I love. That was a $50 million performance.
Nicole Scherzinger: You empowered me.
Paula Abdul: You delivered a stellar performance.
Simon Cowell: I am so proud of what you just did there. To me, you should be the winner of The X Factor.

Got Something to Add?
She has a good voice, but Syesha is much much better. I honestly don't think X-Factor is all that. Still like AI even though I have to tolerate the horrible judges on the show.
Amazing Melanie is the clear winner. I remember when Adam Lambert should have taken the win on American Idol. It makes me think maybe the voters don't know what true talent is? I am from a small country and the talk is Adam Lambert and no recognition of Chris..... If you happen to hear his name it is not a deserved win. Hopefully the mistake is not repeated as Melanie name is everywhere here. True talent is wanting to hear an amazing voice we need Divas. Go Melanie if you don't win your a winner anyway.
"Listen" is in my top 3 songs of all time, like it'll be right up with whatever my wedding song will be and quite frankly, this performance was really weak. Even Charice, who couldn't put in half the high notes, had more passion on availability. I felt like Melanie was trying to stay on cue the wholetime and avoid faltering on a word. Very disappointed. She should have picked something else.
Those who speak negatively about others are only trying to feel better about themselves. The time has come for giving yourselves a break by finding something positive to share with the world more often than not. Because doing so, will eventually remedy whatever ails you in return. Melanie Amaro has been given a phenomenal gift. Simon was right, she deserves this. Yet, there can only be one winner, which remains to be seen. Each one of these performers should be commended for following their own star. This chance is a lot more than so many people will ever have the courage to do.
Bon.. really stupid comments. You are obviously not very bright. Melanie is the clear winner. She is the most talented and will win tomorrow.
some of you are very miserable individuals! Why does dislike for an individual have to spiral into nastiness. You guys don't know what will visit you in your lifetime.
To Rezzy & Bon: No hating please. I am sure your looks aren't so hot and you can't carry a tune. Melanie was the best on both her songs tonight hands down. You may not like her style but she will have a long career. No need to talk about her looks, she is beautiful just the way she is. Who doesn't wear extensions anyways? Josh - sounds like Bob Seger, not fresh. Chris - OMG good stage presence but cannot sing - not gifted with voice. (BTW - his sis Gina is awesome but didn't make the cut). JMO so don't hate. Good luck to all three!
Someone take that tarted up walrus to Sea World where she belongs. I felt like throwing dead fish at the screen.
None of these talented folks have the X factor IMO. It's amazing that with all the money this show has behind it and all the auditions, THESE are the creme of the crop? Just sayin. I try to watch but it's boring at this point...and I'm a HUGE fan!
The first time I heard her (at her audition) I thought, they can stop looking now. They've found the winner. That's why I was so surprised when Simon sent her home.
Paula was right. Her voice is impeccable.
Melanie slayed that song! I'm a little disappointed they all sang their audition songs again, but they all did a great job.
Her face looks very tangerine-orange tonight. Did anyone else notice her island accent was MIA again tonight? It is like once she declared "Dis is da Real Melowneeeee" she decided to abandon it. Oh well...whatever works, Mel!
Maybe Herman Cain can become a new judge. I heard he's looking for work. Look out JLo...he might be groping you under the table!
Oh yeah, like Chris is SO much better-looking than Melanie and Josh? Come ON! I hate to bash someone for their looks because it's shallow and petty, but if you're going to trash the others, might I point out that Chris is no pin-up model? He has teeth like a jack-o-lantern. If you think Melanie won't sell with her face on the cover but Chris will, that's just a double standard. Melanie is a beautiful girl and I for one think it's refreshing to see a female entertainer who isn't a size 0!
Imagine that face on a CD! It wouldn't sell. The hair extensions and make up alone will drain her 5 million in a years time. She will go nowhere. Chris is the only one with potential.
Imagine what Melanie's and Josh's kids would look like EEEEEEEK!!
I agree. I think Simon offered that kind of money to get professional or semi professional artist to audition but either they got rid of them in the audition process or it just didn't work cause we've see people with so much more potential in other shows
Syesha was a very very good singer, but she needed good management. That's what gets you ahead in the business, a manager who can take you on and run with it.
