Melanie Amaro vs. Javier Colon vs. Scotty McCreery – The Sing-Off! – Who Wins?
Nigel Lythgoe, the producer of Idol, quickly shot the idea down because his show produces “stars” (as if a competition like that would be beneath the franchise).
Well, sorry Nigel, nothing is going to stop us from doing it anyway. As a warm-up for this season, let’s use the winners of last year’s competitions for the first ever Voice-Idol-Factor-Sing-Off! Melanie Amaro vs. Javier Colon vs. Scotty McCreery? Who is your champion?
Here are videos of their “signature songs” on their respective shows plus a poll in the end. Later, I’m going to expand this to include the finalist from each program (maybe Top 4) so we can have an ultimate-ultimate winner (I think Haley Reinhart is going to win that one knowing you guys). But for now, just the winners – take the poll!
Scotty McCreery – “Baby Lock Dem Doors”
Javier Colon – “Time After Time”
Melanie Amaro – “Listen”
I vote for…

you know the different to compare idol , x-factor,voice audition? x-factor with complete song and music acompany on a stage like concert,idol no music just a room and short song only,voice with guitar on stage also . with the background it will be different.
@Mikhail XO HI MICKY
MELANIE AMARO = GOOD VOICESCOTTY MCCREERY = GOOD PERSONALITYJAVIER COLON = GOOD STYLEIf only we could combine them into one super singer. Oh wait, we already have that person. KELLY ROWLANDS BLACK TH0NG!
javier,i dont know about him...scotty,i like how he sings...MELANIE AMARO over talented powerful,(high note)
i vote for melanie..:)
elvis presley donot need to scream with high note but sell records and break records so most importants people buying records and love to listen
To all of you that think Scotty is incapable of noting else but country, watch the youtube videos of his concert in Lancaster and Mary don't you know Christmas song rendition, and his AI performances.... and then let's talk.... a good voice is not enough and this kid has proven it over and over with his success on AI and post AI. Just to quote Simon himself, his got the x factor....
melanie high note have the voice but not for me and not all people like this type of music and melanie donot have that it factor and scotty have that it factor. scotty not just country he cover all right mama-elvis,you got a friend,amazed, you always on my mind-elvis,gone,where were you-alan jackson, t-r-o-u-b-l-e -elvis, i vote for scotty i can listen to his song everyday since AI until now still listen replay and replay
they already compete and they win now go outside and compete with actual sales of cd and charting not another competition. this is stupid. this is a plan of simon for publicity for his ownself. kelly clakson force to compete for world idol during simon times and kelly say it is stupid to compete again .
Melanie is just a screamer. Not a singer. There's a difference.
Javier - pretty voice but pedestrian.
Scotty - not the best voice but a true singer.
Melanie and Javier can't do what Scotty did:
Spiritual: Long Black Train http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLJ2__0KiU8
Touching Tear Jerker: Letters from Home http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSGd6_HAETg
Humour: That's Alright Mama http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7iz7OREZ0c
This is hard. I didn't watch X-Factor, so I hadn't seen Melanie Amaro before. I also didn't know that song. She made me cry.
I watched Javier again and he gave me goosbumps.
Scotty has the charm, a great voice, and star power. Even though I don't like country music, it's difficult not to love him.
I guess I have to vote for Javier based on the song and musical style. By that, I mean that of the three, Javier is the only one whose music I would ever likely buy. I think if they were all three on the same show, I'd probably be supporting Javier, but I'd probably like the other two also.
watch some more javier, Melanie and Scotty could NEVER NEVER grasp this emotion. Find me a video of either singing that could bring you to tears
I don't think there will ever be enough divas in this world. Even though people say there are plenty divas with big voices out there, when you hear a diva like Melanie sings, you always get goosebumps, without fail! I think people can only choose a winner among these three based on their preference of voice. I personally think that Javier overdid the song. And if I listen to voices like Scotty's on the radio, I would switch the channel immediately because it's too boring. And when I listen to Melanie's singing, I get goosebumps. Go Melanie!
Of Course Scotty will win, There's artist like Melanie and Javier all over the place but Scotty's so Unique. i don't think we've heard a voice like that in ages. With the right songs he's gonna be a country legend.
melanie has the best voice so she should win...scotty is no where near as talented vocally as she is...
Scotty by a long shot. He sings country because that is what he loves but he can cover whatever he wants. He might even be in a smaller genre than the others but he will outsell them 10 to 1. The others are talented just Scotty is better
@Dusty125 I'm in. I voted. :)
@Dusty125 voted Holly :)
you have to do "the ultimate winner" rickey!!! fan wars at its best!! (big amounts of traffic too) :D
Talk about desperation from Simon Cowell. I guess he already knew that Melanie will not be the superstar he invisioned. He needs a gimmick to make sure Melanie will not be forgotten by the public.......I don't care if someone has an amazing voice.... what is important is the song itself. If the song sucks, you will not go anywhere. We have artists now a day who sound horrrible but yet they are popular because of the songs they sung.
To be honest, watching these auditions back to back, The Voice followed by The X Factor have clearly the superior audition format. American Idol still has the clout with a long-standing fan base, but this year is going to be very very interesting with these 3 reality singing shows.
Javier no question, Melanie Amaro had a good audition and absolutely NOTHING else. I went to see Javier in concert a few nights ago and it was the most amazing performance ever. His voice is flawless
I guess the cd sales will show but I can't see Melanie selling anywhere near as many as Scotty.
@XL Woo Hoo.
@Farseer Did ya see Melanie sing Desperado last season, a country tinged ballad?? Look for it and educate yourself. A screamer, not a singer. If I could only kick on here.
Love Scotty - didn't ever like Melanie and didn't watch Javier but I hope he got better as he went on cos the audition ain't great. Thanks for the links - I just relived some of the Scotty magic I'd forgotten about. The best ones seldom win the contests - in Scotty's case the best one won but not Melanie's.
@ddevlin11 Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning was a tear jerker for me.
Scotty as all the makings of a "star" as he has proven by breaking records constantly.
I don't think that's a fair comparison - Scotty may not go as high as Melanie but she can't go as low as him - I like his low notes far better than her high ones.
@realphill And this is WHY I am so excited about the success of The Voice and The X Factor. We can actually do something like this now! So psyched!
@realphill Yes I know. I just had to do a quick fix right now with these three. But the ultimate winner is coming. So exciting!!!!
@Julie_Idol Scotty because he was on Idol or because of the singing?
@Rickey Just what I was thinking. Seeing these back to back I see why I LOVED the X Factor's audition process and for the first time in a decade SKIPPED Idol until Hollywood Week.
Javier is so lost in this shuffle. Scotty can sing but his range is very limiting. I don't usually go for the girl or the big, BIG voice---but there's just something about the earthy realness of Melanie that I am drawn to. Crown to Melanie.
@Rickey@Julie_Idol Because of the singing.. That kid is mad talented. There's singers like Javier (smooth voiced black guys singing soul) and Melanie(big voiced High Note-Hitting Diva's) all over the place, but Scotty's(Throw back deep voices country) so unique. I dont think i can name one artist like him out there.
@fuckhead I'm having such a hard time with these Voice videos. NBC has removed them all - I think Javier's might have affected you differently if you saw the backstory they aired before he sang just like for Melanie and Scotty.
apparently you missed the week he sang Elvis' "That's All Right Mama" He CAN sing other genres... he CHOOSES not too because he is staying true to who he is unlike so many others who will do whatever they're told too regardless of beliefs or morals.
@Rickey Yes. Tomorrow, tomorrow.
@fuckhead LOL! I'm actually working on the Top 12 post right now but it's a bit late so it will be up tomorrow. It's very interesting!
@Rickey Simon had another brainstorm with this idea didn't he.
