“X Factor” Names Winner
Melanie Amaro just got a Christmas present she'll never forget!
She's the winner of Season One of "The X Factor", beating out rivals Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik for the $5 million prize, which includes a recording contract a Pepsi Super Bowl commercial.
An emotional Amaro held it together long enough to tell host Steve Jones, "Thank you. God is good!", adding, "I'm so happy and I don't know what to say. This is something I've wanted for all my life!" before launching into a rendition of "Listen".
