Now – What do we know about Melanie?
Melanie Amaro, 18, Sunrise, FL
Melanie’s stunning performance of Beyonce’s “Listen” was like a gorgeous needle in the haystack of crazy/bad/wrong. She was so great, Simon told her that she was the reason he wanted to bring the Factor to America! Leading music producer, Dominic Pickering, agreed with Cowell.
She’s a Twitter junkie! While Chris Rene’s Twitter account has been suspended, Melanie’s is still active. (Whether that says anything about their respective futures on the show, we don’t know.) Melanie obviously enjoys engaging with her fans; she’s constantly replying to tweets, thanking everyone for their support. She also posted a cute photo of herself yesterday! http://twitpic.com/6rl8ld/full
She loves gospel music! Melanie tore the roof off a gospel concert in June 2010 with a Cece Winans cover. Hallelujah indeed!
After she was eliminated from the Judges’ Homes, a guilt-ridden Simon flew down to Florida to get her back! It sure paid off!
We continue to follow her career with great interest!
