Melanie Amaro X FactorMelanie Amaro X Factor, “The X Factor” judges didn’t want to stop listening to Melanie Amaro. The powerful 19-year-old vocalist from Sunrise, Fla., wowed the Fox talent competition’s panel with her soaring rendition of Beyonce’s “Listen” during Wednesday’s final performance round, prompting head judge Simon Cowell to declare that Amaro should win the show’s grand prize: a $5 million recording contract and a starring role in a Pepsi commercial.

“That wasn’t a $5 million performance,” declared judge L.A. Reid. “That was a $50 million performance.”

The panel also poured praise on the other two finalists: soulful 30-year-old single father Josh Krajcik of Wooster, Ohio, and 28-year-old singer-rapper Chris Rene of Santa Cruz, Calif. Krajcik accompanied himself on guitar for his final performance of “At Last,” while Rene delivered his original tune “Young Homie” with a group of dancers and singers.

“You make everyone fall in love with you,” judge Paula Abdul told Rene.

Before the final showdown, each singer awkwardly dueted with established artists. Krajcik was joined by Alanis Morissette on “Uninvited,” Rene teamed up with Avril Lavigne for “Complicated,” and Amaro partnered with R. Kelly on “I Believe I Can Fly,” which marked the first time that the R&B star performed his motivational anthem with another singer.
