Simon Cowell X Factor Deals Rene Astro Krajcik, Simon Cowell picked out Rene, Astro and Krajcik from the list of X Factor USA finalists as he spoke to the Hollywood Reporter in the wake of his act Melanie Amaro’s win two weeks ago.
Amaro will receive a $5m deal with Sony Music as part of her prize, but Cowell said that runner-up Josh and third-placed Chris may also be signed to the label, along with Brian ‘Astro’ Bradley, who was voted into seventh place.
Calling Melanie the ‘priority’, Cowell seemed to be implying that he would sign up finalists Rene, Astro and Krajcik too, as he has done with runners-up in the UK X Factor.
‘Anyone we’re genuinely not interested in, they’ll be let go,’ the music mogul said. There is a lot of interest in a lot of the artists.
‘We can’t sign everyone, but there’s going to be quite a few that are going to get deals. You’re not going to let Astro go.
‘You’re not going to let Chris [Rene] go [or] let Josh go. We’d be mad. But she [Melanie Amaro] is the priority.’
One of the UK X Factor’s most successful former contestants, JLS, have spoken about their expectation that Simon would give them a record deal after they finished second on the ITV show in 2008.
The foursome told The Graham Norton Show: ‘We weren’t happy. We literally ran back stage and banged on Simon’s door and he was saying, “That’s it, the show’s over,” and we were saying, “No, what’s going to happen? We need a deal now.”‘
