Melanie Amaro Recording Contract

After winning ‘The X Factor,’ Melanie Amaro is now cashing in on her mega win

The X Factor‘s Melanie Amaro is the winner of the largest prize in TV history and now she’s officially collecting her goods — a $5 million recording contract with L.A. Reid‘s Epic Records and her own Pepsi commercial.

Epic Records — which is one of Sony’s labels — announced they had officially signed the 19-year-old British Virgin Islands singer in a release Jan. 3.

“I joined The X Factor to be able to discover undeniable talent such as Melanie,” L.A. said in a statement.

“I am pleased that she is now signed to Epic Records because I believe we have only scratched the surface on uncovering her talent and her inevitable journey to super-stardom.”

Although we knew Melanie was guaranteed a signing deal, we’re still waiting to hear about the runners up — Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene.

It should not come to anyone’s surprise that Melanie Amaro signed with L.A. Reid’s record label as the judges had first dibs on all the talent on the show.

Do YOU think they’ll be given contracts too?
