'X Factor's' Chris Rene Could Sign Record Deal With Epic Records

Thu, January 5, 2012 7:46pm EDT by 23 Comments

If the rumors are true, Chris’ name will be added to the list of ‘X Factor’ stars to land a record deal! And we can’t wait!

Chris Rene may not have landed the winning $5 million contract with Epic Records on the X Factor season finale, but according to our sources, a deal with Epic is still possible.

While nothing has been confirmed yet, the Hollywood Reporter also reports that a deal between Chris and Epic is in the works. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Epic to confirm but has yet to receive a response.

Chris placed third in the X Factor finale and was mentored by L.A. Reid. Now that winner Melanie Amaro has signed her contract with Epic Records and Rachel Crow is meeting with Disney -- we can’t wait to see where these X Factor stars end up!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for Chris’ potential record deal? Weigh in below.

Chris Rene deserves the best. I feel like he should of been the winner of X Facoter. He is so unqiue and genuine. I love his music and he is clearly a star. He touches everyone that listens to his music. He has the perfect stage presence that eveyone looks for in a star. He story makes him even more loveable. I hope to see him so far as I know he will. He definitely has the talent.

Favorite moment: When Chris walked on stage, smiled and said Hi Everyone? Thought his song & presentation was great. He has something special. (first time I ever listened to a hip hop song, I’m 74 & country. But I can’t wait to buy his records, and many more.
Who One? I really liked all three, Chris 1; Malanie; but I thought something was up when I voted for Chris every week, never had a problem, and on this night could not get thru to vote (telephone) for 2 hrs. But when others voted from SP FL for Melanie no problem. Something fishy. All forgiven if they sign a contract with Chris.

I too was totally impressed with Chris. Being from Ohio, I felt obligated to vote for Josh (who was great too) but had to vote for Chris too just because he was fantastic. I am 48 and have never liked the type music he plays until he performed it. The messages he put out there were awesome and you could even understand his word, understand his pain, understand one can change their path, and understand life in general. Haven’t been to a concert in years but I would definitely make it to Chris’. Bring on the album Chris-we are impatiently awaiting!!!! You are Great Man!

Chris Rene deserves this and I couldnt be more excited for him. It is crazy that I am a woman of 52 with 2 sons in their 20s and I cannot get enough of this guy. He is infectious in too many ways to count. I find myself constantly wanting to replay his songs and performances. This world craves his lyrics of hope and love. His story and perseverance is what gives us light in this world. He is the one I will always support from xfactor, period.

I truly enjoyed every one of Chris’s performances on “The X Factor”….which proves his music is multi-generational since I am 59 ! I agree with the others, he is a truly gifted performer that will be a great star !

Of all the participants, of all the televised contests combined from the last few years…. I believe none to be as deserving as Chris Rene! He fell on hard times and then turned around and chose to pick himself back up, took out a new lease on life…something that is not nearly as easily done as many probably think it to be. That’s not even the most amazing part of it, it’s why he did it that makes it awesome and inspiring, and I’m sure his son will forever see it as being just that!
