Simone Battle was destined to become a star. During her audition for The X Factor in 2011, she made a lasting impression on Simon Cowell and would go on to place in the final 17. Sadly, she passed away at the age of 25 on Sept. 5, leaving the judges and contestants from The X Factor devastated.

‘The X Factor’ starlet may have won the competition, but she’s still fighting with the battle of the bulge. After being forced to lose weight by her new record label, a source tells HollywoodLife.com the singer is making progress.
In today’s industry, it takes more than a $5 million voice to be a star. Melanie Amaro had the chops to win The X Factor, but now her record label wants her to have a rock-on body to pair with her rock-on voice. Despite being forced into shape by music executive L.A. Reid, Melanie seems to be making process in reshaping her image.
L.A. Reid has reportedly put Melanie Amaro on a strict diet and fitness plan so she’ll drop weight. Do YOU think that’s fair to demand?
Melanie Amaro may be sitting on a $5 million recording contract after winning season one of The X Factor, but she’s certainly not sitting on her couch. The 19-year-old British Virgin Islands singer has been told to get herself in shape — and the record label exec is doing what he can to help her out.
Melanie is busy recording her new album with Justin’s Grammy Award-winning vocal producer, and HollywoodLife.com has all of the EXCLUSIVE details!

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.
Did the finalists have themselves a merry little Christmas, or did they go all out with a celebratory bash? Get the details here!
Anyone who watched the first season of The X Factor knows it’s been a stressful couple of months for winner Melanie Amaro, and runners-up Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene. That’s why HollywoodLife.com is happy to report that all three finalists “spent the Christmas holiday with family at their respective homes.”
Are you with me here? Have YOU ever gotten as deeply involved with ‘AI’ contestants as you did with X Factor’s Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene and Rachel Crow?
I challenge American Idol to come up with a crop of “artists” as outstanding as the finalists on the first season of X Factor.
I’m thrilled for Melanie Amaro, but will Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene fall off the map after losing on ‘The X Factor’?
Adam Lambert, Clay Aiken, Jennifer Hudson: it’s happened before on American Idol. The second and even third place (and lower) contestants end up outdoing the original winner — so will this happen with The X Factor‘s Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik?
After a finale to top all finales, the first ever USA ‘X Factor’ winner was announced. Are YOU happy with who we chose?
The X Factor finale started off on an exciting foot with the top 12 contestants singing Lady Gaga‘s “The Edge of Glory,” which was bittersweet seeing Rachel Crow and Astro, who were kicked off possibly too soon. Up next, we saw holidays tunes by the top three — Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene — which were lovely, but ultimately, we wanted to see who was the winner of the $5 million recording contract!
All three ‘X Factor’ finalists deserve to have big singing careers and God willing, they will. But here’s why Josh Krajcik deserves THE $5 million contract!
Josh Krajcik is anything but gorgeous and he won’t be rolling out any dance party hits, BUT here’s why HE should win – you can listen to his big, powerful, raspy voice ALL day and ALL night long.
The final three botched their duets with celebrity superstars, but soared with their solos. Which one got YOUR vote?
We had a rocky start to tonight’s final The X Factor performances. The first songs, which were supposed to be exciting and touching duets with famous artists, were totally awkward, poorly executed messes — leaving us scratching our heads and feeling disappointed in the final three. However, Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro and Chris Rene all made up for their lackluster starts with INCREDIBLE second performances. In fact, I’m still sitting here with chills — completely conflicted about who should be deemed the $5 million winner.
