There’s nothing Melanie Armaro can’t sing with passion and depth. She proved that on last night’s show, Dec. 15. While I’m personally rooting for Josh Krajcik to win — Melanie will be a Kelly Clarkson hit machine!
She’s got a soaring voice. A stunning, beautiful and God given voice that took the classic song “Feeling Good” to new heights in her second performance last night. And just reflect upon the fact that Melanie comes from a disadvantaged background and hasn’t had professional vocal training – she was born talented.
I thought I had my favorites figured out, but now I think rapper/singer Chris Rene might be the dark horse of the competition!
What a night on The X Factor! After last week’s abysmal Michael Jacksonnight, the final five performers needed to redeem themselves, and they did just that. The first half of the show consisted of “dance hits,” which were hit and miss, but the second half was a plot twist — the singers had only 24 hours to pick a song of their choosing to perform the following night — and honestly, they all shined. Sadly, Rachel Crow didn’t thrill me as much as usual — I predict she’ll be in the bottom. However, Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro and Chris Rene are all strong contenders for first place, in my book.
