The X Factor winner Melanie Amaro

From early reject to grand-prize winner, Melanie Amaro was crowned champion of Fox's "The X Factor" yesterday, winning a $5 million recording contract and starring role in a Pepsi commercial that will air during next year's Super Bowl. The 19-year-old songbird erupted into a flood of joyful tears last night upon hearing she was crowned the winner of the contest. Just seconds after she was declared the winner of the Fox talent competition, Melanie Amaro's boyfriend shared her joy by rushing onstage to give her a hug.
