Last night on The X Factor, we watched as the remaining three finalists blew us away with their performances. While, we each have our own opinions of who should win the $5 million dollar prize, it is probably no surprise that Simon Cowell thinks that Melanie Amaro should win. More after the jump!
The X Factor will crown a winner tonight, and it comes as no shock that Simon Cowell is rooting for his last lady standing, Melanie Amaro. Ironically, Melanie Amaro was the contestant that Simon Cowell cut from the show at first, but then went to her home to ask her back after chatting with the other judges. Melanie Amaro blew us all away last night with her second performance, but will it be enough to earn her the win, or is Simon about to be disappointed?
After the show, Simon spoke to US Weekly, and he told them: “I was nervous until that very last song by Melanie. If that doesn’t win the competition, I might as well give up,” adding: “But you know, my gut, my heart tells me that Melanie should win after tonight.” Despite the fact that Simon Cowell thinks that Melanie Amaro should win, he admits that the other contestants were great also.
So who does Simon Cowell feel is the greatest threat to Melanie Amaro? He isn’t sure, as he went on to say: “I would have said Josh but then Chris Rene’s second performance, you could feel in the room that people liked him. I know Josh has got a lot of support.” Simon Cowell is preparing himself for anything tonight, as he knows as well as we do that anything can happen, despite what we may think should happen.
As far as we are concerned, all three finalists rocked it last night, and definitely proved to us why they deserved to be there. Did you vote last night? Who are your rooting for to take home the $5 million dollar prize on The X Factor tonight? We want to hear your thoughts! Sound off below and share your comments with us!
