Last night on The X Factor, Melanie Amaro, Chris Rene, and Josh Krajcik blew us away with the best performances of the season. We know who Simon Cowell wanted to win, but who did the voters choose as the winner of The X Factor’s first season? Read on to find out!
The X Factor kicked off tonight as the top twelve acts returned for a performance of Edge Of Glory by Lady Gaga. Steve Jones then asked Simon what his holidays plans were, to which Simon replied that he would be heading to the North Pole to hang out with the penguins. Melanie Amaro took the stage next with a performance of All I Want For Christmas is You by Mariah Carey, and she sounded just as good as Mariah. Melanie then watched some supportive messages from her family and friends.
The Christmas tunes continued as Chris Rene was up next with a performance of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, and he was incredible as usual. Chris put a more original twist on the tune, and the judges praised him as the crowd went wild. Josh Krajcik then hit the stage for a performance of Please Come Home For Christmas, and like the others, he was perfect and everyone loved him.
Justin Bieber then took the stage with a medley of Christmas tunes, and a duet with Stevie Wonder. At the end of his performance, Justin Bieber called Drew out to the stage for a hug and as Steve chatted with them, Justin revealed that he thought that Drew would be a big star in the future. Then it was time for some results, and it was revealed that the person who finished in 3rd place was Chris Rene!
Rachel Crow paid us a visit next to let us all know that she was doing okay, and that she has a bright future ahead of her. Then it was more jam packed performances as we watched Leona Lewis take the stage, followed by 50 Cent. Superstars Pitbull and Ne-Yo were up with a medley of tunes, and at the end, they were joined by none other than Marcus Canty, who looked like a pro out there!
Melanie Amaro and Josh Krajcik heard some messages from their loved ones once again, before they sang one final duet together. Finally, it was time to find out the results of the votes, and the winner of the very first season of The Factor is Melanie Amaro! Congratulations to Melanie Amaro! What an amazing end to an amazing show!
