The X Factor Winner Will Be Crowned Tonight Live!

December 22, 2011 08:24 AM by Lisa Princ

Last night on The X Factor, it was the ultimate battle for a $5 million dollar contract and a Pepsi commercial. Judges L.A. Reid, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, and Simon Cowell could not contain their excitement for the final three. But after Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro, and Chris Rene took the stage, who deserves to be crowned the winner? More after the jump!

Tonight on the X Factor, we will watch as Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro, or Chris Rene is crowned the winner of the very first season. Fox promises it will be an awesome show, with a star-studded finale featuring special performances by Justin Bieber, Leona Lewis, Pitbull and Ne-Yo, among other special surprise guest artists on Thursday, Dec. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed).

Last night, when the final three took the stage, even Simon Cowell had a hard time calling it. Obviously, we know that Simon is leaning toward his contestant, Melanie Amaro to win, but he also told both Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik that they had a $5 million dollar song last night. Tonight, we are anticipating a close finish, which will most likely have record setting votes again, but who deserves to win?

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!

    Definitely Melanie Amaro is going to take the other two to the cleaners. She is tooo good.

    I am still a fan of Chris Rene. He has many talents, he writes his own songs ,he entertains when he performs and has heart.. he leaves you wanting to hear more from him..Melanie has a beautiful voice ,but she does’nt draw me in. She does’nt entertain me. I am always left feeling who is this person?? And Josh, give him the right music and he soars. I think he would do well..But in the end I am left voting for CHRIS!!!

    If this was AI, it’d be Melanie for sure. She can sing circles around the other two with her “Streisand-esque” voice and appearance. But its the X-Factor and Chris Rene has the total package for a career just starting out. He doesn’t need to have a great voice because he writes his own music and has a stage presence just made for live shows. And LA Reid to back him too. Josh is excellent but a bit of a clutz. He doesn’t dance and I’m pretty sure after hearing his “Something” and “At Last” he doesn’t have much in the rhythm department either. Those songs came across as stilted to me rather than just expressively “his own”.

    I think it will be between Josh and Melanie. I feel Josh is amazing and should win.

    All three are amazing and it is most difficult to pick just one. Of course, Melanie has an amazing gift with her voice, however, Josh also has a strong voice. Chris has charisma and showmanship,plus talent in writing songs. I think the 5 million should be split between all three. But, I am certain that all 3 will have a future in the industry due to their exposure on the X factor. Good luck to all it was an amazing journey.

    Melanie has to win this she has a powerful voice and have been consistent throughout the competition. She is the best and neither of the guys can touch her. I only wish it was left up to the judges and not the public were talking 5 millions dollars and just because you like how someone entertains and can’t really sing is not worth the 5 millions dollars. The X factor is about who has the best voice as well as the stage performance and Melanie has the whole package. I like Josh but I really would buy his music but Melanie I would purchase the misure.

    Josh is the one with the X Factor! All three are very talented, but he has such a unique sound and soul to his performances. He is the real deal and hasn’t changed since he started the competition. Josh for the win!!!

    I believe all three of the x-factor all deserve something after weeks of great performances. Maybe the 5 million should be split and 1 million to second runner up and 1 million to 3rd runner up and 3 million to the winner,
