America's version of hit Brit singing competition show The X Factor is only in its second season, but the show clearly has the potential to be as big as TV juggernaut American Idol. As we're nearing The X Factor Season 2 finale, the pressure is rising among the remaining contestants, but who will win X Factor 2012? We'll find out in December!
To recap, we know who took The X Factor 2011 crown: then 19-year-old R&B singing sensation Melanie Amaro, who has since been deemed the "Next Mariah Carey". Post-X Factor 2011 win, Melanie signed a deal with LA Reid's Epic Records, was nominated for a Teen Choice Award, was featured in a 2012 Superbowl commerical for Pepsi, and had a pizza named after her — and this was all on top of her whopping $5-million dollar winnings! Melanie also just debuted her new single, "Don't Fail Me Now." Keep up with all of the latest on Melanie here!
