Amaro – Is it a Scam?
American-born British Virgin Islands singer, Melanie Amaro comes with an estimated net worth of $5 million as of 2011. She is the winner of the initial season of The X Factor USA in 2011. Born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Melanie Amaro grew up in Tortola, British Virgin Islands. She spent much of her youth with her grandparents, and also would go back and forth between her parents in America and her grandparents in Tortola, on account of economic constraints. She began singing as a child and performed at community and church events. She auditioned for the very first season of the “X Factor” in the U.S., and was chosen to carry on to “Boot Camp”. Nevertheless, she was cut at that stage. Simon Cowell, in consultation with all the other judges, determined he had made a blunder, and he flew to her house and invited her to rejoin the competition. She afterwards reached the finals and was named the 1st winner of “X Factor” in the USA and was awarded a $5 million recording contract with Syco Music and Epic Records. Besides the contract, Amaro also appeared in a Pepsi commercial alongside Sir Elton John, which aired during Super Bowl XLVI on NBC.
Amaro was likewise the youngest contestant to win the contest since the show’s run (2011-2013).
In June 2011, Amaro was convinced by her mom to audition for the first season of The X Factor USA. She previously tried auditioning at her local Fox affiliate for a “fast pass”, but was not well received by producers there and subsequently auditioned with the public at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida. Amaro was initially not chosen to be part of the Top 16 and was eliminated in the girls’ classification. However, after 2 weeks Cowell surprised her at her Florida home, inviting her back to the contest after determining he had made “a tremendous mistake” in not including her. Amaro progressed to the live shows in Cowell’s girls’ category, along with Rachel Crow, Drew, Tiah Tolliver and Simone Battle. The addition of Amaro took the absolute quantity of qualifiers for the first live show to 17. On December 15, Amaro won a place in the final along with Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik. The following week, she was declared the victor. Amaro was also declared to be the show’s youngest contestant to win at age 19. Her prize was a $5 million recording contract with Syco Music as well as a Sony Music label, that is the largest guaranteed prize in television history. Shortly after winning, Sony Music label Epic Records announced they had officially signed Amaro, who will soon be working alongside L.A. Reid at the label. In addition to the contract, Amaro also appeared in a Pepsi commercial alongside Sir Elton John, which aired during Super Bowl XLVI on NBC.
