Melanie Amaro: the first American X Factor winner.

Melanie Amaro on X Factor Stage
American-born British Virgin Islands popstar Melanie Amaro won the first the The X Factor title, the first season of American television series. This victory brings her amazing $5 million recording contract with Epic Records. This 19 year-old vocalist from Sunrise, Fla., won this Fox talent competition Thursday over soulful 30-year-old singer Josh Krajcik of Wooster, Ohio.

"Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God," Amaro repeated after host Steve Jones announced her as the champion. �I feel amazing that I got to do this�I just got to say �thank you�,� the easy-listening hip hopper said when he got the hook.

�We came here to find a superstar and we found a superstar,� Cowell said after show host Steve Jones announced the results at the end of a two-hour broadcast that had included performances by Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder, 50 Cent, Ne-Yo, and Pitbull. Unlike "American Idol," the contest was open to both solo singers and groups, and had a lower minimum age of 12 and no upper age limit. So it's of course a great show for the talents undiscovered yet.
