Melanie Amaro On why ‘X Factor’ was right for her

Singer says she’ll do big ballads for her debut album

“I’ve seen all these shows over the years – I’ve seen The Voice, America’s Got Talent, this and that – but I was like, ‘This is not my show, it’s not going to work for me,'” says X Factor winner Melanie Amaro. “But then I saw the X Factor advertising all over, and it seemed like it was different from other shows.” In addition to talking about her experience on the show – and specifically, her relationship with judge Simon Cowell – Amaro gave Rolling Stone a sense of what to expect from her debut album. “I’ll definitely do some big ballads, but then I’ll put something else on there that they’re not expecting, but I think they’ll enjoy,” she says.
