Video of the day: Melanie Amaro is the X factor winner

After 40 million votes were tabulated yesterday, college freshman Melanie Amaro defeated soulful singer Josh Krajcik and rapper Chris Reneto become the first winner of the US version of the X Factor. Before the winner was unveiled, the three finalists crooned classic Christmas songs, and special guests Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder, Pitbull, Leona Lewis and Ne-Yo performed various duet performances with former contestants. Melanie Amaro’s boyfriend is also a contestant of the show, but his group was eliminated on November 10, 2011, finishing in 11th place. Her mentor Simon Cowell says that four labels are interested in signing Amaro — and they plan to make their decision this weekend.
