From her very first audition Melanie Amaro sounded like a star. She came across so powerful and I thought to myself this girl is good, she can really sing! I was shocked when she got eliminated in the first round of the competition; not making it in the final twelve and I wondered If Simon had lost his mind. Luckily, he came to his senses and went and brought her back. However, some damage had been done to Melanie’s self confidence. I watched her perform brilliantly week after week and yet at eliminations I would see her looking so unsure as if waiting to hear her name call any moment to say she was going home and each time I kept thinking Simon really damaged this girl’s confidence. Then came that week when she finally broke through. She let go all her pent up emotions, all things she was feeling inside , everything came rushing to the surface and a new Melanie emerged. A Melanie who was no longer afraid, a Melanie who had faced up to her fears, a Melanie who had regained her confidence and was ready to shine and there was no stopping her after that.

Melanie Amaro became proud of who she was, an island girl.  She no longer felt the need to pretend to be someone who she wasn’t and her accent immediately changed. She was finally comfortable in her own skin and as it turned out that was all she needed. She is a very talented young lady, who has a powerful voice and all that had been lacking was the confidence she had lost and once she regained that the only other person who I felt could have won was Josh Krajcik, who as it turns out ended in second place.

While I will not say she came out on top each week for the most part, she was one of the strongest contestants in the competition, you could always depend on her to deliver and I cannot think of a more deserving winner. Congratulations Melanie you earned it!
