“X Factor” winner Melanie Amaro has inked a deal with Epic Records, making “X Factor” mentor/judge L.A. Reid her boss.

Reid, the Chairman/CEO of the label, says in a statement that he “joined ‘The X Factor’ to be able to discover undeniable talent such as Melanie.”

He adds that he believes we’ve “only scratched the surface on uncovering her talent and her inevitable journey to super-stardom.”


When Amaro won the first season of “X Factor” last month, the 19-year-old was awarded $5 million and the opportunity to star in a Pepsi commercial.

Her “X Factor” mentor, Simon Cowell, said they went with L.A. Reid’s Epic for the up-and-comer because everyone agreed it was the right fit: “L.A. made it clear that he wanted the opportunity to work with her and with his track record, you can’t say no to that,” Cowell says in the statement.

And for her part, Amaro says that she’s ready to get to work on her debut album with the help of Cowell and Reid.
