Looks like X Factor US winner Melanie Amaro will be getting some company at Sony Music!

Simon Cowell confirmed that Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene, and Astro will get their own deals in 2012.

Sony Music has a nice thing going with Simon through Sony's co-owned Syco Music. It will be Syco Music that will promote, record, and market anyone that Simon signs, including these three dudes. Indeed, even though Melanie is Simon's priority, he explained to sources that he would "mad" to let the three male contestants go.

As we previously reported, Astro has already hooked up with X Factor UK's Cher Lloyd on one of her tracks and Rene's Young Home will reportedly drop in January 2012. But what's next for these bright stars? Will any other contestants join them?

Who do U want to see from X Factor US make it big?

    OH PULEEEZ… NO ONE CARESSSS. ALL THESE REALITY CONTESTANTS ARE FLOPS. THE SHOW IS THE STAR. THESE BRATS ARE JUST THE STAGE HANDS. LOOK AT THE HISTORY. ALL FLOPS EXCEPT KELLY CLARKSON AND CARRIE UNDERWOOD WHO'VE LASTED. LEONA LEWIS IS DONE IN THE US AND LOSING POPULARITY IN THE UK. SUBO FIASCO IS DONE. HER RECORD SALES NOW PLUNGED TO 30% WHAT THEY WERE IN HER DEBUT. FORGET ABOUT MALE WINNERS. NONE HAVE LASTED. THAT'S OVER THE 11 YR HISTORY OF AMERICAN IDOL. THINK THAT'S A PRETTY STRAIGHT MESSAGE. NEXT, FATBOY!!

    This is such bullshit. Just like AI. why have a talent show to find "the one" and then sign the finalists. None of them are going anywhere.



  3. 3

    In order to succeed, your name has to end up being bigger than the tv show you came from.



  4. 4

    It defeats the purpose of the show. I'm sick of it. I live in the UK, so have been stuck with it for years! Fuck the X Factor & Simon Cowell.

    JOKE! This show could not even break a single from that lame excuse of a cry baby washed up judge nicole let alone the winner and these three no talent loosers. Perez, the only reason you can afford to talk to gandi is because you get paid by fox and xfactor to post this SHIT.

    I think its a mistake to sign in with a Simon Cowell company the man only cares about himself. He never produced a relevant star. Jennifer Hudson was a reject of his.

    Re: American Icon – -I agree, and the little girl that was cast off of the show in scandal is the only genuine vocal talent in this bunch. Melanie Amaro has horrible tone and pitch and a very limited range. Thank God for autotune.The young man-astro does have potential in Rap because he writes his own stuff…all others are well…common, and ordinary.:(
