X Factor Season One Winner Melanie Amaro Dropped From Epic Records?

melanie amaro dropped epic records

Oh no! This makes us super sad!

X Factor’s season three auditions kicked off today in El Lay, but where has season one winner, Melanie Amaro, been??

Unfortunately, it looks as though Mel’s been dropped from Epic Records, though no official confirmation has been made.

The label previously tried to release three different singles — and even had her perform Long Distance on XF this season — but none of them gained any traction.

It also seems that her debut album, Truly, was supposed to drop last year but has since been given a release date of December 31st, 2013!

Not only that, but on Epic’s website, she is no longer listed on the artist roster page… and neither is her fellow XF season one alum, Astro, which can't be a good sign.

Season one’s Chris Rene and Marcus Canty, however, remain on the artist roster page, and so does season two’s girl group, Fifth Harmony.

We think it’s a total shame if Epic really did drop Melanie, seeing as she has SO much talent and such a remarkable voice! Unfortunately, it seems as though not enough support was put behind her in the long-run.

Perhaps they could've done some rebranding??

We wish Melanie the best of luck in the future, though, no matter what the outcome!

X Factor’s season two just seems to be FLYING by and now, we’re already left with our top four contestants!

Last night featured special performances from Ke$ha and season one winner, Melanie Amaro, but it also got rid of two finalists, in its double elimination.

Whether you loved her or hated her, leopard face painted CeCe Frey was ousted right at the top of the show, leaving us with a very tearful Demi Lovato, who now has no contestants left on her team!

Simon Cowell’s girl group, Fifth Harmony landed in the bottom two, along with Diamond White, who both had to sing for survival.

Check out Fifth Harmony taking on Mariah (above)!

Overall, the panel — besides Diamond’s mentor, Britney — chose to keep Fifth Harmony, sending Diamond home for a second time!

Take a look at the 13-year-old’s final performance and see the top four acts… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

That incredible instrument of hers is SO powerful, it punches through our eardrums in the sweetest way possible!

Melanie Amaro's Feet Are NOT Failing! WATCH New Video HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinutePerezTVX FactorMelanie Amaro

Yea girl! Belt it with that exquisite instrument of yours!!!

X Factor season one winner Melanie Amaro emits light rays of talent in her new music video from latest single, Don't Fail Me Now (above)!

The song is ferocious and powerful, but we have to admit, the video is kind of meh compared to Melanie's AWEsome voice. The production value seems downright cheap!

Get yourself a better MV team, Melanie! You need a killer video to compliment those intimidating vocals!
