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!

Nicole Scherzinger Does NOT Regret Her Controvesial X Factor Decision!

Nicole Scherzinger doesn't regret putting Marcus Canty and Rachel Crow into a deadlock on Thursday night's episode of X Factor.

After she couldn't make a decision between the contestant who had been in the bottom two three weeks in a row and Rachel, she left it up to America decide.

Surely, SURELY, she figured America's votes would send Marcus home but this was just a way to let him go without her having to be the bad guy.

But instead, Rachel ended up being the one to get the boot. And it was DEVASTATING!

The audience boo'd, audiences at home tweeted in fury… it's just been on big sh*tstorm! But she doesn't regret any of it, saying:

X Factor Dramz! We Can't Believe Nicole Scherzinger Did This!

Wow… just wow…

We can't believe it went down like this!!!

Let's set it up for ya real quick. On the last X Factor, the bottom two were Marcus Canty and Rachel Crow. Marcus had two votes against him and Rachel only had one. Marcus has been in the bottom two for the last three weeks! Clearly, it was his time to go. He's good but Rachel is WAY better!!

With two votes against him, they only needed one more vote to send Marcus on his way, but when it was time for Nicole Scherzinger to be a judge, she couldn't be. In the deciding position, she decided to vote against Rachel just so it could be forced into a deadlock.

In a deadlock, the voters' choice decides. And unfortunately, Rachel was eliminated.

What happens next was just unbearable! It was so hard to watch! So hard!!

But we believe in Rachel! We know she's going to be a Disney star, and maybe this will give her even more attention. We love you, Rachel Crow!!!

Ugh, U have to watch this atrocity for URself. Play it!!

Mini Usher! X Factor's Marcus Canty Is SO Smooth!

Filed under: TV NewsRihannaMusic MinuteUsherX Factor

We're still feelin' that Usher vibe, Marcus…and we're loving it!

Marcus Canty brought it to the next level with his Judges' House audition (above), and cleared away any skepticism that we may have had about his ability to be a star.

Mini Usher was SO sexy and confident while performing Casey & JoJo's All My Life for Rihanna and L.A. Reid! We're very, very impressed!!!

What do U think? Is Marcus Canty a star????
