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!

Miley Cyrus Has Finally Committed— To New Record Label!!

miley-cyrus-rca-record-deal.jpg

First comes love, then comes …a new record deal?!

Miley Cyrus couldn't be tamed by longtime label Hollywood Records, so she has now signed with RCA with the promise of allowing her to spread her MileyBird wings!!!

The former Disney Channel star will be joining the likes of Pink, Kelly Clarkson, and Chris Brown on the label, so we'd say her career is in some pretty talented and trustworthy hands.

Under the direction of RCA, the former Disney Channel star's next album will feature a slew of star-studded collaborators including Pharrell Williams, Hit-Boy, Da Internz, Mary J. Blige and Tyler, the Creator.

We can't wait, y'all!!!

Sure, let us check to see if we have change for a… wait, HUH?!

Yup, T.I. is auctioning himself off to the highest bidder and the starting price is $75 million!!

As cute as he would surely look vacuuming our yoga mats in a French maid's outfit, we might have to pass.

LOLz, JK!

The Hotlanta native isn't looking to do housework for that kind of cheddar, though — he's negotiating the terms of a new three-album record contract with anyone who will front him the cash!

From what we hear, the rapper already has more suitors than a Disney princess!

Dr. Dre's wined and dined T.I. at Katana recently, hoping to sign him on Interscope, while Jay-Z is maneuvering to land him on RocNation!

Wowzers!! He's like the most popular kid at school!

He sure has come a long way since his drug arrest and bigoted comments!

Simon Cowell: No One Else Will Get Emblem3 But Me!

Emblem3 Simon Cowell Signed Record Deal

Country crooner Tate Stevens might've taken home the X Factor crown last night, but Simon Cowell has his eyes set on another XF talent!

From what we last heard, Simon was gearing up to turn his boy bro trio, Emblem3, into superstars with a contract… despite getting eliminated just one week shy of the finale!

The boys, who were called heartthrobs by L.A. Reid, have already built up quite a fanbase from the show — and Simon's NOT one to let them slip away!

Last night at the finale, Cowell stated:

Totally Not Creepy Love Song For Joseph Gordon-Levitt

SOMEBODY, pleeeeease give this guy a record deal!!

One of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's most dedicated and talented fans has written him a beautiful (and okay, maybe a little creepy) love song.

PRESSSSS PLAAAAY to hear the lovely love song (above)!

The song accurately reelects his — and most of our — feelings about the dreamy Inception actor.

It's well written, well sung and the dude is cuuuute! JGL could totes go gay for him. LOLZ!
