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?
