The X Factor final performances – care to predict a winner?

Tonight was the final performance episode of this first season of The X Factor in the US, and what a way to end the competition. The three finalists – Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene, and Melanie Amaro – pulled out all of the stops for their final performances.

First, each performed a duet with a star, Josh with Alanis Morrisette, Chris with Avril Lavigne, and Melanie with R Kelly. While they were all good, only Melanie really looked at home singing with a star. (Although LA Reid, in typical fashioned, criticized her.)

Then the contestants each sang one final song. While Josh sang well, Chris and Melanie really connected with their songs – tears from them, the judges, their fans back at home via satellite.

If I had to make a prediction, I’d say Melanie and Chris will be the last two standing, but which one takes home the prize is a toss us. Talent-wise, Melanie wins, but both have such compelling stories, make fans feel so connected, and have so much to offer not only musically but emotionally and spiritually, that either could be the last singer standing.

What do you think? Which contestant will take home the prize? We’ll find out tomorrow on the results show!

PLEASE BRING BACK ‘X-FACTOR’ AND DUMP ‘THE VOICE’ ASAP! It is NOT fair at all the this rip-off show, THE VOICE, get’s to make oodles of dollars, and go on ruining marriages (gwen Stefani and blake Shelton’s for 2) and so forth, when SIMON COWELL’S ‘X-FACTOR’ flopped in AMERICA (it’s big in U.K. and so on,) when THE VOICE IS JUST A RIP OFF OF X-FACTOR IN THE FIRST PLACE! Look at the facts, it started earlier in the early 2000’s when Voice came along several years later. The guy just STOLE the team mentors concept and ran with it! I was pissed anyway, but then when they CANCELLED the x-factor here after ONLY 3 seasons, I went ballistic! NOT FAIR NOT FAIR NOT FAIR!

SIMON picks stars and the voice and mark burnett do NOT! WITNESS KELLY CLARKSON, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, JORDAN SPARKS, and more importantly, ONE DIRECTION AND the X-FACTOR UK FACTION, not to mention, FIFTH HARMONY, the American X-FACTOR ONES! PLEASE BRING IT BACK ABC OR SOMEBODY ELSE, AND CANCEL THE VOICE! It just parades prepackaged, polished, pretty popstars in front of the judges AFTER they turn around, yawn!
