Catch ‘The X Factor’ Final Performances

Last night was the big finale of The X Factor, and we watched Melanie Amaro emerge victorious and walk away with a cool $5 million recording contract. But that doesn’t mean runner-up Josh Krajcik and third-placer Chris Rene didn’t turn in memorable performances, too. After dueting with Alanis Morissette, R. Kelly, and Avril Lavigne, this trio had to prove they could hold their own on stage with their “Song To Win.” Before we sit back and anxiously await season two, let’s take one final look at these runner-up artists and catch Melanie Amaro’s triumphant rendition of Beyonce’s “Listen” below.
