The first winner of 'The X Factor (US)' is now an artist of Epic Records which is run by one of the show's judges.

"The X Factor (US)" winner Melanie Amaro has scored herself a recording deal with judge L.A. Reid's label, Epic Records. "We all agreed that Epic would be the right fit for Melanie. L.A. made it clear that he wanted the opportunity to work with her and with his track record, you can't say no to that," Simon Cowell said of his approval.

Epic is part of Sony Music Empire which will provide Amaro with $5 million. "I joined The X Factor to be able to discover undeniable talent such as Melanie," Reid said in the release. "I am pleased that she is now signed to Epic Records because I believe we have only scratched the surface on uncovering her talent and her inevitable journey to super-stardom."

Amaro would also star in a Pepsi commercial which will be aired during the Super Bowl in February. The carbonated drink brand is the main sponsor of the competition show.
