As the X Factor gears up for tonight's big finale, one thing's for sure: We all know what Simon Cowell's thinking. Mainly because he announced on last night's show, part one of the finale, that Melanie Amaro should win the grand prize!

The 19 year-old from Sunrise, Fla., soared with Beyoncé's "Listen" which left Simon declaring she should win the $5 million recording contract and a lead role in a Pepsi commercial, as noted by Fox News
Judge L.A. Reid certainly agreed. "That wasn't a $5 million performance," he said. "That was a $50 million performance."
The other two finalists weren't far behind though as Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene belted out "At Last and "Young Homie," respectively.
Let's not forget about the famous duets! Josh joined Alanis Morissette on stage as they sang "Uninvited" and Chris joined Avril Lavigne for "Complicated." Melanie and R. Kelly belted out "I Believe I Can Fly" which was the very first time he performed the song with another performer!
The winner will be crowned during tonight's two-hour finale featuring Justin Bieber. So, the million dollar — check that, five million dollar — question is, do you think Simon's right? Will Melanie win or will Josh or Chris take home the cash?
