For Michael Jackson week on “The X Factor,” Melanie Amaro chose “Earth Song,” which Simon Cowell cal;ed one of MJ’s biggest hits, but honestly – we don’t think it’s one of his really well-known hits.

Either way, Melanie brought the house down with it. She seemingly can do no wrong at this point. L.A. says he forgot he was at a competition and that he felt like he was
at a Melanie concert. Nicole says one of the best performances on the
entire show.

What did you think, “X Factor” fans? Is it just Melanie’s competition to win at this point? Or can someone come on strong enough to make this a real competition?
