Just a few months ago, Melanie Amaro was crowned the winner of the first season of the X Factor U.S. The win secured the 19-year-old singer a $5 million recording contract with Syco Music and Epic Records as well as a Pepsi commercial set to debut at the 2012 Super Bowl. Melanie recently shot the medieval themed commercial with Sir Elton John and we’re just days away from seeing the premiere this Sunday. It will feature Melanie‘s pumped up rendition of Aretha Franklin‘s classic “Respect.” Check out the behind the scenes video below, Enjoy!
