Love is in the X Factor air!
That’s right. It seems like cupid’s arrow has struck none other than Melanie Amaro and Stereo Hoggz’s lead singer Trace Kennedy the New York Post reported on its ‘Page Six’ gossip section.
Now that Amaro is in the top five and Kennedy has stayed in Los Angeles to work on his music, the romance has bloomed according to close friends. Last week the two posted a photo of them together on Twitter.
“They kept it secret at first, but they have been getting close,” said one of the sources. “Since Trace has been staying in LA to work on his music, while she is there for the show…they’ve been hanging out more.”
The friend added that “Melanie has been telling all her friends what a great guy” Kennedy is and that Kennedy “immediately liked Melanie when they met.”
The friends added that Kennedy has “being so supportive for her now as the competition on the show heats up.”
If Amaro wins the X Factor she will take home a five million dollar contract as well as a recording contract to kick off her music career.
