I love you all so very much,” she gushed. “It’s so good to know that so many people are supporting me right now and they’re so happy for me, that makes me feel amazing!”

Melanie — who was mentored by Simon Cowell — said the moment when host Steve Jones announced she had won the competition left her stunned.

“I was so speechless. I was overwhelmed. I didn’t know what to say ‘cause that just brought me to an all time high. My grandma from the Virgin Islands was on there. I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s my grandma! That’s my best friend, family, brothers.’ it was like, ‘Oh my God!’ It was crazy,” she recalled.
