X-Factor USA‘s first champion, Melanie Amaro, has a lot to look forward to. She recently signed a contract with Epic Records, and of course, she gets to decide how she’s going to put that $5 Million prize to use.

While the world has eyes on the Super Bowl, they’ll also have a chance to see Melanie’s Pepsi commercial for the first time. She’ll be rocking out beside the legendary Elton John, and apparently singing this electro-pop infused version of Aretha Franklin‘s classic track “Respect”. Take a listen below, and see a little behind the scenes footage after the jump:

Melanie’s rendition of “Respect” is available for download on iTunes
