Famously In Love

Rian Edwards is just an average girl with dreams to sing. She's a very musical person and can play several different instruments really well.

When she auditions for the X Factor to go after her dreams, she never expects to win the contest and what happens next completely blows her away.

She definitely never expected to go on tour with One Direction.

1. One-The Winner Is

"Rian? You're on in five." The stage manager said to me as my stylist finished putting the gold glitter on my eyelids.

"Okay. Thank you." I told him as he hurried off to the other side of the area we were in back stage.

"And done." She said as she stepped back to admire her work.

"Aw, Ri, you just look so gorgeous!" She said as she hugged me.

"I really hope you win." She whispered.

"Me too." I said as I hugged her back.

"Two minutes!" The stage manager yelled again from the entrance to the stage that I was to enter the stage at.

Taking one last look in the mirror, I took in the cropped black leather jacket atop the black chiffon tank top, paired with a black and gold glittered mini and some black heeled ankle boots. Glancing at my long dark brown hair that was in perfect ways down my back and my gold glittered eyes that brought out the brown irises with the simple lip gloss, I walked to the stage entrance and took several deep breaths. I was then handed a microphone and I gave myself a mini pep talk and told myself to do my best.

"And wrapping up the show tonight, Ms. Rian Edwards!"  The announcer said as I made my way onto the stage and the crowd cheered.

This is it. I thought as I took center stage as the first notes of the song started to play.

Give it all you've got Rian. You've got this.

And as I started singing the first notes of the song, I gave it all I had. Everything.

Our love runs deep like a Chevy
If you fall I'll fall with you baby
'Cause that's the way we like to do it
That's the way we like

As the first verse was over, people recognized the song and started to sing along.

You run around open doors like a gentleman
And tell me, "Girl, every day you're my everything."
'Cause that's the way you like to do it
That's the way you like

 Just a little West Coast, and a bit of sunshine
Hair blowing in the wind, losing track of time
Just you and I, just you and I
Whoa, whoa

No matter how far we go,
I want the whole world to know
I want you bad, and I won't have it any other way
No matter what the people say,
I know that we'll never break
'Cause our love was made, made in the USA
Made in the USA, yeah

 By the time I finished the chorus, I was completely emgrossed in what I was doing. Not caring what anyone may be thinking, just giving it my all, and knowing I did my best, whether I won or now, was the most important part. So I sang.
 

You're always reading my mind like a letter
When I'm cold, you're there like a sweater
'Cause that's the way you like to do it
That's the way you like

I'll never ever let the world get the best of you
Every night we're apart, I'm still next to you
'Cause that's the way I like to do it
That's the way I like

We touch down on the east coast
Dinner on the sky rise,
Winter is the best time for walking on the city lights
You and I, you and I
Whoa, whoa

No matter how far we go,
I want the whole world to know
I want you bad, and I won't have it any other way
No matter what the people say,
I know that we'll never break
'Cause our love was made, made in the USA

'Cause baby I'll bite the bullet
And take the blow for love
Whoa oh oh, our love was made in the USA
Made in the USA, made in the USA

No matter how far we go,
I want the whole world to know
I want you bad, and I won't have it any other way
No matter what the people say,
I know that we'll never break
'Cause our love was made, made in the USA
Made in the USA, yeah

Made in the U.S.
Made in the U.S.
Made in the U.S.A.

Finishing out the last notes of the song, the crowd was going crazy and once I was finished, I got a standing ovation from not only the crowd, but the three judges as well. Holy cow I must've done amazing.

"Well, well, well Ms. Edwards. You certainly blew us away this evening." Simon Cowell said as the crowd quieted and he sat back down.

"Thank you." I said as I walked to the front of the stage to stand before the judges.

"What I liked about your performance tonight is the fact that you were so passionate and into the music. You also have an amazing voice and that's why you've made it to the finals." He said and I smiled, genuinely happy with my performance this evening.

"Thank you so much." I said, not being able to keep the smile off my face.

After the other two judges gave their input, which was along the lines of Simon's, I exited the stage and after a short break, all the contestants were called out onto the stage to announce who the winner of this season's X Factor. And the pressure was on.

"All of you have the potential and talent to be the next big thing in the music industry. But which one of you will be America's pick? Will it be Sarah, Levi, DiDi or Rian?" The announcer said and as every contestant's name was called the crowd grew increasingly in volume.

"But only one of you will be the winner, so without further ado, the winner of Season twelve of The X Factor is..." The announcer paused and opened the envelope, causing everyone to take one big breath of air and held it, until he said one name.

"Rian Edwards!" He announced and the crowd went nuts. I stood there for a couple seconds, totally shocked, but when I recovered I looked over at the three other contestants and squeezed DiDi and Sarah's hands reassuringly and hugged Levi tightly. If I didn't win I would've wanted him too. He was truly an amazing singer and a great friend. We grew really close over the weeks.

"I'm glad you won Ri. Just introduce me to One Direction if you ever meet them okay?" Levi said as we continued to hug for a few more seconds as I agreed. Letting go and stepping back I said:

"Promise to keep in tough?"

"Always." He said and I smiled as I stood before the judges once again as they congratulated me on my win and instructed me to go back to the room I occupied in the house and wait for further instruction there.

So I headed off to my room and started packing my things as I waited. I still couldn't believe I won, but I couldn't be happier at the moment.

About an hour later, I got a letter from Simon saying to go home for a few days and to meet him at his studio in London in a week.

Oh my gosh, I was going to London! And to top it all off, I had won The X Factor! How awesome is that?

 Oh and Simon also lined up an interview in my hometown for tomorrow morning as well and went over what to say and what not to say, but I'm in my hometown, so I'll survive.

So I finished packing and got a couple hours of sleep before I boarded a flight back home tomorrow morning.
