Sick youngsters at Cornwall's Children's Hospice will benefit from the new X Factor single.
It is after Ben Haenow pulled off a surprise win over Fleur on Sunday night.
He is set to rake in something like £6m thanks to the recording contract and other deals.
The ex-van driver says he will get married to his long-time girlfriend - after releasing his first single Something I Need.
The money is going to Together for Short Lives - which supports little Harbour at Porthpean.
Mel B returned to the X Factor after missing the first part of the final on Saturday because of a mystery illness.
The former Spice Girl returned to the panel of judges after being released from hospital.
She thanked the nurses and doctors who had treated her, saying: "I really missed being here but thanks to all the doctors and nurses who took care of me and got me here tonight."
When asked by Dermot O'Leary, the show's host, if she was feeling better, Mel said: "Yes -ish."
Her act, Italian Andrea Faustini, was eliminated during Saturday night's show, leaving Ben Haenow and Fleur East to fight it out to be crowned the winner.
It was Haenow who eventually triumphed.
After the result was revealed, he said: "I don't believe it. I don't believe it. Thank you so much.
"My dream has come true. You can't imagine you are going to get to this point in the competition."
An X Factor spokesman said earlier: "After being discharged from hospital and following medical advice, Mel has been deemed well enough to do the show.
"We're delighted to have her back on the panel."
Mel B was replaced on Saturday by former judge Tulisa Contostavlos.
Tulisa tweeted: "I had a brilliant time on the show last night and I'm so pleased Mel B is well and back for the final show! Have a good one babe."6:14am 15th December 2014
