Eliminated Jennel Garcia says Demi turned her into something she wasn't

After Jennel’s shocking elimination from ‘The X Factor’, she vowed that it’s ‘time for me to show the world who I really am.’ Distraught, she admitted she felt Demi turned her into something she wasn’t and audiences didn’t like it. 

Jennel Garcia became the latest victim to get the ax from The X Factor, as the judges chose to save Paige Thomas instead of her after a dramatic sing off. Jennel, who has vowed to pursue her dream of becoming a star, says that she now wants to shake off the image that she was given by her mentor Demi Lovato, as she feels she “was letting Demi do what she wanted. “The makeup; the hair; the heels; that wasn’t necessarily me and I was letting Demi do what she wanted, and I was going to listen to her no matter what because she’s my mentor and I trust her.”

Jennel also regrets not pushing Demi more on the song choice of “Proud Mary,” which she believes is the reason why she was went home. “I really put up a fight about singing ‘Proud Mary’ because the other song we were working on was ‘You Oughta Know’ by Alanis Morissette, which is way more me than ‘Proud Mary,’ but everyone disagreed and said ‘Proud Mary’ was the one. Clearly it was not, so I was right. I should’ve stuck up for myself more. I should have given them a piece of my mind, much more than I did, but I didn’t because I wanted to be good and cooperative.”


Well she didn't lie.... I'm going to miss her.

I could see someone like Kelly Clarkson. It seems like something she wouldn't mind trying out (granted I know nothing about her) and since she's been there, it would be a great fit.

She's kind of boring on that low rated singing show Duets that I assume is cancelled now
