'X Factor's' Jennel Garcia Weighs in on Simon Cowell-Demi Lovato Spat: 'I Was Definitely Annoyed' (VIDEO)
It has been quite a ride for Jennel Garcia on FOX’s The X Factor. Viewers watched as she flirted her way through auditions and boot camp, then they met a much sleeker rocker girl during the live performance shows.
Note: Spoilers if you haven’t watched Thursday’s elimination episode.
But, her journey of change came to an end on Thursday’s elimination show when it was revealed she was in the bottom three and then went head-to-head with teammate Paige Thomas.
“Of course, I’m feeling down, because I don’t want to leave,” Garcia tells Celebuzz after the show. “But, I’m very proud of myself, so I’m OK.”
Hip-hop group Lyric145 was instantly booted while Garcia and Thomas were left to duke it out in a sing-off.Simon Cowell refused to say his decision – after Britney Spears and L.A. Reid voted to eliminate Garcia – until Demi Lovato revealed her pick first. Despite host Mario Lopez’s attempts to get Simon to go ahead, they finally moved on to Lovato. And, she ended up throwing her elimination vote to Thomas.
“I was definitely annoyed,” Garcia told us of the spat. “I just wanted to get it over with, because it was painful… He’s just being Simon.”
The Rochester, Mass. resident told us she’s not sure about what’s next for her career, but tweeted later Thursday night, “So if I made my own album would yall buy it?”
