Eliminated X-Factor contestant Jennel Garcia revealed to Hollywood Life: ‘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.
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. My voice is going to be heard. I’m going to fight for what I’ve worked for my whole life.’
