Rochester native Jennel Garcia’s journey on FOX’s hit TV show “The X-Factor” has come to an end.
Garcia was voted off the show Thursday night when the judges decided to save Paige Thomas instead of her. Lyric 145, a hip-hop group earned the least amount of votes and were automatically sent home.
Thomas and Garcia received the next fewest votes and had to sing for survival. The judges chose to save Thomas.
This week was Diva Week on the show, and Garcia sang Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.”
Garcia auditioned for the show over the summer in Providence. Since then, she has been living in LA competing on the show.
The winner of the contest will win a $5 million recording contract. “The X-Factor” airs Wednesday and Thursday nights on FOX at 8:00 pm.
