Rochester’s Jennel Garcia is one step closer to seeing her dreams of becoming a singer come true. Garcia auditioned for the popular Fox TV show ‘The X-Factor” over the summer.
She performed in regional auditions in Providence before advancing to the show’s Boot Camp in Los Angeles shortly after.
Garcia earned a coveted spot while in Boot Camp and advanced to performing in Show Judge / Pop Icon Demi Lovato’s house in Los Angeles, where the top 4 finalists from the young adult category will advance to the live shows in Los Angeles. Garcia earned one of the live show spots on last night’s episode.
The winner of the live shows will win a $5 million recording contract among other fabulous prizes.
Also joining Garcia in the young adult category is Rochester native Jillian Jensen. Jensen has yet to learn her fate as the episode was interrupted by a playoff baseball game last night halfway through the show. The episode will re-air in its entirety next Tuesday, October 23 at 8:00 pm on Fox.
Good luck to both Jillian and Jennel!
