Demi Lovato & Simon Cowell Cry During Jillian Jensen's "X-Factor" Performance
Jillian Jensen, a 19-year-old singer from Massachusetts approached the stage and explained her admiration for Lovato. “I’m kind of a big fan of yours,” Jensen said. Jensen is the same age as Lovato and share similar tattoos that read, stay strong. “I was also bullied a lot. For a long time I didn’t know how to deal with it,” Jensen shared before her audition. “I would cry myself to sleep every night.”
As soon as Jensen began to sing, her performance grabbed the attention of all four judges with Simon Cowell getting teary-eyed for the first time on TV. “The bullies that bullied us…They’re at home watching us on TV,” Lovato declared before hugging Jensen onstage through tears.
