DEMI LOVATO was moved to tears by a bullying victim’s performance on “The X Factor.”
When Demi Lovato started her first day as a judge on “The X Factor,” she probably never imagined finding someone who shared her troubled past.
As many of you know, the former Disney star was a bully victim as a kid and when contestant Jillian Jensen—who also revealed she had a similar “Stay Strong” motivational tattoo as the pop star—gave a very haunting performance that expressed her own pain, Demi couldn’t help but tear up.
In addition to that, Demi went on stage to comfort and hug Jensen. She told her:
“It’s okay. I know exactly what you’re going through. But I made it through it, and I know you can.”
Oh, and though Jensen was extremely emotional throughout the song, she had pretty awesome vocals… hence all four judges’ “yes.”
