SPOILER ALERT: Jason Brock was eliminated from The X Factor last night.

The contestant lost a sing-off with CeCe Frey for the final spot in the Top 12, as the judges were split on who to save, but America made its voice known.

Jason Brock -

After receiving the bad news, Brock spoke to reporters and said he wasn’t sure why he got the boot… but wondered if his flamboyant style played a role.

"I think that being gay is a wild card in itself," he said. "When you’re gay, some people still aren’t okay with you being gay. So there are actually people in the country – I don’t know how many – who think it’s actually wrong. So I wouldn’t doubt it if that does hurt in a way."

 

Does he have any regrets? Nope.

"I wanted people to know me as a gay person. A connection with the community that I feel is important."

Does he feel a sense of relief? Yes.

"I don’t have to try to win anymore. It’s so hard to try and win a competition like this, but I am proud that I made it this far."

Did you agree with Brock’s elimination?
