AGE: 16
MENTOR: Kelly Rowland

Janet Devlin was a contestant on X Factor 2011. She was voted off in week eight.

Janet started singing when her grandma encouraged her to have lessons. She is very passionate about music and it means everything to her and gives her a purpose. She has been writing poems and songs since she was seven-years-old. Janet says she finds singing much more natural than talking.

How does Janet feel about making it through to the live shows? ‘I’m so excited, I actually can’t believe it. I can’t express how happy I am. This is the start of being taken seriously as a musician. I’m really glad that Kelly believed in me and that she saw something that I didn’t. I know that I can come out of myself now, I hope I can.’

Janet Devlin’s Song Choices:
Week one: Coldplay – Fix You
Week two: Elvis Presley – I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You
Week three: Guns N’ Roses – Sweet Child O’ Mine
Week four: The Police – Every Breath You Take
Week five: Jackson 5 – I Want You Back
Week six: Queen – Somebody To Love
Week seven: Sixpence None the Richer – Kiss Me
Week eight: Hanson – MMMbop and Red Hot Chilli Peppers – Under The Bridge

Survival song:
Week eight: Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

Janet was voted off in week eight after finishing in the bottom two with Misha. Louis and Tulisa voted to send home Janet, while her mentor Kelly refused to vote. This meant Janet was voted off with a majority vote.
