X Factor's Janet Devlin tipped as the 'one to beat'

Monday September 26, 2011

After getting through the X Factor bootcamp this weekend, Janet Devlin has been tipped as the "one to beat".

The 16-year-old from Northern Ireland initially stunned the judges with her rendition of Elton John's Your Song at her first audition, becoming a Youtube sensation overnight.

Judge Louis Walsh has predicted big things for Janet saying: "She's the one to beat in this competition at the moment."

Take That star and judge Gary Barlow was also quick to praise the teen saying,

"Every time she sings, it's like I've never heard that song before, and I like it better, I like it better than the original."

She's now through to the judge's houses rounds where she and the other female solo singers in the girls section will be mentored by Kelly Rowland.

The public will have to wait until the weekend to find out if Janet has got through to the live shows.
