Janet Devlin's audition on X Factor 2011

So X Factor 2011 has just started and I'm usually one of those viewers who just watch one or two audition episodes and then forget about the whole thing until the semi-finals. This year seems even more like a miss with new judges Kelly Rowland, Gary Barlow and Tulisa from N-Dubz, but I was pleasantly surprised at how likeable Kelly and Gary were. He's like a less-mean, younger, better looking Simon with a nicer smile. It's obvious he's meant to be the mean one and that's the character the producers are trying to edit.

Anyway, I'm not going to be blogging about the X Factor week by week- hell no- but the shining star of this week's episode, Janet Devlin, truly blew me away with her audition, singing Elton John's 'Your Song'.

From Northern Island, shy Janet has a really sweet voice and it reminds me of Roxanne Emery so I'm rooting for her to win the show. I don't really need to watch the other auditions- she's going to be my favourite.
Just found out she has a Youtube Channel where she does song covers- her version of Adele's Someone like You is pretty good! She'll definitely get a record deal even if she doesn't win the show- the next Youtube -> Singer sensation!

Check through below to see her audition (plays automatically)...


  1. She reminded me of Diana Vickers a little bit

  2. She was amazing! Reminded me of Ellie Goulding with her voice...interesting, as Ellie Goulding also released a version of Elton's 'Your Song', and I thought it was HER version rather than Elton's which Janet was singing... Hope that makes sense :/ all in all I'm just trying to say I liked her! I like the new judges too, eespecially the feistiness of Tulisa and Kelly :)
