Janet Devlin

We first saw Janet on tv when she auditioned for the X-factor at the Birmingham's LG Arena on the 20th August 2011. She had flown all the way from the village of Gortin, just North of Omagh, in Northern Ireland to be heard and was it worth it? Silly question really!

"i'm a big big fan of janet devlin. personally i don't think they should of changed the way she looked at all, she is naturally beautiful & her voice is incredible. I'm going on xfactor myself, next year and i look up to janet as an inspiration to be able to wear what you want, sing what you want, all she cares about is the music and that's why janet devlin should win the xfactor 2011."

"Hi Janet, You have a beautiful unusual voice. I think you should go back to singing the songs you have done on You tube before such as 'Pack up your troubles' (when you looked really happy) and 'Someone like you' they really do make the most of your unusual voice. Keep smiling."

November 23, 2011 @ 5:06pm

"Janet, you have a really lovely voice and a really lovely personality. When people criticize you it just makes the people who support you get behind you more. You melt people's hearts and you are beautiful in every way. Always believe in yourself no matter what"

November 23, 2011 @ 2:24pm

"Absolutely love you Janet; your voice is stunning and so beautiful. You have to win the x factor! You are the most talented singer the show has ever had and the most genuine lovely person. Go for it Janet! All your fans are right behind you and we all know you can do it. All the best for saturdays show; will be voting like crazy as usual!"

"It seems like an eternity between great female non-operatic singers emerging - Dolly Parton....Kate Bush......Shania Twain and now Janet. Many will try to mold, manipulate, and take advantage. Be true to that quiet voice inside of you Janet, listen to what others say, but reject everything that offends your sensibilities. By being genuinely true to yourself you will stay grounded, be at one with the universe when madness surrounds, and embrace the magic of which only visionaries catch a fleeting glance. Walk into and enjoy your destiny. All will be well. "

"Janet, You are why I watch The X Factor! Everyone else just might as well be an advertisement break, for you are the only true content in the show I actually look forward to hearing! The funny thing is that I am now starting to listen to songs, and ask myself 'What would this sound like if Janet put her spin on it?' Just heard 'O Holy Night' and just the thought of you making this song your own gave me chills! I can’t wait to hold a CD with your name on it in my hands!!! Good Luck & God Bless! "

"Your a little colleen who makes me fill up every time I hear you sing. At 17 it will be hard for you to be away from home surrounded by strangers but always remember all your northern irish fans are behind you. As Rebecca says 'Never change you you are, you are unique' a beautiful person with a beautiful voice. Be strong little one"

November 20, 2011 @ 9:45pm

"Janet, you are one of my top favorite's on the x factor 2011! no matter what people say your deffo a star! you don't have to win to be a star babe you are already one! hold your head up high and keep doing well! lots of love xxxx"

"Janet it must be really hard to see a clear path when all this conflicting advice is thrown at you particularly at 17.To make things simple those who love you probably do so because of your unique voice,lovely accent and engaging personality(not to mention looks) and that combination is unique to you.In other words your fans are very loyal and will stick with you,buy your work and follow your career, so in the long term the future is as bright as your hair!Best of luck for saturday but you don,t really need it."

"You are unique, with the most amazing voice and the ex- factor cannot handle someone who REALLY has talent. If you do leave on Saturday don't be upset, be glad your out of that nasty environment. You don't have to win to be given a record deal. The public love you, and I'm really looking forward to getting your first CD!"

November 16, 2011 @ 9:12pm

"Hey Janet! I'm from Belgium so I can't watch you on television. That's why I check You tube every week: to hear your voice that gives me chills every time I hear it. I would love to hear you sing Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. I'm sure that it would take my breath away. You are an amazing artist! Every time you sing, it's as if it's the first time I hear that song. Your voice is the voice of an angel"

November 16, 2011 @ 7:54pm

"Janet I think the way the judges are with you is so unfair. Don't listen to them, I think they are all behaving like spoiled brats. Go back to singing the songs your way, You have the most beautiful and original voice. Keep your chin up!!! I look forward to buying your first album!!"

November 15, 2011 @ 7:19pm

"Janet- you are truly inspirational, and I admire you so much. I think you're doing an amazing job by being an individual and not conforming to stereotypes, which serves as a good role model to all singers and the younger generation today. I am so proud of you, and have been supporting and voting for you ever since your first audition. Don't give up on your dreams- you have talent. I also write poetry myself, and I think it's brilliant the way you're handling things. Ignore the criticisms, and hold your head high. You have many people behind you. Janet Devlin to win! Love Catherine x "

"Janet, i think you have a very unique voice and from the beginning i have said that you are a winner, and i still think this, no matter what others say. You are very beautiful, and so is your smile, so please could you smile a bit more. You look so frightened some times. You remind me of a sinead O'Connor. pure class x"

November 14, 2011 @ 1:09pm

"Hi Janet Take a listen to the Cranberries and Dolores O'Riorden. Sing 'Dreams' and you will bring the house down. Additionally there are other songs like 'You Don't have to be a baby to cry' I think you are being given the wrong songs for your voice. Go back into the past and you will find your future. Good luck Young Lady you have a lovely personality and voice."

November 13, 2011 @ 11:11pm

"Janet, you have a beautiful, clear tone and a celtic lilt to your voice. I don't think that Kelly has the slightest idea how to develop you. What you need is better song choices and to concentrate on your roots. Louis has recognized your unique tone and quality, and he knows you're the 'real deal' - perhaps you should ask him for advice now that he's a neutral judge."

November 13, 2011 @ 12:02am

"Janet your voice is amazing and I don't like Queen as a rule but your version tonight was raw, beautiful, and I think your finest hour. Take no head of Gary - as he said tactical voting. Glad Dermott came to your defense. I have voted for you not once but three times this week. I await your album. Could I be bold and suggest a song for you to check out - you would cover it beautifully - charlene sings it - it's on the twinnings tea advert."

"To the young lassie on that flashy music show - you have a gift that only people dream of. Your eyes shine like diamonds when you sing and the emotion in your voice is like nothing I have ever experienced on this earth...you are a beautiful Rainbow Child. This is your chance, make sure you grasp it tightly for it is there for the taking sweet girl!"

November 12, 2011 @ 9:45pm

"OMG!! I absolutely ♥ Janet! Her voice is sweet whether she's singing or just talking,this girl will go far.She doesn't have a strong voice but sometimes that's good cause songs need that shy and quiet,fragile voice.You could hear a pin drop when she sings!!Janet is already a star,she was born to sing man! She has the voice!Nobody can beat that voice, it's so unique to have a voice like hers. It always has the little bit of high pitched touch to it when she sings. AMAZING SERIOUSLY IT'S UNIQUE, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET HER WIN!!"

November 12, 2011 @ 9:35pm

"You are the real recording artist of this show so winning it or not winning it does not matter you have your future secured and at 16/17 years of age it must be a fantastic feeling to know that you have cracked it and no need to listen to G. Barlow that's such an idiotic thing to say that you are predictable, silly man maybe we should send him home!!! "

November 11, 2011 @ 2:30pm

"Please Janet don't let them change you anymore- get back your own hair colour and your own style you have the most amazing face/eyes as well as your voice. Please BELIEVE in yourself I only watch the XFactor because of you and you make this OAP very happy each time you sing. Love you to bits."

"i'm not a big janet fan but i hate corporate manipulation of competitions. be aware that the twist this week is to get amelia lily in to replace janet as the favorite. it's also why janet has been diised the last 2 weeks. it's because they can't control her. this is kelly's quote from the press conference: 'It's plain to see why you should vote for her. Great voice, great personality, great understanding of being a TEAM PLAYER when it comes to being an artist. She's a strong, strong contender.' don't let this happen janet fans! don't let the puppetmasters win! make sure you multi vote for janet every week to make sure it's a peoples champion and not a corporate champion! pass this on to all the fans to mobilise them to action."

November 10, 2011 @ 1:10pm

"Hi Janet, stick more to Adele/Fix U-type songs: recent song choices don't show the style people want to hear and love you for. if you have to go right outside your comfort zone like last week you have 2 get into the original style of the song more give it some wellie and incorporate some cool dance moves! x"
