X Factor 2016: Janet Grogan is BACK and hoping to prove Simon Cowell wrong

X Factor 2016 spoilers

Janet Grogan makes a comeback to The X Factor UK this weekend, surprising Simon Cowell.

The Irish performer previously appeared in the Overs back in 2014 and made it as far the six chair challenge in what was then Simon Cowell's category.

Janet, who impressed with a performance of I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For at the arena auditions, originally won a spot in judges' houses but found herself replaced in the brutal stage of the competition.

Simon's decision caused quite a bit of flack at the time and he confessed afterwards on Twitter: "I should have kept Janet. My mistake."

While Janet didn't return last year she has now picked up the courage to have another go.

"Oh my God, Janet!" reacts Simon as she walks into the judges' audition room this weekend.

"The tweet is why I'm here," Janet says of Simon's words online following her previous appearance on the show.

Singing again for the judges, Janet showcases her own take on Zayn Malik’s Pillowtalk.

You can watch a preview of Janet's performance in the preview clip and be sure to tune in to The X Factor this weekend to see if she gets through!

Another of the hopefuls singing this week is Louis Tomlinson lookalike Matt Terry, who surprises the judges with his performance.

23-year-old Matt reveals to the judges how he was a waiter but had to quit his job after a nasty break up.

Nicole quips: "Well I hope you don't suck 'cause I like you already."

The X Factor 2016 auditions air Saturday night from 8:15PM and return Sunday at 8PM.

And don't forget all new Xtra Factor LIVE which airs straight after on ITV2, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson.
