X Factor 2016: Janet Grogan sings Ariana Grande at the six chair challenge

Janet Grogan x factor 2016

Janet Grogan took a knock in tonight's six chair challenge on The X Factor 2016 but still got though.

Earlier this month we saw Janet return to storm the auditions as Simon Cowell admitted he was wrong to send her home from The X Factor back in 2014.

Janet, a 28 year-old lifeguard from Ireland, got as far as Simon’s Six Chair Challenge two years ago in the Overs category.

Following the show airing, Simon admitted in a tweet at the time: "I should have kept Janet. My mistake."

In tonight's show, Janet said: "I was here two years ago, I came back to The X Factor because of Simon's tweet because he said it was a mistake.

"It's really scary that I'm back where I was, I think I'm better but if I don't get past this time, it would absolutely destroy me."

After singing Ariana Grande's One Last Time, the judges weren't instantly convinced.

Louis Walsh said: "I've got to be honest, I love your voice, I didn't love the song and song choice is so important."

Janet replied: "I just wanted to try something else."

With Sharon Osbourne in the driving seat, Simon Cowell encouraged her: "I think that girl, potentially is incredible."

While it took Sharon a bit of time to decide, she did eventually give Janet a seat through to judges' houses. WOO FOR JANET!

The X Factor 2016 airs Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
