Janet Devlin

This weekend's X Factor live show was always going to be an emotional one, but unfortunately for Janet Devlin, it's been made even tougher by the sudden death of her grandfather. The Northern Irish singer however has decided to miss the funeral on Saturday night due to the show.

Show bosses have given the teenager permission to miss the show to attend, but the determined youngster insisted to continuing in the competition and dedicating her performance to her 'Granda'

According to heat magazine, the other contestants are rallying around Janet in the house after bosses broke the news to her earlier today.

It goes without saying that with a 'Love & Heartbreak' theme to this week's live shows, Saturday night is going to be an emotional one.
