X Factor 2011: Gary Barlow brands Janet Devlin "predictable"

Janet Devlin

X Factor favourite Janet Devlin had a bit of luke warm reception from the judges this evening, with Take That star Gary Barlow branding the teenager "predictable," but added: "In a good way." We're not too sure...

Following her performance of Every Breath You Take, Louis said: "Janet, that was a big task and we've all heard that song and I loved your interpretation and I found it haunting... you're real. In the words of Kelly Rowland, 'You got it all going on babe.'"

Tulisa added: "Janet... I feel like there's something different about you... you look like you mean business! It's like you’re saying 'I am a contender', I love that! Vocally... it wasn't the strongest performance you've had but I loved your energy."

Gary confessed: "Janet well done, another good performance... but let me share one little worry... when I know you're coming on the stage I know what to expect. You're predicable... in a good way, but I worry if the audience will stick with you until the end."

Meanwhile guest judge Alexandra Burke, standing in for an ill Kelly Rowland, added: "All I want to do is cuddle you and take you home! You mean every word you sing!"

Speaking to host Dermot O'Leary, Janet teased: "If I get through next week I have a little trick up by sleeve."
