Janet Devlin holds on to X Factor place

There was joy for schoolgirl Janet Devlin last night as she managed to survive another week on 'The X Factor'.
The result followed the 17-year-old Co Tyrone native's performance of Queen's 'Somebody to Love' on Saturday, which managed to win over the audience -- if not the judges.
Gary Barlow had criticised the performance saying that he was "starting to lose interest" in the teenager as a singer.
He said that her down-tempo rendition of the rock classic was "boring".
Devlin had also spent two days straight in bed last week after criticism from the judges led to a stress-related headache.
However, despite the turmoil, the singer was voted straight through to next week's programme on the results show yesterday.
There was mounting speculation over the weekend that Devlin had fallen out with her mentor, Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland.
Pop diva Lady Gaga was the show's special guest, performing 'Marry the Night'.
