Editor's Viewpoint: Janet can reach top

Tyrone's Janet Devlin is a star in the making. The X Factor has given her the national platform to showcase her voice and now she needs to find a medium for expressing her unique musical talents.

For such a young girl she was a great ambassador for the province and handled all the media hype with astonishing level-headedness and maturity.

Those are attributes she will continue to need in one of the most cut-throat professions in the world but if she can find - or write - the right songs for her ethereal singing style she can reach the very top. X Factor, in the meantime, will continue to churn out its manufactured pop which is no sooner heard than forgotten.
