X Factor hopeful Janet Devlin: From girl-next-door to pop princess

By Amanda Poole

When X Factor front-runner Janet Devlin first appeared on our screens she looked quirky, cool and natural.

Now the talented teenager has been transformed into a slick pop princess by an army of stylists working for the ITV talent juggernaut.

Fans of the hit show have been wowed by Janet’s new, edgier image. She seemed to put on both years and maturity overnight as the grooming process took hold.

Her beautiful curly blonde hair has been dyed copper, prompting some ‘Team Devlin’ supporters to tell the pretty teenager to make sure she maintains her own identity and image.

But Janet is adamant that she is not letting those around her take control of her image entirely.

The 16-year-old from Gortin told her 87,000 Twitter followers, she affectionately calls ‘Devlinators’, that she had always wanted red tresses.

Humble Janet is modest during her interaction with adoring fans and told them that the clothes she is wearing on the show are her own — or at least her choice.

Janet is emerging as a style icon for young girls across the UK and Ireland, who will undoubtedly be tuning in tomorrow night to catch her latest look.
