Singer says she could have gone further if she'd been a 'puppet'
Janet Devlin may have been booted off the X-Factor on Sunday night, but the teen has insisted she could have gone further if she'd been a 'puppet' and done exactly what bosses wanted.
During an appearance on the Lorraine Kelly Show yesterday morning 17-year-old Janet criticised the X-Factor saying it turned her into a karaoke singer.
She told Lorraine: 'To me the sad thing about X Factor — and it's brought me down a lot — is the fact that I've just been covering other people's songs.
'It got to the point where I felt like a karaoke artist every Saturday night.'
Adding that despite being pushed to go in a certain direction, she stood up to X-Factor bosses to avoid being a 'puppet'.
She said: 'From the start of the show I wanted to be myself and I didn't really care, in the sense that I just did what was me. I could have been a puppet and done a lot better but why would I do that?'
The Northern Ireland native lost out to Misha Bafter battling it out in the bottom two on Sunday night.
