Listen to X Factor 2011 contestant Janet Devlin's self-penned song!

Janet DevlinMany X Factor fans fell in love with Irish teenager Janet Devlin's enchanting voice last year on the ITV1 talent show!

Alas despite topping the votes multiple times, the 17-year-old singer failed to win, coming 5th after being eliminated in the quarter-final. However, she has been busy recording with Eliot Kennedy and the singer-songwriter recently began performing a song she wrote herself, called 'Crown Of Thorns' at gigs.

You can check it out for yourself but we're really impressed by this offering and if the rest of her debut album is half as good as this, we're sure she'll have a lengthy career ahead of her. According to fans, Janet is hoping to debut her first single in September followed by her album and a tour of the UK in October.

Check out the song below and see for yourself:

    Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. I search for news of Janet whenever and wherever I can. I am so looking forward to Janet's music coming out.

    Janet Devlin's performance at the East of England Festival was amazing. She performed songs from X Factor and her Youtube Channel: Kiss Me, Fix You, Pack Up, Sweet Child O Mine and Your Song. But for me, her own original written track, "Crown of Thorns" was the highlight. The preview performance was stunning: beautiful lyrics and performed with that usual scintillating voice. Remember the name Janet Devlin as this wonderful Artist is going to be around in the music arena for a very long time to come. What a brilliant young star she is. Bring on the Single and Album. Soon :)

  • I won’t like it :(

    OMG I love it :D

    What an amazing voice! And the lyrics are so raw and emotive. Simply Sensational.

    Crown of Thorns has such a refreshing originality to it. So few artists come up to this standard these days that I have to keep reminding myself that Janet is still only 17 and at the start of her career.
    Very impressed. The album will be one to savour :)
