X Factor is starting to hot up as it enters the final stages of the show, and boyband Westlife have tipped fellow Irishman Janet Devlin to win.Speaking exclusively to Yahoo! omg! Shane told us: "Janet reminds me of Dolores O'Riordan from The Cranberries. She's unique and different and of everybody she has the voice to sell records."
Speaking on the last ever day of UK press for the band , who recently announced they are to split, Shane added that he wasn't that impressed with this year's talent. He said: "The contestants aren't as good as last year. There's no One Direction, no Matt Cardle. There needs to be one or two massive stars but this year people are watching more for the judges' banter."
Speaking about what makes an X Factor star successful after the show, Shane told us he believes it was all about the song choices. "With Janet it will all come down to the songs. Leona Lewis had a proper worldwide single."
Janet appears to have been lined up for the final by show bosses, as Chris Martin's band have apparently been booked to perform one of the three duets during the grand final, suggesting show bosses are confident Janet will make it to the final three.
