Janet shows off new do after wowing X Factor's Simon

Dublin X Factor hopeful Janet Grogan has unveiled a sexy new look after hitting all the right notes with audiences on Sunday night.

The 26-year-old was seen bringing the house down at Wembley Arena at the weekend after winning over tough-talking judge Simon Cowell.

And this week saw her unveiling her longer locks after suddenly finding herself the centre of attention.

The brunette beauty from Kingswood in Tallaght brought the house down with U2's I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.

But speaking this week, the Katy Perry-lookalike revealed how there was an unfortunate reason for her distinctive vocals.

"I was born with the amniotic sack over my head and I swallowed some of the fluid which burned my vocal cords so I've always had this deep, raspy voice," she said.

She also revealed how she thought she had blown her second audition. "Halfway through the song, I was just concentrating on the crowd," she said.

"I thought I had completely messed it up. Because the judges are very stony-faced. And I thought, 'Oh no, I've lost them', so I was just concentrating on the crowd. But then when I finished, and Mel B stood up, I thought: 'Oh thank God'."

During her first audition, media mogul Simon Cowell openly flirted with her, telling her she had "beautiful eyes".
