X Factor contestant Janet Grogan has told how her family were heartbroken after watching her lose out on a place at the judges' houses.

The Tallaght hopeful was in the line-up to be selected by Simon Cowell's house, but he made a last-minute decision to drop her.

"My mam and dad were so upset," said Janet. "You could see the devastation in my face when I was in the chair, and that was really hard for them to watch.

"My mam was bawling her eyes out - they felt they had let me down after not being there. Every contestant had family there, but it was too last-minute for my parents, so I was on my own."

When the episode aired on Saturday, Cowell said he was wrong. "I should have kept Janet. My mistake," he said.

Asked if she would consider returning next year, Janet (26) said: "It's too fresh to answer that."
