Devlin blamed her bumbling on feeling like she was “going to throw up” after eating something that did not sit well with her.
She did manage to finish her second song, Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers, with more success, but not enough to beat competitor Misha B.
Misha B. won over the judges by performing Out Here on My Own from musical Fame. Devlin’s Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol was not enough to save her from getting the axe.
When it came time to vote, judge Kelly Rowland tearfully decided to abstain, meaning both Louis Walsh and Tulisa’s votes for Misha B. became the majority, and Devlin was out.
Gary Barlow later revealed he would have saved Misha B. as well.
Janet, 17, responded to how she felt about the news: “I don’t know. Obviously I’m very confused.
“I can’t wait to walk out of the show and get my music out.”
Sunday’s results show was kicked off by Olly Murs performing his new single Dance With Me Tonight.
Some unusual guests of the fabric variety also made an appearance. The Muppets took the stage to promote their new film, and viewers were graced with Fozzy Bear on double bass, Animal on the drums and Miss Piggy on the piano.
Jessie J also appeared on the show singing her new song Who You Are.
The ITV show was usurped once again in viewing numbers by the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. ITV has lost 3 million viewers since this time last year.
Next week’s Saturday show will have the final four contestants in the semi final: Misha B., girl band Little Mix, Amelia Lily and Marcus Collins.
