Beyonce Knowles has backed 16-year-old Janet Devlin to win this year's 'X Factor'

Beyonce Knowles has backed Janet Devlin to win 'The X Factor'.

The 30-year-old singer is convinced one of the acts in her former Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland's category will scoop the crown in this year's contest, and believes the Irish teenager has what it takes to win over the audience.

She said: "For sure I think Kelly will win, not just because she is my sister but because I really do think she has the strongest acts.

"The girl group Rhythmix are very current and the guys all have good voices, but I see the winner coming from Kelly's group.

"It's the public voting for it, and you can't second guess who the public might like. These shows are as much about personality and winning over the public as they are performance and vocals. Janet is very sweet, I can see the public becoming very endeared towards her and picking up the phone."

As well as being a fan of Janet, Beyonce is also predicting big things from Misha B.

She added in an interview with new! magazine: "There is something very endearing about Janet, but there is something very special about Misha and from what I have heard from Kelly she is just going to get better and better."
