X Factor favourite, Janet Devlin (16), is reportedly having second thoughts and considering pulling out of the show after suffering from an attack of nerves.
Show bosses are afraid that the talented teenager from Tyrone will quit causing them further headaches after Goldie Cheung dramatically walked off the programme.
Janet wowed the X Factor judges throughout the auditions and was seen winning a place at Kelly Rowland's judges houses stage in Miami at the weekend.
However, the singer is now said to be wondering whether or not the show is right for her.
Janet, from Gortin in Tyrone, has already admitted that she is not feeling confident and suffers from nervousness.
“I'm always nervous,'' she said. “I haven't thought about getting through to the live shows, the only thing I can think about is what to tell people when I've been sent back home.”
She also admitted she feels isolated among the other contestants.
“I feel more like part of the furniture and I feel like it is an effort for other contestants to talk to me,” she said.
Show bosses desperately want to avoid the headache of yet another contestant walking -especially Janet, who is the bookies' favourite to win the series.
She stunned the judges and crowd alike with her sweet rendition of Aerosmith's Don't Want To Miss A Thing at bootcamp at the weekend.
Louis Walsh raved about her performance, saying: “She's the one to beat in this competition at the moment.”
Contestant Goldie Cheung walked out on the show this week despite making the live shows.
It was reported that she wouldn't be taking part in the rest of the series because she and her husband were concerned that she would become a nationwide laughing stock.
Her mentor Louis said: “It's a shame Goldie had to pull out but it has given someone else an amazing opportunity.”
Janet will be seen battling to make it into the final 16 at the judge's homes on X Factor next weekend.
The schoolgirl, who never left Northern Ireland on her own before bootcamp, flew to Miami to join fellow Irish beauty, Melanie McCabe, Amelia Lily, Misha Bryan, Holly Repton, Jade Richards, Sarah Watson and Sophie Habibis.
Kelly Rowland will be seen whittling the eight girls down to the final four who will appear on the live shows on X Factor next weekend.
Delirious Janet Devlin fans are making trips to her family home and sending precious cards and gifts in support of the talented X Factor star.
Her proud mum Patricia said she gets at least one visit a day from an excited fan and their letterbox is overflowing with fan mail.
Patricia said: “It's been phenomenal. Since her appearance in the last two shows, we have been inundated with gifts and cards from people showing their support. We got this one lovely letter from a mother-of-ten in Clones, Co. Monaghan, who said her children are just mad about her and they all sit around the TV every night in the hope of hearing her sing on the show.”
Patricia said she was out enjoying a walk last week when two fans in a jeep stopped her on the road and asked for directions to “Janet's House.
“It was a mother and son. The son stared at me and asked was I Janet's mum and I told him I was and they screamed with delight. It was very funny, I just kept telling them they were mad.”
Janet will perform for Destiny's Child star Kelly and for Oscar-winning singer Jennifer Hudson who will help her choose four acts for the live shows.
Patricia said Kelly has really taken Janet under her wing and is helping her with her confidence.
“She has been amazing, Janet is just overwhelmed by the support she is giving her in how to deal with nerves and confidence issues and is really helping her while she is over there,” she revealed.
Patricia hopes her daughter can go all the way: “It would be amazing, we are so thrilled she has even got this far and we couldn't be happier for her. If she gets into the live finals, I think Kelly would need a talk with me too about my nerves,” she joked.
Before Janet jetted off to Miami, she and her brother Aaron insisted on visiting the school where all her dreams of stardom began.
“She visited St Peter's Primary School in Plumbridge last week. Janet adored the school and she didn't hesitate once she was given the invitation," explained Patricia.
Principal Pearse O'Kane said the pupils were honoured by her impromptu visit and said she gave them great advice while she was there.
“She kind of had a small Q&A with the P6 and P7 pupils and she was so gracious and patient with them. She told them to just be themselves and to act natural and to always believe in themselves,” he said.
He continued: “I saw those qualities in Janet when she attended here and she hasn't changed a bit. She spoke of the time she sang in the school leavers assembly and that she missed the school very much. She even applied for work experience here last year and I think that's shows how keen she was about the school."
And the Principal of the rural Co. Tyrone school is in no doubt that she will make it through to the live finals.
"She is definitely going to get through, they would be crazy not to put her through. She is a star in the making and we wish her the very best of luck."
