Devlin was a contestant on last year's UK X-Factor series. Janet Devlin is a redirect to the contestants page. Like the other contestants', she has not long been out of the post-series tour and has done nothing of great note in her own right. The new article is almost entirely about her activities with X-factor, apart from a few subsequent 'tweets' an announcement she is due to start recording. It is normal practise to redirect to the reality TV series until contestants become independently notable. Sionk (talk) 22:24, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your consideration on the Article. I would appreciate if we could work together so that the article satisfies your concerns. The Article tries to point out that there has been quite considerable moments of worthy notability. There have been a number of newspaper, magazine, television & radio recognition on the said artist. The artist has received an Honorary Civil Award from Omagh County Council for example which has been reliably sourced. I would also appreciate if you could point out where the 'tweets' are. I am new to the process and would like to reiterate that I appreciate your help and feedback. Kind regards, Michelle Gortinsheep (talk) 23:23, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
Believe me, I hope she does well in the future. But with only vague promises of an album she clearly hasn't made her mark outside of X-factor yet. The Music News source confirms she's about to start recording some tracks. This seems to be the only post-X factor news coverage. See WP:NMUSIC for examples of what might make her notable in the future, for example releasing a successful track. I've amended the 'tweet' comment, I thought one of the sources quoted her tweets.

  • Thank you for your considered and swift response. I would put forward that the Artist has made her mark outside of X Factor, I can point you to reliable sources to this fact. If you review the article, a number of the sources are post X Factor and can provide further evidence of this fact. I appreciate that new Articles must be thoroughly scrutinised and totally respect your input and opinion. As I said, I am quite new to the process and would really appreciate any advice and help that you could give. I would still put forward that the Artist deserves a atand alone article. Rest assured I fully take on board your points. Thank you so much for your time and kind consideration. Kind regards, Michelle Gortinsheep (talk) 01:59, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Redirect to List of The X Factor finalists (UK series 8)#Janet Devlin, as it was previously. Devlin is not notable outside of the series as she has not had any singles or albums in any chart. Note that I redirected the page, not realising this AFD was open as the template was removed. I also moved the page to Janet Devlin where it should be, but that does not affect this. I reverted my other actions. –anemoneprojectors– 13:11, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep Thank you for your considered and informative response. I would put forward that the Artist has been notable outside of X Factor. For Example, the Artist is the recipient of an Honorary Award at a Civic Reception from Omagh Council in Northern Ireland. Leaving aside the millions of YouTube Hits (Pre & During X Factor) which may or may not constitute Notability, the Artist has been subject to significant media coverage post X Factor as set out in WP:NMUSIC Part 1 Has been the subject of multiple, non-trivial, published works appearing in sources that are reliable and are independent from the musician or ensemble itself. I would suggest that the Artist satisfies this test . For example, the media coverage post X Factor: The Artist's Gigs post X Factor and recording her own original songs in studio with Eliot Kennedy & his team. In addition, the Artist was offered a Recording Contract within minutes of leaving the show; which is a X Factor record and notable of itself. I fully take on board that the Artist has not yet had a Single or Album in any chart yet....but would suggest that this is not far from happening. If you look at the Preamble to WP:NMUSIC It does state... Please note that the failure to meet any of these criteria does not mean an article must be deleted I hope I have gone some way to explain and hopefully persuade that the Artist is deserving and notable enough to have her own stand alone Artice. I shall now leave it in your capable hands and hope you can agree with what I have tried to get across. Should the consensus reach a decision that the Article be Redirected/Deleted, All I would ask is that the Artice be returned to my Sandbox so that I could maintain it until it is ready for the Editors see fit, should that arise. Finally, I would just like to say thank you very much for your time and expertise. It is very much appreciated.... Kind regards, Michelle Gortinsheep (talk) 00:28, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
