X FACTOR star Janet Devlin couldn’t hide her joy at getting a surprise snap with Hollywood heartthrob Liam Hemsworth after her gig.
The singer, who is in Australia to support actor Russell Crowe on his Indoor Garden Party tour, had no idea Liam was in the audience as she performed at a venue in Byron Bay.
She posed for a cosy selfie with the younger brother of Marvel superstar Chris Hemsworth after the show and admitted she was glad she didn’t know he was there beforehand.
Sharing the snap on Instagram, she wrote: “Very glad no one told me @liamhemsworth was in the audience. My already nervous self would’ve been even more of a wreck! Apparently he enjoyed the songs! Or he’s just a very polite man haha.”
Her viewers couldn’t believe the chance meeting, though the reaction was mixed.
Liam’s ex Miley Cyrus’s recent mega hit Flowers shone a spotlight on his alleged infidelities while they were together.
And it led some of Janet’s fans to take aim at him.
One said: “Remember, you don’t need any of his flowers.”
Another posted: “But but but Miley.”
Others thought they’d make a good couple.
“Holy s**t that’s amazing!! Also, you guys look hella cute together,” said one.
In total, Janet will perform 18 shows with Gladiator star Russell including a show at the Sydney Opera House.
She rose to fame on the X Factor in 2011 as a shy young singer, who sang a mesmerising version of Your Song.
These days Janet is a far cry from the barefoot 16-year-old with curly red hair.
The 28-year-old was handpicked Russell Crowe to help open his concerts.
Janet told her followers that they had met through Ed Sheeran and the rest is history.
She explained: “There are many ways to experience Australia for the first time but I’m pretty sure this was the best way by far.
“Thank you @russellcrowe for inviting me to open your shows and for opening my eyes to such a beautiful country with such wonderful people!
“Not to mention your generosity! What a whirlwind of an experience.
“Yes, I had to get a photo because I wont even believe it myself when I wake up tomorrow. “
The singer added: “(Also, thank you to @teddysphotos for accidentally making this happen! Haha).”
In the ten years since appearing on X Factor, Janet has not just undergone a physical transformation going from redhead to blonde, but has also been on a journey in herself.
She has become a mental health advocate and TikTok favourite thanks to her no-holds-barred recordings.
