X Factor contestant Janet Devlin has responded to recent claims that she would cover a Nirvana track on the show.

As previously reported on Gigwise, the Hole singer tweeted Simon Cowell with the idea that the singer should cover one of her late husband's tracks on the show.

She posted: "@SimonCowell you want some Nirvana songs? @JanetJealousy is from same town as Kurt? I have the perfect idea for that, call me babe."

However the teenager has said she felt it inappropriate to perform a Nirvana cover after the band's fans slammed Courtney Love's decision.

[To get a tweet from Courtney] was amazing," she told Digital Spy. "I am going to confess though, I would never sing a Nirvana song on this show. I wouldn't have wanted Kurt Cobain to be turning in his grave.

"You have to understand I respect him so much, so I wouldn't do that."
