Tulisa has admitted that the prospect of performing on The X factor terrifies her. She has spoken out about singing on the show after revealing that it could be a possibility.
Not just a judge
The Young singer has been a judge on the show since last year, when Simon Cowell selected her to join the panel. She strolled to fame in the same year as her debut, with girl group Little Mix, however she’s never taken the stage herself to sing.
Her album comes out later this year and she realises that a performance could take place.
"I think it's very possible. The third single will be out around that time."
What a perfect opportunity Tula.
The shoe’s on the other foot
Rather than being elated about a possible performance however, the former N Dubz member is scared about getting up on that stage.
"It absolutely terrifies me. It really does. But there's something about this next single that feels like it's meant to be. It gives me a feeling that everything will be okay. It's the end of the year, it's a ballad, it's very Christmassy."
That’s alright then. Everyone will be feeling so festive anyway.
This year’s X Factor has been tipped as having some of the best singers the competition has ever seen and with the possibility of singing alongside acts such as Lucy Spraggan and Ella Henderson, no wonder she’s got the jitters. Speaking about the talent this year, she said, “I really feel like we've uncovered some incredible people this year”.
No pressure then.
She’s not the first...
The 24-year-old won’t be the first judge to perform on the talent show. Cheryl Cole sang Promise This and Fight For This Love on the show, but was criticised for miming parts of the performances.
Let’s just hope she doesn’t suffer the same fate as Jessie J however, whose microphone broke as she went to sing live on The Voice.
You’ll be fine Tulisa, just don’t mime and check your mic.
