Cheryl who? Tulisa turns on the glamour as she says: I've earned my place on the panel

New X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos showed no signs of being under stress as she walked the red carpet at last night's Glamour Awards. The 22-year-old songstress, dressed in a bright pink dress for the awards ceremony told Heat magazine however: "I feel pressure."

The N-Dubz star was hired to replace Cheryl Cole on the panel this year and joins fellow new judges Gary Barlow and Kelly Rowland.

Despite already having taken part in two audition shows for the programme, Tulisa confessed to still being nervous about her new role - and who can blame her? The way Simon Cowell's going she coud off the panel tomorrow!

"I’ve had mixed emotions this week. I feel pressure," Tulisa admits, but the confident singer reckons she deserves her spot as a judge on the show.

"I’m involved in the writing, producing and singing, so it’s not like I’ve had a couple of hits and that’s it," she says. "I feel like I’ve earned my spot on the judging panel."

She continued: "I don’t feel like I’m stepping into anyone’s shoes because I could never be Cheryl or Dannii.

"Everything about the show is different this year, so we want to blow people out of the water with fireworks."

Tulisa will be back on The X Factor this Sunday when auditions move to Manchester for three days.
