Cher Lloyd can't wait to watch Tulisa on The X Factor (but isn't sure about Kelly Rowland)

Tulisa Contostavlos

Cher Lloyd has said she's really looking forward to watching new judge Tulisa Contostavlos on The X Factor 2011, saying that the N-Dubz singer has "balls". Speaking ahead of the new X Factor series - which launches later this month - Cher wasn't so sure about Kelly Rowland!

Speaking about the new series of the hit reality show, which Cher finished fourth on last year, the teenager said: "I can't wait! I'm looking forward to watching Tulisa - I've met her once or twice and we get on."

The 'Swagger Jagger' singed added she would've loved to have had Tulisa on the show last year, explaining: "She's got attitude and I like that. She knows what people want. She'll go at them because she's got balls."


Cher was less keen on Tulisa's fellow new judge Kelly Rowland however, saying that the US star was simply "Okay".

"I'm unsure about her," she said. "I loved her when she was in Destiny's Child - they were the best days! I don't really know much about her anymore, but I didn't like her song with David Guetta.

"She's okay, but I'm not sure the public will take to her."

Talking to Digital Spy yesterday, Cher added she had no regrets about taking part in the show and would have applied this year if she hadn't made it last summer.

The 18-year-old told the website: "I wouldn't change anything. I think it's made me a lot stronger as a person.

"I know everything about music now - I'm not living in a dream world. I used to think being a popstar would be glamourous, but it's not. Some days are good and some are bad. I'm happy though because it's got me where I am today."
