Melanie Masson has said she wants to impress Tulisa on The X Factor 2012 live shows this year.
Speaking to the Daily Record, the 44-year-old performer said she wanted to get good comments from the N-Dubz star to please her son, who is a big fan!
“I want to impress her as it would mean a lot to me and my son would be devastated if she didn’t like me," Melanie said. "It would be so positive to show that you can achieve your dreams and be taken seriously, no matter where you are in your life.”
Meanwhile fellow Overs category hopeful Carolynne Poole has said she can't wait to get onto the stage this Saturday night.
"I’m itching for Saturday night now, I just want to get on there and sing," she said.
Carolynne revealed: "We’ve had a really nice week preparing and we’ve known for three weeks we’ve been through and we haven’t been allowed to tell anyone. Now we’re just dying to get into the studio, get on the stage and get started.”
The country singer, who last year missed out on the live shows at judges' houses, also admitted she couldn't wait to glam up for the millions of viewers.
“I can’t wait to get into the wardrobe, we’ve done a coupe of things this week and me and Melanie have been ‘who’s going to the wardrobe first?’ We are both straight in there right away," she said.
