Tulisa (X Factor 2012)

X Factor host Dermot O'Leary has backed Tulisa, saying she's the star of the show!

The hunky TV presenter admitted to the Daily Star Sunday today that the N-Dubz star was his favourite judge.

He told the tabloid: “Tulisa is the heart and soul of the show. There is something about her – she cares so much and no one can tell her what to do.

“It’s what I love about her and that’s what’s brilliant. She is so pure.”

Last night saw Dermot's dancing introductions to the live shows return, with his biggest routine yet.

Celebrating this weekend's club classics theme, "Dermot" showed off his moves with an impressive performance at the top of last night's show.
