X Factor 2012: Tulisa wants to mentor Nicole Scherzinger's boys!

Tulisa (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Tulisa has revealed she'd love to mentor the boys category.

Nicole has become the UK's most successful judge in the nine year history of the show, with all three of her acts remaining seven weeks into the live shows.

Tulisa meanwhile has just the one act left, thanks to a badly timed illness ruling Lucy Spraggan out of the show.

Speaking to the official ITV1 X Factor website, Tulisa admitted: "I’d mentor the Boys.

"I’m a fan of James Arthur and love the way he takes ownership of any song he performs."

And Tulisa explained she was also a huge fan of Jahmene Douglas, despite recent press reports!

"I didn’t say that Jahmene couldn’t sell a record outside of the competition," Tulisa said. "Someone else said: ‘Do you think that Jahmene will be able to sell records outside of the competition?' and I replied with: ‘I don’t know. I’ve never thought about it.’ Of course, Jahmene will sell records. He’s phenomenal!"

As it stands, Tulisa has just Ella Henderson left in her category, but the N-Dubz star loves the 16-year-old.

She said: "She's fine. All the boys look out for her. I find it a bit of a novelty seeing as I was the only girl in N-Dubz. I love Ella! I’ve been giving her advice about boys and relationships. I’ve told Ella to wait and make the boys chase after her."


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a guilty pleasures theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from Alicia Keys and Olly Murs, as well as one more act being given the boot.
