X Factor 2012: Tulisa won't be performing this week after all!

Tulisa (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Tulisa has pulled out of her performance on the live shows this weekend.

The N-Dubz star was due to release her new single Sight Of You on Sunday, but has now delayed the release.

It means that Tulisa will instead be performing on the live semi-final show in just over a week's time.

Tulisa will be releasing her debut solo album - The Female Boss - and her new single on December 3.

The record will also include Tulisa's previously two solo tracks, Young and Live It Up.

Speaking the Metro newspaper this week, Tulisa admitted that The X Factor had been key to her success as a solo artist.

“At the end of the day I got to where I am as a solo artist with The X Factor,” she told the tabloid.

“I’m not saying my music wasn’t good enough – I still believe ‘Young’ would have gone to number one – but the way that I have been blown out of proportion is fully down to The X Factor and I am grateful for that and I would never bite the hand that feeds you.”


The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday on ITV1 and ITV1HD, with the final five acts sing two tracks each with Abba and Motown themes.

Sunday's results show will see one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna and Bruno Mars.
