XFactor 2012: Tulisa says show 'feels different' this year

Tulisa (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Tulisa Contostavlos has claimed that there's something spooky going on with the show this year.

It's not been a great few weeks for Tulisa, who' lost all of her acts and now has to cope with a less than successful debut solo album.

However Tulisa isn't going to be too down about the loss of Ella Henderson and Lucy Spraggan.

She revealed this week: "I've just got to get on with my job which is now just to be a judge and try and be the voice of reason.

"I'm still in contact with all three of my girls."

Tulisa claimed; "This year feels very different on the show to last year, it's more than just losing my acts, it's like something in the air.

"I can't really describe it but something just feels a little bit different and I can't actually myself put my finger on what it is. Maybe it's because it's 2012 , but there's some spooky stuff going on."

Now without any acts, Tulisa has been getting behind James Arthur, mentored by Nicole Scherzinger.

Tulisa gushed over the singer's version of the Power of Love at the week, describing it as her highlight of the series.

She said on the Xtra Factor at the weekend: "My most recent highlight would have to be James' performance from last night."

And Tulisa has been calling on her fans to get behind James ahead of the weekend's final.

She told viewers at the weekend that the "credible" James should be crowned the winner on Sunday night.

The X Factor 2012 continues next weekend with the live final in Manchester.

Chris Maloney, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur will be battling it out to be crowned winner, while there will be performances from One Direction, Kylie Minogue, Rhianna and Emeli Sande.
