XFactor 2012: Tulisa want to be back next year

Tulisa (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has said she hopes to be back on the show next year.

Tulisa joined the series last year alongside Gary Barlow and Kelly Rowland.

While her first year on the show saw Tulisa make X Factor history by mentoring a group to the win, this year saw Tulisa become the first judge to lose all her acts.

Speaking on This Morning on ITV1 yesterday, Tulisa was quizzed on whether she wanted to return for a third series.

“Yeah, I would definitely,” she replied.

Tulisa said at the weekend that she liked the power and money that The X Factor brings.
In a rather honest interview with the Daily Mirror, the ‘Young’ hitmaker was pretty clear on why she signed up to the show.

“I’m going to keep it real and say the money and the power,” she told the newspaper. “When I was in N-Dubz we didn’t keep count of our endorsements and stuff like that, but since The X Factor I’ve become very secure in that sense. That’s an amazing feeling.

“I’ve now bought my dream home and I’ll be moving there in about three months’ time.”

Meanwhile, also on This Morning, Tulisa revealed she was left terrified when performing live on the show earlier this month.

She explained: “That was terrifying, I don’t even want to talk about that. I have never been so scared in all my life.

“For some reason, just doing it there, the pressure is completely different. I don’t even get nervous anymore usually and I literally was just shaking. My legs started going, I thought I was going to faint. I couldn’t control what I was doing.”

Tulisa added: "I couldn’t understand it, but I think it’s because of the whole year I have been through and just feeling like the media attention was on me and the pressure from the public and I just felt like I was being judged so much that it literally cracked me.”
