Tulisa's terrifying X Factor gig

Tulisa Contostavlos said making an album without her N-Dubz bandmates was daunting

Tulisa Contostavlos has admitted that her recent performance on The X Factor was scary.

The TV judge got a taste of what the contestants go through when she took to the stage on December 2 to sing her new single Sight Of You.

"That was terrifying, I don't even want to talk about that - I've never been so scared in my entire life," she said on This Morning.

"For some reason just doing it there - the pressure is completely different. I just felt like I was being judged so much that it literally cracked me... It was more to do with the overall pressure that I had - I let it get to me."

The 24-year-old, who performed at the top of the BT Tower as part of the BT Infinity Presents... Live from the 34th Floor last night, revealed recording her debut solo album The Female Boss, without her N-Dubz bandmates Dappy and Fazer, was a daunting experience.

"The whole process is scary. And being so used to having the boys with me either side, and what direction I was going to take it in as well, but luckily it just kind of came natural when I was in the studio," she said.

Tulisa - who is hoping 2013 will be her "year of enlightenment" and her "happy year" - said she would "definitely" return to The X Factor next year if asked, even if N-Dubz reform.

"We've had loads of talks. I think we just all need to sit down as a three and have a little meeting and go, 'If we're going to do it, then let's put a date on it'," she added.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
