Tulisa: 'I was so nervous replacing Cheryl on X Factor'
Tulisa Contostavlos has admitted that she was intially 'so nervous' about replacing Cheryl Cole on The X Factor.
The N-Dubz singer admitted to feeling the pressure ahead of the first auditions for the UK version in Birmingham last week.
'I'm really nervous. I've had mixed emotions this week. I feel pressure,' she said.
Her comments come after Cheryl apparently sent Tulisa a bunch of flowers wishing her luck on the show.
Despite her initial nerves, the singer said she also believes in her own ability.
She told Heat magazine: 'I'm involved in the writing, producing and singing, so it's not like I've had a couple of hits and that's it.
'I feel like I've earned my spot on the judging panel.'
