Kelly Rowland Helps Tulisa Break The US

The X Factor judges team up to help each other's careers.

Tulisa is planning a solo career and has been telling her N-Dubz bandmates she's been getting tips from Kelly.

"Tulisa told the band how she was getting close to fellow X Factor judge Kelly Rowland and how they had discussed her cracking America," a source revealed.

Dappy and Fazer are both launching solo careers but the band insist they have no intention of breaking up.

Despite this, the source tells The Sun that Tulisa could use a performance opportunity on The X Factor live shows to promote her own career.

"Instead of N-Dubz performing on the show, Tulisa is planning to use a key slot to promote her solo career," they spilled.

"She has even talked about a collaboration with Kelly instead."

The X Factor returns this weekend.
