Tulisa 'Nervous' About Replacing Cheryl Cole
But the N-Dubz star feels she has earned her X Factor role...
The singer began auditions for the new series in Birmingham last week alongside fellow judges Kelly Rowland, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh.
“I’m really nervous. I’ve had mixed emotions this week. I feel pressure,” she told Heart magazine
Despite Tulisa’s nerves, the singer made it clear in the interview she isn’t trying to compete with any of the show’s past judges; "I don't feel like I'm stepping into anyone's shoes because I could never be Cheryl or Dannii."
Tulisa also made it clear that she feels she has earned her place on the judging panel, adding “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.”
