Sinetta Backs Tulisa as New X Factor Judge

Simon Cowell’s side-kick Sinetta has given her backing to new X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos, saying the public should give the N Dubz star ‘a chance’.

The young Londoner is tipped to join Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Kelly Rowland in the new series of the ITV show when it returns in the summer.

‘I don’t know that much about Tulisa. I can imagine all the things people are going to say, that she is too young and how is she qualified?

‘But, if you think back a few years, everyone said the same about Cheryl. We just have to give her a chance.’

The 80s pop diva adds: ‘N-Dubz have quite a reputation for foul language and being rowdy. They have that sort of vibe. And the fact that she is hanging out with two guys the whole time means she must have had to toughen up.

‘But that could be exciting. She could be a bit like an early Kelly Osbourne, in your face, opinionated and feisty.’
