Outspoken Camden girl has the X Factor
Tulisa found fame after plenty of graft and a troubled childhood with N-Dubz. Originally performing under the name Lickle Rinsers Crew at just age 11 with cousin Dappy and ex-boyfriend-to-be Fazer, N-Dubz took on the charts back in 2005 with Every Day Of My Life.
Their unique brand of chav-pop and the 4Music documentary Being... N-Dubz endeared them to the public, and led Tulisa to swapping Juicy Couture trackies for haute-couture dresses and taking up a coveted seat on the X Factor judging panel. Tulisa is now in her second series as an X Factor judge and is hoping one of her acts will take the crown as Little Mix did last year.
Outspoken and never afraid to speak her mind, Tulisa certainly made an impression on the show. She also mentored the overall winners, Little Mix.
Not one to lose the spotlight to a bunch of newcomers though, Tulisa has kicked off her solo career with lead single Young. Though the sun-soaked music video shot in LA has been overshadowed by a rather more adult video of Tulisa's, the singer has brushed off the controversy with her Camden confidence and kept her sights on the charts. Young and Live It Up have both stormed the UK Top 20 Singles Chart and her debut solo album The Female Boss is likely to do the same!
Now that we're judging her, how will she fare?
