Tulisa eyes up return to 'X Factor' judging chair

Tulisa wants to return to 'X Factor'.

The 24-year-old singer is adamant she would like to return to the singing competitio's judging panel if asked back for a third year.

Quizzed on ITV1's 'This Morning' if she would return, she responded: "Yes, I would. Definitely."

The singer - who joined the show in 2011 along with Gary Barlow - revealed that while she would like to return behind the judges' desk, performing on the 'X Factor' stage left her feeling "scarred" as nerves got the better of her.

Looking back at her 'Sight of You' performance during the live shows, she said: "That was terrifying. I don't even want to talk about that. I've never been so scarred in my entire life.

"For some reason just doing it there - the pressure is completely different. Like I don't even get nervous anymore, and I literally was just… my legs started going and I was like, 'Oh my God, I can't control it, I'm going to faint'. I couldn't control anything I was doing."

Tulisa added she was happy for this year's 'X Factor' winner James Arthur, and felt the right act had won.

She said: "I'm really happy that James has won, I think he's a real deserved winner, he's brilliant. I just think he's a real musician, I can just see him selling albums around the world and he's just raw, home-grown and incredible."
