New season of 'X Factor' is 'dangerous' says Tulisa

Monday July 4, 2011

New X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has promised this year's competition was going to be "dangerous".

The N-Dubz star was hanging out backstage at the Wireless festival in London's Hyde Park on Saturday with her friends when she made the prediction.

She was on a break from auditioning aspiring pop stars with Louis Walsh and fellow new panelists Gary Barlow and Kelly Rowland.

When asked how the auditions were going she replied: "Really good".

"There's going to be some tough competition this year. It's going to be dangerous."

The 22-year-old hip-hop star was at the festival to see headliners Chemical Brothers and said she was expecting some "rockin' beats".

Meanwhile, Mike Skinner of The Streets told the crowd they looked "cleaner" than the crowd at Glastonbury but that he hoped to encourage some more dancing spirit in them.

His performance was slightly overshadowed by the projection of two girls in the audience kissing onto the big screens either side of the stage, which seemed to grab the attention of the crowd.
