N-Dubz' Dappy proud of Tulisa
N-Dubz star Dappy Contostavlos is ''proud'' of his bandmate Tulisa Contostavlos' position on 'The X Factor' judging panel
Tulisa Contostavlos is the "best thing that's happened" to 'The X Factor'.
The N-Dubz star has joined the judging panel of the ITV1 talent show alongside Louis Walsh, Kelly Rowland and Gary Barlow, and her bandmate and cousin Dappy Contostavlos thinks it is "brilliant" programme chiefs appointed someone who had found success on her own.
He told BANG Showbiz: "I'm so proud of Tulisa. Its great to have someone on there from a hard background. They needed someone brutal on it to tell it how it is.
"It's the best thing that's happened. It's great that such a homegrown act who hasn't had no help in the past is now good enough to go on an 'X Factor' panel and judge other acts. She's going to go on there and be brilliant."
While Dappy is proud of Tulisa, he wouldn't have wanted her position because he thinks he would be too honest with the hopefuls.
Speaking at T4 On The Beach, he added: "I would never be allowed to go on it because I would just be really honest and if I thought someone was s**t I would tell them. If someone's good then praise them because if they're good then they deserve it."
