Dappy Contostavlos is X Factor's newest fan.
The N-Dubz hitmaker - whose cousin Tulisa made her judging debut on the ITV1 show on Saturday night (20.08.11) alongside Kelly Rowland, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh - had previously slammed the talent series as "fake".
However, after seeing his bandmate in action on the programme and hearing 2010 'X Factor' runners-up One Direction's new single 'What Makes You Beautiful', the 24-year-old rapper admits he has changed his mind.
Writing on his twitter page, Dappy said: "I simply take my words back...After seeing the new x factor show and hearing the new single from one direction I must say...
"I'm now a fan... @officialtulisa your the best ..x factor all the way this time.. (sic)"
The star's change of heart comes after he launched a foul-mouthed rant on twitter last week, claiming Leona Lewis is the only talented act to come out of 'The X Factor'.
He tweeted: "I love tulisa and I'm so proud of her and Fazer.
"F**k X factor and every thing they stand for,no real original music or artist will ever come off that fake show exept Leona Lewis. (sic)"
