Tulisa Contostavlos out and about in Mayfair, London, Britain - 16 Feb 2013

Tulisa is reportedly about to be cut from the X Factor judging panel in Simon Cowell’s bid to liven up the singing competition.

And as if dumping her wasn’t bad enough, an insider told the Sun that her poor album sales reflected badly on her too:

Apart from her performance on last year’s show, you can’t have a singer whose album only reached No35 in the charts sitting in judgment on other singers. Tulisa has been on the panel for two years. She had a good run, but all good things come to an end.

Her possible replacements come in the form of Mel B, Rita Ora and Sharon Osbourne.

Sharon Osbourne would be a better replacement than Tulisa?

That’s gotta sting.
