Either she managed to find a telly backstage or X Factor debut this weekend as she was otherwise occupied, taking to the stage with the rest of N-Dubz to show Virgin Media's V Festival-goers how she earned her judging credentials.
The singer performed at Hylands Park near Chelmsford on Saturday and at Weston Park near Birmingham on Sunday. The latter performance saw her don a one-shoulder leopard print mini and black boots as she showcased her vocal talents alongside fellow band members Dappy and Fazer .
Tulisa didn't neglect her promotional duties though, remembering to tweet a reminder to watch the show to her fans: "So excited for the first episode to air tonight!! Hope you all enjoy the show! ITV1 8pm"
