Tulisa must be gloating today after it's revealed that she's beaten off X Factor rival judge Nicole Scherzinger to snare Tinie Tempar for the Judges Houses round of the show!
Earlier this month it was reported that newbie Nicole was keen to woo Tinie to her mentoring team with The Sun reporting a source as saying: "Nicole has the boys and, while she prides herself on being able to spot male talent, she knows having a bloke at her side will help. Bosses have come up with several options but Tinie is the one she is keen on, so hopefully he will be free."
It sounds like Tulisa pulled out all the stops though to steal the rapper away from Nic with The Sun now reporting that Tinie will head to Tulisa's pad in Las Vegas for the judge's houses round of the ITV show. A source said: “Tulisa is thrilled Tinie is coming with her at last.”
Don't feel too bad for Nicole though as the paper claims she's managed to bag Ne-Yo to help her out at her house in Dubai. Nicole kept her twitter followers up to date on her whereabouts over the weekend, tweeting yesterday (August 26): “Just landed in Dubai!."
Subtle Ne-Yo was quick to follow as he told his followers: “Dubai...how’ve you been? I’ve missed you. Tho my visit shall be brief, I leave a small piece of my heart here.”
Meanwhile the two other guest mentors are believed to be Sharon Osbourne who will be helping out Louis Walsh and Robbie Williams who Gary Barlow is hoping will join him for the second year in a row.
We can't wait to see Tinie and co in their judges seats!
