Tulisa Contostavlos has sparked rumours that she is set to join the new X Factor USA juding panel, after being spotted jetting into LA.

The N-Dubz singer, who is a judge on the UK version of the show, flew into LAX airport yesterday, with a big grin on her face.

Dressed in skinny blue jeans and a checked green shirt, and wearing the must-have celebrity accessory – a huge pair of sunglasses – Tulisa’s arrival was met with excitement as the press snapped the pretty 23-year-old walking through the airport.

Over the last few days it has emerged that show host Steve Jones, as well as judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, will not be returning for the second series of The X Factor USA.

Show boss Simon Cowell will no doubt be on the lookout for good replacements, and is known to have been very pleased with Tulisa’s performance as a judge on the UK show last year.

Of course Tulisa might have been in the USA for a very different reason altogether – but we can’t help but wonder if she’s all set for a big move to the States…

Meanwhile, various rumours have emerged about the possible replacements for the judges who have been cut from the line-up, with Cheryl Cole, Katy Perry and Mariah Carey just some of the big names said to be on Simon’s wish-list.

The latest big star linked to the job is R&B superstar Beyonce, who has performed on the UK show in the past.

Looks like the next series of X Factor USA is going to be Xtra Xciting!
