Seems to me that you just can't flog a dead horse these days anymore. It's no wonder then why X Factor has been slipping down the ratings table each weekend

On pre-orders it's not even on the iTunes top 300! The reviews have been absolutely horrendous, either 1 or 2 stars. For someone who has such a huge amount of exposure, it's very embarassing.

The album is dreadful. She has the same shouting strained voice across the whole thing. She hasn't been a success on The X Factor this year, but I still think the album could make it into the top 10 (or close) last minute due to the promotion and the fact that the show is watched by her target audience.

The album won't make the top 10. It's been obvious for months already. Young is a terrible song to use to see an album (although Live It Up and Sight of You are better, but they're not very well-known).

It's a good album though. I like most of the songs. But I think it'll miss the top 20 tbh. The promotion isn't as good as you think. Tulisa being on TV every week isn't going to make people buy her album. You need good album-selling hits that get lots of radio airplay, and Tulisa hasn't had any. Young isn't a very good song.

Her tweets are just horribly, horribly desperate as well:

@officialtulisa: Who's pre-ordered my album? If you tweet me a picture of it ill follow you!

Basically getting kids to pay a tenner for a follow on twitter. Urgh.

Maybe it'll be a hit in Ibiza.

If she really misses the top 10 with all the promo and exposure she has and has tonight it would be one of the biggest flops ever. She should be aiming for #1.

It'll still do better than Kelly R's last year. I don't think hers even broke into the top 50.

Hope so. Talentless singer, and a truly vile person. It's depressing that someone like her has managed to become such a big 'star'

A bit harsh

you don't know her to say she is a 'vile'. She's not that bad man.

A bit harsh? I don't know her personally, but I do know that she is constantly foul-mouthed and moody, screams abuse at anyone who dares to disagree with her on anything (especially on Twitter), and got with a footballer who had a pregnant girlfriend at the time, then had the shameless temerity to call the girlfriend a "psychotic obsessed nutta" when she wasn't happy with it. And all this as if to try and seem like she's some kind of strong, tough woman, or as she likes to think of herself, 'The Female Boss'

So yes, she is vile.

She did that with her last single Live It Up.......

Her performance yesterday was embarrassing. She should have phoned in sick.

That XF performance would have put off casual buyers, too. Tulisa is a charisma-free zone, and isn't interesting enough for a solo career.

So am I right in thinking that if you tweet a picture of her album you're meant to literally take a photo of it to somehow prove that you actually bought it?

Is that what she actually means?

I think she means a copy of the pre-order invoice? It really is the last word in desperation...

Her mistake was waiting this long to release the album, had she released it back in the Spring when Young was everywhere and selling like hotcakes she'd probaly have a platinum album on her hands by now.

She really should have released it after young or even last year as last year she was quite popular this year she is disliked by a lot .

It's actually an ok album. But the style of music on the album isn't really suited. She has found her sound just yet.

booboo her album was realeased in July before X Factor. November was a re-release basically, deluxe edition whatever you call it and it charted at #23 which isnt bad for a re release
