TULISA IS IN:DEMAND; the Razz.

Byline: BEV LYONS

X Factor judge set to star at Glasgow pop festival Exclusive X FACTOR judge Tulisa Contostavlos has joined the bill for In:Demand Live in Glasgow.

The former N-Dubz singer is one the biggest names to be confirmed for the SECC festival.

And today, we can reveal that Lawson, Cover Drive, Stooshe and Skepta have also signed up to perform.

Tulisa releases her debut solo single on May 6 and can't wait to return to Scotland for the pop gig, which is being held in conjunction with Scottish Hydro.

It will be her first appearance on the giant stage at the festival, following in her ex-bandmate Dappy's footsteps from last year - and seems certain to be a memorable performance.

STRONG As well as the new dance single We Are Young, Tulisa, 23, will perform some of N-Dubz's biggest hits in her set.

The pop fest on May 20 already boasts a strong line-up of pop and dance acts - with many stars returning to the event that helped launch them.

They include The Saturdays, Professor Green, Alexandra Burke, Tinchy Stryder and Alyssa Reid.

But the latest four acts joining them for the big bash will excite fans too.

Liverpool lads Lawson are already causing a stir with the girls and have supported The Wanted on tour. They have amassed a huge following online with cover versions including Lady Gaga's Marry The Night. The boys release single When She Was Mine on May 27.

Twilight chart-toppers Cover Drive join the bill for a second year in a row. This time band members Amanda, T-Ray, Bar-Man and Jamar, who have supported Rihanna, will be playing hits such as Lick Ya Down and new single Sparks from their debut album Bajan Style, out on May 7. Three-piece British R&B band Stooshe have confirmed they'll play and since the release of their debut Love Me, featuring Travie McCoy, on March 4 they've been hot property. And we can also announce an appearance from Skepta.

The grime star has had successes on the R&B circuit with songs like Bad Boy, Rescue Me and Cross My Heart and this year sees the launch of his fourth album.

In:Demand host, Clyde 1 star Romeo, said: "We've got some of the hottest stars in UK pop in there. It's great to see some previous artists coming back and I can't wait to unveil the next bunch of big names."
