The 20-year-old from Sheffield wowed the X Factor judges, including Mel B, in Manchester and sailed through to bootcamp.
Louis Walsh said the song could be a number one record. "Very few people get that reaction, he told the portrait seller as the audience was asking for more. "It's fantastic".
"I loved your song," Gary Barlow told her. "When you listed all those drinks, it's just a regular night out for Tulisa," he joked.
Tulisa said she "really loved" the tune, while Mel B told the songwriter: "You don't know how great you are."
"You've got a little bit of vulnerability about you. You're brilliant. Be confident."
I'm so overwhelmed. I never thought I'd be able to do that. I'm so excited.
A chimney cleaner also swept the judges off their feet when he performed RIP in front of guest judge Rita Ora in London.
She told Kye Sones: "You made RIP sound so cool man! Can I tell you something? You're a superstar!"
Louis added: "You were born to sing, you weren't born to clean chimneys. We're looking for the X Factor and I think we found the X Factor in you."
Kye told the judges: "I don't just want the songs I write to end up on pads of paper around my flat, you know, I want to be heard."
Other contestants included Rylan Clark, from Essex, who said he was "all about Ibiza". He received a mixed response after his rendition of Des'ree's Kissing You, with Gary telling him: "Love your personality, hate your voice."
Tulisa said: "I'm an Ibiza girl so I love the fact that you've brought a bit of Ibiza to us today. I mean, you're fun."
