This evening happened to be another explosive night on The X Factor judges panel, and there was one judge down!!
Cheryl broke down live on the show after hearing her contestant, Lloyd Daniels perform a Leona Lewis version of ‘Bleeding Love’. And Simon went out of his way to ensure he pushed Cheryl all the way.
Although Cheryl didn’t totally break down and cry, she very nearly shed tears, and certainly had a few wobbly lip moments. This seemed to get worse as soon as Simon Cowell dared to put down Cheryl’s song choice for Lloyd.
After Lloyd did his version of Leona’s song, Simon said: “You’re very very lucky that you’re cute and the chicks are going to love you. It’s like a mouse trying to climb a mountain. I’m going to put the blame for this on the girl to my right, who’s not working with you properly.“
The normally feisty Cheryl Cole then started to cry, before taking full responsibility for her poor song choice. She told Lloyd that “She’d found it difficult to choose songs for her acts this week,” before she completely broke down, and cute Lloyd swooped in for a hug. (Nice one Lloyd! Respect to you for that one!!!)
You know with Cheryl, what you see is what you get. She is fully prepared to admit when she’s in the wrong, and doesn’t try to pass the buck. She’s just won Lloyd a place in next weeks show for her moment too, Good move Cheryl!
