This was set to be one of the highlights to the new series of The X Factor, Cheryl Cole to perform her debut single live, but those plans may be scrapped because the star is just too nervous.
It was announced that the Girls Aloud singer was set to launch her solo career from her debut performance on The X Factor, which would have been a great marketing ploy for her, however Cheryl wants to cancel her performance, a source claims.
An insider reportedly told Now Magazine: “Although she’s worked with some of the biggest producers in pop, she feels lost without the rest of Girls Aloud. She isn’t considered the strongest singer in the band and she’s in a blind panic about singing on the show. She hasn’t yet agreed to appear on the show because she’s so nervous, but we’re not sure how much choice she’ll have.“
“She has been told to look after her vocal chords as much as possible from now on, but she’s still smoking, which isn’t helping her voice, even though it eases the stress.“
I personally am very wary of these ‘sources’, but if the rumour is true, a lot of Cheryl Cole’s fans will be very disappointed. Cheryl made the step to go solo, and sooner or later, she’ll have to confront her fears, or ditch her plans to be a solo artist. Yesterday we reported on the rumour that Cheryl Cole has another ambition, but its not to become a solo singer. Read ‘Cheryl Cole’s Secret Ambition‘
Cheryl did come off the judging panel last year to perform The Promise with Girls Aloud on the show, but she is said to be worried of performing solo in front of Mr Cowell.
Lets all hope Cheryl Cole can overcome her fears, as this will be the ideal platform from which to launch her solo career. Have you heard Cheryl Cole’s Single Yet? Its rumored to be the leaked version of ‘Puzzle’.
