I have to say, i am quite disappointed in Cheryl Cole for this. It’s been revealed today that while her young hopefuls have to sing live before the X Factor audience and 12 million people, Cheryl Cole will have the luxury of recording her single hours before the live show on Saturday night. Whats-more, she will be MIMING to her own track, Fight For This Love, NOT singing!!
Officials from the ITV talent show have confirmed the decision was made following the disastrous Girls Aloud performance on last years X Factor Live. The 5 sexy singers sang their latest hit single, The Promise, but struggled to stay in tune, meaning X Factor contestants actually sounded much better than a girl group with 6 years experience.
A show source said: “The girls did not have a huge amount of time to rehearse, and while they looked beautiful in 1950′s-style golden gowns, their vocals were terrible. We even had to have a sound engineer in the directors gallery backstage standing over the controls trying to make them sound better, but to no avail.“
Cheryl Cole has been trying to hail herself as the break-out star of Girls Aloud, and has made no bones about the big plans for her career. Nobody, not even her record label want to see her fail, which is why the decision was made that Cheryl would mime to her track, instead of singing live like The X Factor contestants.
“But, of course, Cheryl will be heavily criticised for not singing live [too damn right] and then returning to the judges chair to cast judgement on the hopefuls, who will have spent all week rehearsing and battling nerves. Cheryl will be recording her music performance earlier in the day with a live studio audience to ensure she can fully continue with her judging commitments on The X Factor later that evening,” The X Factor source said.
I don’t know about you guys here at this Cheryl Cole Fansite, but what do you think about Cheryl Cole refusing to sing live, when you bare in mind she sees herself fit to sit there and judge other hopefuls? As the owner of this website, im a HUGE fan of Cheryl Cole, but i am totally disappointed in Cheryl for not having the courage to sing live.
