Proving the critics wrong, Cheryl Cole puts in a winning performance on the X Factor
Proving the critics wrong, she appeared to sing over a pre-recorded version while performing an energetic dance routine with an army of male dancers.
Wearing a red, peaked shoulder military jacket, a peaked cap, a sheer bodystocking and harem pants with slits down the side – showing her super-toned pins – Cheryl, 26, proved that not only are her popstar credentials are up to scratch, her fashion nous is also right on the money.
Bandmates, Nicola, Sarah and Kimberley were in the audience to cheer Cheryl on, along with her husband Ashley Cole.
Even Simon Cowell thought Cheryl gave an incredible performance, telling her, ‘I’d have you in my category any day.’
Whitney Houston also performed live with her new single Million Dollar Bill but sadly her outfit didn’t perform as well as she did. Halfway through, a wardrobe malfunction distracted her as she tried to fix the straps on her dress.
