Cheryl Cole "A Huge Hit" On X Factor USA
Reports claim Chezza's TV debut has gone down a storm in the US...
The newspaper also reports that four contestants have asked the Parachute hitmaker for her digits, with one 16-year old admitting: "I only auditioned because I wanted Cheryl's number."
Another hopeful also took to the stage at the 10,000 seater arena in LA to sing Cole a love song, stating: "I'm singing this about you and me."
The 27-year old, who arrived at the auditions with huge hair and dressed in a bright orange and purple outfit, also joked about her North-East accent, telling the crowd to "bear with her."
She is then said to have added: "It might take you a second to understand my accent but we’ll get there. And just remember, it’s really hard for the contestants coming on here, sometimes – so be kind.”
The Mirror's 3am claims that after her debut as a panelist, Cole seemed to win over the crowd, with the audience chanting "We Love Cheryl" as she left the auditorium.
Top US magazine Entertainment Weekly also seems to be a fan of Chezza's calling her "charming", while the LA Times set up a web feed on their site dedicated to all things Cole.
Local TV host, Asha K, also had nothing but praise for the Fight For This Love star, telling The Sun: "Cheryl has a great way of criticising and commenting on performances. It's hard not to love her!"
Despite the positive reactions to Cheryl, the star herself has admitted to Yahoo: "I miss the UK already but I’m such a homebody. This is actually really good for me, to just step out of my comfort zone too and push myself.”
She continued: “It’s a big step for me. I’m kind of staking a lot myself too. I’ve left the UK X Factor and I’m in a foreign country. It’s so strange for me. It’s a big deal.”
When asked if she was nervous about her stint as an X Factor USA judge, Cole replied: "If it was my music then yes, absolutely,”
"I feel like it’s the contestants who are the ones with the nerves and it’s about me helping someone else with their dream. I think talent is talent."
Chez added: "Talent doesn’t have a city – it is what is it and if you are talented, then it doesn’t matter where you are from.”
