Cheryl Cole wowed the X Factor crowd last night with her performance of new singleGirls Aloud star would pre-record the track, but executives on the show decided to let Mrs. Cole sing live with help from some pre-recorded vocals.
The X Factor judge stepped from behind the famous panel desk clad in a saucy body suit with military style jacket and hat to complete the look for her eagerly awaited performance.
Fellow judges Dannii Minogue andSimon Cowellapplauded Cole’s heroic performance with Cowell stating: “It really is going to pain me to say this, but that was incredible.”
He added: Girls Aloud members Ashley Cole were also on hand to congratulate Chezza on her first solo performance.
It may have been all smiles for Cheryl, but diva Whitney Houstonencountered a major wardrobe malfunction during her performance of new single, Million Dollar Bill.
The six-time Grammy winner’s dress came undone as she was singing – leaving poor old Whitters visibly angry as she struggled to re-tie the loose strap on her silver gown.
In true diva style, Houston tried to joke about the problem telling host Dermot O’Leary: “I sang my song out of my dress!”
Whitney, who is a recovering drug addict, has come under criticism for her X Factor comeback performance as she appeared unresponsive to O’Leary’s questions after she finished singing.
She seemed to struggle throughout the interview, even having to take a rather long pause to say the release date her new LP, I Look To You.
Next Sunday will see the contestants take on the infamous Big Band week along with live performances from crooner Michael Buble and Westlife.
