Nadine Coyle's X Factor Performance Scrapped
The singer has apparently been replaced by 'more famous' Cheryl...
According to TellyMix's The X Factor blog, a source revealed: "The X Factor wants only the biggest names and stars to perform."
"This is a show which gets up to 20 million viewers watching every week, the show doesn’t need third rate performers and flop acts."
They added: "Nadine was originally being considered for a slot, however bosses decided they could get more famous singers.”
The Irish singer, who has previously quashed rumours of rivalry between herself and Chezza, is already behind Cole in the singles race, despite neither tracks being released.
Reports suggest Nadz' Insatiable is struggling to get radio play and has only appeared in 39th position on some video Top 40 charts.
In a stark contrast, Cheryl's new tune Promise This, is already in the top 10, regardless of the fact it isn't officially released until 24th October.
Cheryl's performance of Fight For This Love on last year's XF also attracted over 15 million viewers, a number she will be hoping to break when she performs Promise This on the show in two weeks time.
