Cheryl Cole's Niece 'Dropped From The X Factor'
Melissa Armstrong reportedly devastated after audition not screened...
Melissa Armstrong, 21, told The Sun: "I have no idea what’s going on but it doesn't look like I am going to appear."
She said she wanted to enter the ITV1 talent show to make a name for herself rather than Cheryl Cole's niece - but then performed Chezza's Promise This. The judges were apparently split on whether to put her through or not.
A relative told The Sun: "Everybody is angry that Melissa's audition has been scrapped. We can't believe it. She gave a really good performance and believed she would be featured in the audition shows.
"But after it was announced Cheryl was making her surprise comeback, it all went quiet, I wonder why that is?
"If anything, Melissa is a better singer than Cheryl. It's so unfair."
Cheryl is due to appear in the show soon, helping Gary Barlow in the Judges' Houses section.
