I’m still sad about Cheryl Cole. The whole thing seems so cruel y’now? I was surprised when it was announced that she was going to be a judge on American X Factor, but figured she must have proven herself after the months and months of speculation. I felt it was really cruel when after just 2 weeks she was unceremoniously ousted, and still feel a bit sad about the whole thing. I know, I know, she’s minted, she could have come back to X Factor UK, why the hell should you feel sorry for her? I don’t have an explanation, I just feel sad about it, and I was interested to get my eyes on some of the stuff recorded before she was out on her ear. This is a video of the official X Factor announcement and presentation in the States, and in it we get a little glimpse of herself. Looks good to me!
