Should Cheryl Cole be a “Girl Aloud”? Better that she be seen but not heard!!

March 27, 2010

It’s been reported that Simon Cowell, architect of The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, has hired Ellis Watson, a former managing X Factor logo IIdirector of Trinity Mirror, as chief executive of his Syco Entertainment venture.  As he hires one potential asset to his empire, perhaps he should consider firing Cheryl Cole, who is in danger of becoming a liability to his organisation.

Cheryl ColeCheryl Cole is undoubtedly a very attractive human being. She has a face and dimples “to launch a thousand ships”, with a very endearing personality to match. What unfortunately she doesn’t possess is a great, or even good singing voice. As a member of Girls Aloud, she is carried by stronger vocal elements within the ensemble. Her pursuit of a solo career during a sabbatical from Girls Aloud, has cruelly exposed her technical deficiencies as a singer – no amount of distracting dancers and props at the Brit Awards could alter the fact that she displays weak vocals. Infact on subsequent live shows, there has been a strong suggestion that she was lip synching.

On this basis, does Cheryl Cole qualify as an authoritative judge on The X Factor? Whatever your thoughts of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Danni Minogue and former judge, Sharon Osborne, they all have sound musical credentials. How on earth can Cheryl Cole champion and mentor her young protegees, when most of them eclipse her as a singer?!! By all means retain her services on The X Factor in the capacity of a “Big Sister” or “Agony Aunt” at boot camp and behind the scenes in the later stages of the competition – she is ideally suited to this role as she has a genuinely warm, caring, compassionate, empathetic and sympathetic personality.

Of course the removal of the X Factor judge is not going to happen as Cheryl Cole is far too popular with the public!! So in the meantime somebody call the SAS to “Parachute” Mrs Cole out of this unholy mess of a solo career, before her credibility as an X Factor judge is undermined completely!!
