CELEB Ru­mours of her death...

Sunday Sun - - News -

MU­SIC mogul Si­mon Cow­ell said he thought Cheryl had “died” dur­ing her con­tro­ver­sial X Fac­tor per­for­mance.

The pre­sen­ter said he was con­cerned when the Ge­ordie star col­lapsed on the floor when her song Love Made Me Do It came to a close.

Cheryl’s much-dis­cussed per­for­mance on the ITV show has di­vided opin­ion with fans, with some pan­ning it and oth­ers prais­ing it.

Si­mon was seen point­ing to­wards Cheryl with a slightly con­fused look on his face when her song fin­ished.

And speak­ing on This Morn­ing, he re­vealed what he was think­ing.

He said: “Well I thought she was dead at the end, ac­tu­ally.

“I re­mem­ber her lay­ing there and I said to Louis [Tom­lin­son], ‘I think she’s dead’. And then she stood up, so I was laugh­ing af­ter­wards.”

Cheryl’s per­for­mance was so con­tro­ver­sial that more than 100 peo­ple com­plained to broad­cast­ing watch­dog Of­com.

The singer’s dance rou­tine was ac­cused of be­ing too sex­ual for a fam­ily show, prompt­ing Cheryl to un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally speak out and de­fend her per­for­mance.

“I did watch my per­for­mance back and I LOVED IT!” she tweeted as she took aim at “un­bal­anced neg­a­tiv­ity”.

And ap­pear­ing on The Gra­ham Nor­ton Show she was all smiles as she daz­zled in a seethrough red jump­suit and sang Love Made Me Do It for the pre­re­corded show. Cheryl on Fri­day’s Gra­ham Nor­ton Show
