Cheryl Cole 'gets real stagefright'

Cheryl Cole gets nervous before performing, Dermot O'Leary said

Cheryl Cole still suffers from stagefright, Dermot O'Leary has revealed.

The Fight For This Love singer's cool composure melts before a live performance, despite her years of experience performing with Girls Aloud.

"She breezes through the studio and the auditions and she's brilliant, she shows no sign of nerves whatsoever - but the minute she has to go out there and sing, she absolutely s***s herself," said the X Factor presenter at the Elle Style Awards in London.

He added: "This shows she cares. She's so professional and meticulous. What I love about her is how much she cares about it all."

Dermot, who presented Cheryl - who was wearing a stunning red gown - with her award for best music, is still hoping to team up with her for the US X Factor.

"I'd rather be travelling with her than Simon," he quipped.

"I don't know, I'm on the shortlist, that's all I know so we'll see. I want it but I think it's me and four Americans, so chances are I won't get it. But it's nice to be on the shortlist anyway."

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
