Cheryl hits back at internet troll
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has proven that her X Factor performance is still a sensitive subject, after she lashed out at an internet troll.
The 31-year-old singer, who faced accusations that she mimed when she sang her new single I Don't Care on the Sunday night (November 2) results show, hit back at an Instagram user as she promoted her new album, Only Human.
"For those who have pre-ordered your copy of my album #OnlyHuman go to iTunes at midnight. There's a little something for you," she posted.
When someone asked her, "Do we get discount on your mimed performance you did on sat?", she shot back: " Aww bless you live performances are not included on albums I'm afraid.
"And I performed on Sunday! Don't mug yourself off on my page. It's not cute. Go teach some dance instead," she added.
Cheryl's fans were quick to support her, with o ne user, known as Rosie Walton, writing: " I love your comeback from that troll. Hilarious! We all know you wasn't miming, performance was amazing, don't let anyone bring you down remember 'I don't care'..."
Meanwhile, Simon Cowell has reportedly banned The X Factor host Dermot O'Leary from doing his opening dance on the show - because he deems it too "distracting", despite fans clamouring for it.
"Dermot has done a dance routine every year for the last three years but he won't be doing one this year. Simon doesn't want Dermot to dance as it would be a distraction from the contestants," a source told Metro.
