Cheryl Cole Denies Lip Synching / Gives Vocal Advice

Published: Thursday 7th Jun 2012 by David

Since her dismissal from the X Factor , Cheryl Cole ‘nation’s sweetheart’ gimmick has-unfortunately for her- become all too easy to see through.

Indeed, if comments made on her performances on ‘The Voice UK’ and the Queen’s ‘Jubilee concert’ are anything to go by, the issue of Cheryl’s talent- and not aesthetic as had previously been the case- has taken centre stage, forcing many to question her validity as a singer.

Now she has hit back at these criticisms, insisting that she does perform her vocals live.

Her defense below…

Speaking to the BBC, she explained:

 If you think my live vocal sounds so good it must be mimed, I’m happy

I take it as a compliment.

Going onto add:

There’s a track on the Super Deluxe edition of the album called Teddy Bear. When we were recording it, I just sat eating Oreo Cookies and Pinkberry frozen yoghurt, and In and Out Burger all day.

I was singing in the morning and everything was fine. Then I went in after having a burger and I was singing [exaggerated Batman growl] down there.

You have to use your stomach when you sing. If it’s digesting, it’s not a happy place to be.

Clearly bothered by the backlash she is facing from her Gary Barlow assisted ‘Jubilee’ set, it’s interesting that Cheryl’s decided to dwell on the matter when everyone else established her voice wasn’t the business back in 2009.

At the moment, her biggest problem isn’t lip synching but the fact that people wish she did when she does opt to sing live.

For, while the likes of Rihanna know how to hold a note despite having Grade F voices, Mz. Cole is guilty of being unable to sing live and having a poor singing voice.

A shame, as her Grade A music is deserving of so much more.

Your thoughts?

    I think she is a good singer 🙂 Kelly Rowland can sing live and so can Rihanna.

  4. JAISONBLAZE June 7, 2012

    (-_-) she did NOT give a good performance for the jubilee…. Her vocals weren’t on point at all… Where is Celine when u need her?

  5. the real xoxo June 7, 2012

    she did lip sync! and even when she sang live on the jubilee concert she sounded like s***!

    SINGING LIVE DOESNT MEAN SINGING GOOD.

  6. Ana June 7, 2012

    She wasn’t miming? Her lips wern’t even moving to the words half the time during the performance. Does she really think people are dumb s*** and can’t tell the difference between a mimed and live performance?

    Rihanna’s fans can give Sam proof she can sing… Oh whats that? He wants to say Rihanna who has one of the best voices has a grade F voice? He wants to blatantly lie? SINGING ABILITY and what you VOICE SOUNDS LIKE are much different things, Sam needs to get off her d*** and remember that he has one in the first place,

    Tryna have a cat fight with someone who doesen’t give a f***, poor b****!

      reverse psychology maybe?

  13. Vegas Girl June 7, 2012

    This , in all honesty is worse than lip synching because the artist, Cole, can legitimately say she doesn’t lipsynch, yet the likelihood of really hearing her voice with the backing track up and the mic really low, is slim. I hate this s*** because it’s dishonest but they can use the excuse. It lame as f***.

  14. WOLVERINES June 7, 2012

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me
    tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
