Shocker: Cheryl Cole Lip Synchs On ‘The Graham Norton’ Show.

Now she’s cut ties with the ITV network, it seems Cheryl Cole has turned to its rival BBC to push her forthcoming ‘ A Million Lights‘ Lp.

From her stellar performance on The Voice UK to her to her ‘telling’ set at the Queen’s ‘Jubilee’ concert, Cole’s return to the charts has rather interestingly centered around appearances on the channel.

Now watch her lip synch her way through her new single ‘Call My Name‘ on ‘The Graham Norton’ show, armed with a well produced but poorly delivered backing vocal.

While we’ll commend Cheryl for re-recording the cut for ‘live purposes’, it’s safe to say the campaign for this project is likely to be shorter than that of ‘Messy Little Raindrop’s.

For, as the above performance proves, Cole cannot carry the success of the LP on the back of appearances like these.

Appearances , which though tick many a superficial box, will do nothing to shift real units once release day swings by.

Appearances, that have little to say for a career which almost spans a decade but it is yet to secure her the solo success worthy of the silicone statistics her team stay pushing to the British public.

    Drop the name “Cole” already ! Why would you keep a surname of a man that cheated on you smh

    • Beyonce the Legend June 8, 2012

      She dropped cole long time! Even the songs title on her youtube page is “Cheryl – call my name”

      • HerNameIsNicole June 8, 2012

        why drop the last name when you’re still with the guy. She can pretend all she wants but she’s in love with a serial cheater who doesnt even respect her to stop cheating after second, third and fourth scandal.

        Maybe he’s looking for a REAL singer? You know, the kind that can sing regardless of where their music charts

  2. VIVALAONYX June 8, 2012

  3. soulmusiclover June 8, 2012

    she can dance though

    • i’m not throwing shade, but… June 9, 2012


  4. RazB32 June 8, 2012

    I’m not sure why you’re shading her xFactor job, she’s the one who picked and got Alex through to win… If Cheryl didn’t go with Alex and utilize her so well she wouldn’t have won and you wouldn’t be here promoting her to the ends of the earth.

    As for lip-synching, you could hear her vocals and I think some of it was pre-recorded cos there was a part which didn’t sync but her mic was on and she sung over the backing and she peformed the hell out of the song. SO please get a grip and stop hating like this on new talent!

    Also MJ, Janet Jackson and Madonna have lip-synced performances before and put on a good show, I don’t see you going for them? She killed the performance so deal with it and stick your negativity…C****

    • the real xoxo June 8, 2012

      whatever, she still sounded like s*** lip synced or not.

      • RazB32 June 8, 2012

        Yet the song will go to #1 as will her album.
        Stay mad while she cashes cheques.
        *files nails*

    • the real xoxo June 9, 2012

      i dont mind the song. i think shes one of the hottest women in the world. there is just no real talent here.

  5. QueenOfTheNavy June 8, 2012

    VivaLaOnyx first off let me start by saying that your lipgloss is not popping.

    Second of all, this s*** she just did is a brand new performance that aired half an hour ago in the uk, i watched it live on a stream. So unless you’re saying they should only post one performance per album promo they really have no choice but to comment on her.

    • DoesYourFaveHaveFourNumberOnes June 8, 2012

      A rihanna fan shading cheryl?? Now ive seen it all.
      They’re like for like. Both beautiful but madly untalented!

  6. BlahBlah June 8, 2012

    She will sell because she’s Cheryl Cole. Her album will reach number one whether or not she sings live or not.
    It’s sad but hey that’s life

  7. Benron June 8, 2012

    Don’t we praise Chris brown, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce here, because those 3 r no strangers 2 lyp-syncing.
    Now Beyonce does it because she dances (only half the songs usuallY)
    Chris brown dances because he lyp-synces.
    Nicki is just a half lyp-sync mess!
    I think cheryl with the right song could beat nicki, this site would cry!

    • RazB32 June 8, 2012

      Beyoncé doesn’t lipsync. She leaves the playback on and dances. Lipsynching is what chris brown does and just has the album/single version and and moves his lips.
      A voice comes out of Beyoncé’s mouth, please don’t put her next to those two jokes of an act live

      • Sam June 8, 2012

        Beyonce is one of the greatest live acts of our generation. She shows she can dance (Single Ladies, Crazy In Love), in which she ussually sings the verses and then there is a backing track for the chorus, but she doesnt attempt to mime. Then you have got peformances where she shows her Adele and her amzing vocal (Halo, 1+1, Listen). That is why she is called an all round peformer and the reason why she is so critically aclaimed.

    • Yessir June 8, 2012

      You have got to be joking. Beyonce is a well rounded performer, and critically acclaimed as being one of the few who can produce amazing live vocals whist dancing.

  8. Benron June 8, 2012

    It was actually entertaining, if she put in some live vocals and somehow pulled it off she could be a great entertainer!

  9. Jay June 8, 2012

    Are you insane????? She did great!! Its so funny who this site chooses to hate on. At least she actually takes the time to make her show worth watching. She’s a pop star not f****** Mariah or Christina.

  10. Beyonce’s Weave June 8, 2012

    Nice try Samantha but she didn’t lyp synch unlike Chris the woman beater Brown. Now that white dancer (I think he’s a dirty blonde) is fine as hell, wow.

    • Beyonce’s Weave June 8, 2012

      oops Lip synch….hehehe

  11. Peter Griffin June 8, 2012

    lol @ the sarcasm in the headline. Everytime she gets interviewed, it feels really awkward. Why was she bitching about Simon, dumb b**** forgot that he made her! It also seemed like she was licking Katy’s ass through out. How many times did she have to touch her leg?!?

  12. Jboss June 8, 2012

    I think she did good, no she didn’t sing live. But, alteast she danced and entertained. I liked it. It 10x better than say a Rihanna. Let her lip if she want too damn

    • the real xoxo June 9, 2012

      shes supposed to be a SINGER. thats why shes filthy rich. people like you are the reason music has been shite for the past 5 years.

    • Stephen June 9, 2012

      Every singing artist is first and foremost a SINGER before anything else, so dancing isn’t an excuse. When we are listening to music, we don’t see the artist dancing, we hear him singing

  13. LAX June 8, 2012


    RIHANNA >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>CHERYL COLE She cant sing for sh*t

  14. JER June 8, 2012

    Oh please. Samantha, you were one of the ones pimping Cheryl Cole out trying to make her happen and you SERIOUSLY think it’s a surprise this STRAGERBITCH lipsynchs? Dumb f*****

  15. Yessir June 8, 2012

    She threw a little bit of Rihannas choreo from “Where Have You Been” in there lol

  16. Leon June 9, 2012

    In my opinion she was singing live! you can hear the differences from the audio and this performance. I can hear her breathing and holding the notes. But whatever she did, this was still a great performance and I enjoyed it. She’s a performer and that’s what she did here! Stop hating, Cheryl’s promoted well and will continue to and her cd will be fine! June 16th she’s promoting at the G-A-Y club (home to Girls Aloud btw) and she’s recorded a concert for MTV, she’s fine! Leave the girl alone. Many artists have lip-synced and used a back-track, i don’t see anything on them!

  17. skintightjeans June 9, 2012

    PUH-LEEEZE! This b**** is a fraud and a flop.

  18. Saetana June 9, 2012

    Does she expect us to believe she is singing live because she has a microphone in her hand? Yeah right, we all heard how badly she sings standing still so there is no way she was singing live whilst dancing – she lipsynched to a pre-recorded vocal, a hand mike over the mouth covers a multitude of sins (she isn’t a very good lipsyncher either, even with the mike covering her mouth most of the time I spotted her out of sync on more than one occasion). I’d have more respect for her if she admitted she lipsynched rather than trying to pretend she always sings live ;o)

  19. Putitdownforbrandy June 9, 2012

    I see. So she can’t sing standing still but were supposed to believe she can sing dancing? The uk must have some pretty low standards because she can’t even move her lips in time with the song. I really can’t with this woman.

    • the real xoxo June 9, 2012

      the UK hate her. her jubilee performance was slated by everyone over the age of 18. she was huge here in 2008/09 because of x factor but not many people care about her anymore. we have jessie j, emeli sande, adele, ed sheeran instead of cheryl cole.

  20. AYO June 9, 2012

    I just wish TGJ would keep it consistent, you slam Rihanna for poor vocals and beg her to at least put on a performance, then you slam Cheryl for doing just that, performing! You go on and on about her lip synching but you don’t pull people up like Chris Brown for doing it or the many other great artist before for him that have done so, then you have the audacity to call that weak ass perfomance Justin Bieber did on Germany’s Next Top Model good, come on. Cheryl is not a great vocalist and no one is denying that but give credit where it’s due she does know how to perform.

  21. bLaine kelley June 9, 2012

    am i the only who who thinks she swagger jacked the hell out of Rihanna’s,
    “where have you been” choreography?

  22. TerenceBarber June 9, 2012

    Who the hell cares if she lip synced ? SHE DANCED HER FREAKING ASS OFF !!
    This site doesn’t seem to care when Britney, Janet or Nicki does it.
    I don’t even like Cheryl that much, but i can sure tell when an artist is actually putting some effort into a performance…and she totally does !!

    • skintightjeans June 9, 2012

      Well then she needs to put as her profession DANCER instead of SINGER then.

  24. Gilberto June 9, 2012

    I don’t give A for efforts. She can’t sing. It’s a fact. I honestly think it’s better see her lip-synching than hearing awful vocals like Katy Perry’s and Rihanna’s. If you can’t sing, you can’t sing. The fact you at least sing live is B*******. Bad vocals are bad vocals no matter what excuse you use. If you only sing off-key and out of breath, then turn the damn microphone off.
    She has a great stage presence and some swagger. I enjoyed the performance. It wasn’t THAT bad, she knows how to work the stage. She is definitely a better performer than Katy Perry, Britney, Rihanna and Nicki.

  25. Nai June 9, 2012

    No shade but if she is trying to be the next… Britney Spears for the UK (maybe?) then she is on her way. Now, before you Brit stans take my neck, I know that Brit was that bit*h back in the day when it came to performing, but we all have to start somewhere. And maybe this is what it could be for Cheryl. I am not particularly impressed by Cole’s voice but it’s radio and pop friendly (as was Britney’s).

    Also, perhaps Cole’s priorities changed. Maybe when she first started as a singer she really wanted to be a singer/songwriter or what have you. However when she realized her earning potential in other markets (i.e.: beauty, fashion, etc.) her choices changed? Cole is a very pretty girl. She is usually well styled. She looks great on mag covers. She is building a strong brand for herself. She is doing her job. Perhaps that is what she is being paid to do. If someone were to give me a bag of fabulous weave, great makeup and outfits, endorsement deals, hosting opportunities, and the means to take care of my family, I would gladly mime/live mic/lip sync and dance behind a mic as opposed to my call centre job. Lol.

  26. Isabelle June 9, 2012

    Sorry, you deaf people, but again, this was live. If you can’t hear the difference between the studio track and this, I sugges you get your ears checked up.

  27. Saetana June 9, 2012

    It was a PRE-RECORDED “live” vocal, i.e. specially recorded for the show and then lipsynched to – its a common way of trying to fool people into thinking the artist really is singing live.
