Cheryl Cole is not actually singing live this Sunday on The X Factor 2014 Results show (2nd November).
This isn’t new for the X Factor to pre-record performances as its happened in the past… But from judge Cheryl, really?
Apparently Cheryl will record her ‘live’ performance of her new single ‘I Don’t Care’ earlier in the day hours before the results show goes live on ITV.
A spokesperson for the show said:
“Due to a big set and a costume change, Cheryl’s performance needs to be pre-recorded as-live earlier in the evening as there logicistically [sic] isn’t time to build and then remove the set within real time.
“Sunday night’s show is only an hour long and there is always a lot to schedule in.”
Basically the scale of the performance is too big for the 1 hour show…
The X Factor returns this weekend (1st-2nd November) with a Halloween Special.
