Cheryl Cole is going to go "colour crazy" with her fashion choices for the US version of 'The X Factor'.

The British singer - who was named as one of the show's judges last week and turned up to the first auditions wearing an outfit which consisted of a bright orange top, purple trousers and a turquoise belt - says she wants to make an impression on American audiences by wowing them with her colourful style.

She said: "My style and image is already going to be different as I'm British and we have different taste anyway. But I absolutely love colours at the minute. It make everything feel bright and alive, so I am going to go colour crazy while I can. I love loads of designers like Diane Von Furstenberg, Philip Lim, Miu Miu and Stella Mccartney, but the list goes on and on to be honest. There are some lovely clothes out there."

As well as wowing viewers with her style, Cheryl, 27, says she is hoping she can rely on her experience as a judge on the UK version to help her win over the US.

She told Britain's Grazia magazine: "All I can do is take my experiences and rely on my instincts."
