Cheryl Cole's Niece Auditions For X-factor, Gets Rejected
Melissa actually performed one of her famous auntie's hits, the No.1 single 'Promise This', though her rendition split the judges. Neither Gary Barlow nor Tulisa Contostavlos were convinced by the vocals, though Nicole and Louis Walsh were keen to see more in the next round. After minutes of deliberations, it was eventually decided that Melissa wouldn't be heading to boot camp, with Tulisa telling her, "You have a sweet voice but it's a no", adding "I'm dreading the next time I see Cheryl". Scherzinger gave Armstrong a little advice before she left the stage, somewhat bizarrely recommending that she took up country music, or joined a girl band.
Melissa was said to be "crushed" after failing to make the grade, explaining that she had never plucked up the courage to audition for the Itv show before because of her connection to the Girls Aloud star. Cheryl scored her latest No.1 single last week, with 'Call My Name' from her third studio album 'A Million Lights'.
