Cheryl Cole’s X Factor Lap Dance Undoes Whitney Houston’s Dress

coco-lloyd-cheryl-coleHURRAH for the X Factor’s Cheryl Cole, whose singing over a backing tape of her, er, singing was a sensation on the show that still presents itself as a singing contest.

“It’s the “X Factor Babe’s Triumph”, screams the Daily Star’s front page. “CHERYL STEALS THE SHOW”. Cheryl has the “THE SEX FACTOR” (Mail) and the “WOW Factor” (Mirror) as she performs in an outfit from Kandy Rain’s bottomless draw.

Also singing on the X Factor was Whitney Houston, dressed in an elegant long gown. The Sun says she suffered an “embarrassing wardrobe malfunction with her frock”:

The six-time Grammy winner, backed by a troupe of male dancers, pulled a face when she realised the [dress] strap was sticking out.

Someone should have told Houston that you don’t need a wardrobe malfunction to be British pop star, you just need to come on stage dressed as a lap dancer and get mum, dad and the kids to clap along.

Get this from the Mail:

She was dreading performing on the same night as music legend Whitney Houston, but at least Cheryl Cole managed to keep her clothes on.

Cheryl had less clothes to keep on. But, of course, the difference is that while Cheryl Cole is declared a national treasure (did you vote on that decision?), Whitney Houston is a woman with a past. The Sun explains:

Judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue gave her a standing ovation when she finished – but Sun readers phoned in to call the performance “appalling”… And when Dermot asked Whitney about the standard of this year’s X Factor contestants she paused for several seconds, before saying: “They are young. They have room to grow. Practice, practice, practice.”

She paused because a) she was thinking of something positive to say about a gaggle of end-of the-pier acts (the pier at Weston –Super-Mare); or b) “Whitney admitted to US talk show host Oprah Winfrey last month that she used to smoke marijuana and crack cocaine. She got clean of drugs after going to rehab”?

Cole got clean from assaulting a toilet attendant. And she never paused because she’s got a backing tape.
