Cheryl Cole says miming accusations are a "compliment"
Cheryl Cole has responded to accusations that she mimed a recent live TV performance - and said that the claims are actually a "compliment".
The singer recently performed her latest single 'Call My Name' on TV talent show The Voice UK, but she was faced with accusations that her vocals her mimed.
Speaking to the BBC, Cole refuted the claims and said that she in fact takes it as a "compliment" that some people liken her live vocals to the song's original. She said:
"If you think my live vocal sounds so good it must be mimed, I'm happy. I take it as a compliment."
Cole meanwhile opened up on the beginnings of her solo career - writing a song with will.i.am - which she called the "most daunting thing" she has ever done. She said:
"My first experience after Girls Aloud was writing a song with will.i.am and it was the most daunting thing I've ever done. I was always surrounded by the girls and we had a system I was very much familiar with. To then be with one of the world's biggest producers, being told, 'OK, let's go, you write your bit' - it was really scary."
