Black Eyed Peas sing Cheryl Cole's praises

During their appearance at Radio 1's Big Weekend, Black Eyed Peas spoke about Cheryl Cole's role on X Factor USA and gave their support to Britain's sweet heart. 

The 'Boom Boom Pow' stars, including Will.i.Am who is a dear friend of Cole's, told The Sun newspaper that she will shine in America because she "connects well with people". 

"She's beautiful - not only on the outside but on the inside. She has a great personality and I think she connects well with people. She is a great artist and she's part of the family."

Frontwoman and solo artist, Fergie, added enthusiastically:

"She's also very smart and not afraid to speak her mind. People want to hear the truth so she will do well."

The 'Parachute' singer is already adapting to life in the U.S and has begun filming the series, but long-time confidante and collaborator Will.i.Am explained that she will have no trouble settling in:

"It's going great with her. She's got a bright future ahead - no question."
