Dannii Minogue speaks out about the BRIT nominations

Australian pop star and X Factor judge Dannii Minogue has given her opinion on this year's BRIT Award nominations.

She spoke exclusively to AOL Music and explained that fellow judge Cheryl Cole would be the perfect winner for the Best British Female category she's up for:

"Cheryl Cole has stormed the charts with her records and beguiled us all with her charm,"

"I love that her lyrics are passionate and personal - they get me every time."

Cole is also nominated in the Best British Single category alongside the 2010 X Factor winner, Matt Cardle, whom Minogue personally mentored:

"The most exciting for me has to be the Matt Cardle nomination for 'When We Collide',"

"I would love to see him collecting an award for this monster single. It couldn't happen to a nicer person - this is your year Mr Cardle!"
