Why so glum? Miserable Cheryl Cole can't manage a smile despite having two acts going through to The X Factor final

By Daily Mail Reporter

Glum: Cheryl Cole was spotted looking miserable as she left the X Factor studios in Wembly, London, after last night's show

She might be branded the nation’s sweetheart and have the world at her feet, but Cheryl Cole looked miserable as she left the X Factor studios after last night’s results show.

The 27-year-old couldn’t manage a hint of a smile as she walked out of the Wembly studio in north London while talking on her mobile phone.

Despite having reportedly signed a £3million deal to join the judging panel of the U.S. version of The X Factor and having two acts going through to the show’s final, Cheryl still looked out of sorts.

She’s even received more praise from one of her biggest fans, who says she’ll be a massive success in the U.S.

The Black Eyed Peas star, who performed on last night’s X Factor told the Mirror: ‘Cheryl’s going to be great in the U.S. I’m looking forward to her coming over.

‘It don’t matter that she’s British – she could be Chinese, Mexican, Cantonese or whatever… she’s got great songs and looks fantastic, so that’s all that matters.

‘She’s going to be a massive success over here. Everything she touches turns to gold and I’m here to look after her so she’s going to be absolutely fine.’

Sullen: Despite having her two acts going through to the X Factor final, Cheryl is noticeably stressed and exhausted

But that doesn’t seem to be enough for the Geordie, who looked noticeably upset that her protégé Cher Lloyd was in the bottom two again last night.

Despite being saved by fellow judges Dannii Minogue and Simon Cowell, who voted for Cher to proceed to the final while Mary Byrne went home, Cheryl was clearly upset by Cher Lloyd’s lack of public votes.

But even if Cher doesn't win the series, reports say she's set to collaborate with her mentor regardless of her place in the final.

Simon Cowell confirmed that Cher and Cheryl will duet on a track together, which will feature on the 17-year-old first album, the Daily Star reported.

But the pressure seems to be mounting for Cheryl and even before the live Sunday night show, the judge looked sullen as she entered the studios in the afternoon.

With her eye-catching, bright red earrings and equally boldly-coloured boots, her festive outfit wasn't enough to distract from her brooding expression.

She finished off her smart yet casual look of jeans, T-shirt and tuxedo jacket with a flash of bright red nail polish, to try and lift her spirits.

But the Promise This singer had clearly left her festive cheer at home as she arrived at Fountain Studios.

Getting out of her car, the judge and singer glowered at the waiting photographers before heading in to get started on last night's episode of the ITV show.

And it emerged yesterday that 17-year-old Cher Lloyd exploded at a member of the show's production staff and One Direction's Louis Tomlinson during rehearsals for Saturday night's episode.

Described by X Factor choreographer Brian Friedman as 'a meltdown', it is believed the teenage hopeful had to be taken aside and calmed by mentor Cole after screaming at a crew member, 'get out of my face'.

Lloyd was reportedly upset about the introduction to her song and her outfit for the performance.

Arriving yesterday, the contestant also looked strained and was typically casually dressed in a purple puffa jacket, jeans and Doc Marten boots.

She - like her mentor - did not smile for the paparazzi.

However, Lloyd must be feeling a surge of confidence in her ability after Simon Cowell admitted on Saturday night's show he was a 'huge fan'.

Meanwhile, One Direction, Matt Cardle and Mary Byrne arrived at the studios looking as laid-back as ever.

Smiling for the cameras and wrapped up warm, they did not appear to be worried about the verdict on their performances, which evidently led to Mary Byrne being voted off.
