Black Eyed Peas star says Michael Jackson planned to duet with Chezza

Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am has revealed that the late Michael Jackson was keen to duet with Cheryl Cole.

Will used to talk to Michael about Cheryl and is gutted the perfect pop pairing will never be.

‘I told him Cheryl was the hottest thing in the UK and could sing and dance – basically, she was the complete package,’ says Will, 35.

‘He would have worked with her, no doubt, and it would have been something special.

Michael was excited about everything I told him about Cheryl.

‘It could have been one of the great collaborations of recent history.’

Though X Factor judge Cheryl won’t get to make music with Jacko – who died in June 2009Will insists she isn’t short of options.

‘There are still lots of great artists waiting to work with Cheryl when she gets over to the USThe Peas, Justin Bieber and Usher,’ Will tells The Sun.

‘But her and Michael would have created something that would make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.’
