Cheryl gets support from Girls Aloud bandmates

Nicola Roberts was very proud of Cheryl Cole after her appearance on the Britain’s Got Talent final over the weekend.

Cheryl, 30, performed new single Crazy Stupid Love with Tinie Tempah during the live show on Saturday night and BFF Nicola watched proudly from the side of the stage.

‘At Britain’s Got Talent earlier for my gorgeousness performing ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ with the lovely @tiniegram,’ Nicola, 28, captioned a photo on Instagram.

‘Incredible performance Bella 😻 @ladyccole’

Pregnant Kimberley Walsh, 32, also joined her Girls Aloud bandmates at the show.

Cheryl‘s friends might have enjoyed her raunchy set, during which she twerked and flaunted her toned abs in a tiny top, but it didn’t go down well with some viewers.

‘just caught up on Cheryl Cole’s performance on last night’s #BGT and feeling so let down! 😔,’ one fan Tweeted.

‘was so embarrassing to watch,’ another wrote on Instagram.

Several Twitter users even accused Chezza of miming but a spokesperson has denied the rumours.

Cheryl did sing live with additional backing vocals on the chorus,’ the rep tells The Hits Radio.
