Cheryl's performance on The X Factor 2014 last night hasn't gone down well with many viewers.

It was revealed into the lead up to Cheryl taking to the stage that she would NOT be performing live.

A spokesperson confirmed “Due to a big set and a costume change, Cheryl’s performance needs to be pre-recorded as-live earlier in the evening as there logicistically [sic] isn’t time to build and then remove the set within real time.

“Sunday night’s show is only an hour long and there is always a lot to schedule in.”

However many viewers also reckon that the Girls Aloud star was miming her vocals too, while her so-called 'toilet paper skirt' also came in for a bashing.

One viewer joked: "Cheryl has surely gotta be in the bottom 2 tonight?"

And another quipped: "Even though she's miming this still sounds out of tune... "

A third added: "Cheryl's got some toilet paper stuck to her skirt"

But despite the comments Cheryl's new single I Don't Care has shot up the charts with TWO versions now in the top five on iTunes, including at Number 1.
