Cheryl Cole’s Night In was a one hour television special, starring British singer Cheryl Cole and hosted by Holly Willoughby. The TV Special Cheryl Cole’s Night In premiered on ITV and featured a host of performances from Cheryl Cole herself, as well other musical artists such as Will.I.Am, Rihanna, Will Young, Snow Patrol and Alexandra Burke. Holly Willoughby also conducted interviews with Cheryl, Will.I.Am. and Alexandra. The special acted as a lead-in to the final episode of the 6th series of The X Factor 2009, in which Cheryl Cole is a judge.
Cheryl opened her TV Special with a performance of Fight For This Love, the first single from her debut album titled “3 Words”. This was followed by a performance from Rihanna, who performed her latest single “Russian Roulette”. Rihanna also offered Cheryl to tour with her on her “Rated R” tour in the U.S.A. as well as her European leg of the tour.
During the interview with Holly, Cheryl revealed that she had originally been set to be a judge on Britain’s Got Talent but with some last minute turn around of events, she ended up on the X Factor. Holly also talked to Cheryl about her friend and judge on the X Factor Simon Cowell, and Cheryl said he gives her a hard time as well, often judging her on how she judges others! Cheryl and Holly Willoughby also chatted with last year’s X Factor winner Alexandra Burke.
The interview was followed by a top-notch performance of “Bad Boys” from last year’s winner Alexandra Burke, who coincidentally was also mentored by Cheryl.
Followed by Alexandra’s performance, Holly chatted with her and her once-mentor Cheryl Cole. Holly and Cheryl talk to Alexandra about how far she has come since winning the show and what it felt like singing a duet with Beyonce a year ago and how she still remembers it like it was yesterday.
Then Cheryl and Will.I.Am give an exclusive first-time live performance of 3 Words, the title track from Cheryl Cole’s debut solo album. Holly talked to Cheryl and Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas about their collaboration on Cheryl’s first solo album, 3 Words and how Will.I.Am pushed Cheryl to go solo.
To end the tv special and looking gorgeous, Cheryl performed a song from her new solo record titled 3 Words, with Derek Hough, who is a top dancer on Dancing With The Stars, which is a US version of the UK hit-dance show Strictly.
