The Girls Aloud singer travelled to the US recently where she wowed record executives, leaving them desperate for her to sign a solo contract.
A source told Britain’s Hello! magazine: “When Cheryl came over to Los Angeles she definitely wasn’t just there to enjoy the Grammys parties. She had meetings with Interscope label bosses which is a subsidiary of the Universal Music Group that represents Girls Aloud. Bosses seem confident that she could become a huge solo star, in the mould of Beyonce Knowles or Nelly Furtado.”
Cheryl’s fellow judge on UK TV talent show The X Factor Simon Cowell is keen to help the 25-year-old singer become a worldwide star. He said: “I would say she’s a star, and she’ll work as well in America as she does here. She’s definitely got a shot.”
US publicist Howard Bragman is confident Cheryl will be a Stateside success if she has Simon’s support. He said: “Simon is one of the biggest star-makers of his generation, and if you’ve got him in your corner, you are in very good standing.
“If she wants to be a solo singer, and Simon gave her a guest slot on his show American Idol, she’ll have 30 million people immediately familiar with her music. Simon Cowell’s the best fan club you can have.”
