There is a British band called Girls Aloud, and their singer is a lady named Cheryl Cole, which, as you might have noticed from looking at the letters, is almost like but not exactly the same as Sheryl Crow.
Cheryl Cole’s bid to get a spot on the judging panel of the US version of The X Factor has apparently hit the skids – as Americans are regularly confusing her with Sheryl Crow. The Girls Aloud singer is looking to land a spot on the TV talent show when it launches in the States next year, despite not having a profile in the country. However, The Sun reports that Cole is regularly being confused with the ‘Soak Up The Sun’ singer.
When asked about Cole, actress and singer Jennifer Hudson told the red top: “Sheryl Crow? No, I’m not familiar with her.”
And that is, to date, the best Jennifer Hudson quote of all time.
