Cheryl Cole emerged as a breakout star from Girls Aloud, the beauty who stood above the rest. Her captivating charm made her the perfect pop star, and her above-average voice never slowed her down -- especially not when she became the fourth judge on the monstrously successful U.K. television program The X-Factor. For 2009's 3 Words, she teamed up with an established hitmaker, will.i.am, famous for his work with the Black Eyed Peas, and with him Cole strung together a solid collection of sparkily pop hits.

    AMAZING!

    I love Cheryl Cole! Love, love, love, love, love, love her voice and she is so beautiful. She is so amazing and her voice is candy. She is also in a group from the UK called Girls Aloud. They are also amazing. The best track is probably Parachute. The B-side to 3 Words is called Boys which is equally amazing. I hope that Cheryl and Girls Aloud can make the transition to America. Everyone should know about her and Girls Aloud. Buy this album and every Girls Aloud album. The best Girls Aloud album is Tangled Up. I can't wait for the next album from Cheryl and Girls Aloud. You won't regret spending your money on these albums!!!!!!!!!!!!!
