London, Oct 11: Cheryl Cole has revealed that her first meeting with Nicole Scherzinger on the sets of 'The X Factor' in the UK didn't go off too well.
The former Pussycat Doll apparently gushed over Cole, telling her she was pretty, in a way she describes as "really embarrassing."
Even worse, she sang Cole's hit, 'Promise This,' to her.
"It was just so awkward," the Mirror quoted her as saying.
She then likens it to singing 'Baby, One More Time' right up in Britney's face, quipping: "Can you image how weird that would be?"
The second meeting was also weird.
This time, just weeks before Scherzinger got her claws on Cole's position, the pair met again on set on 'X Factor US' - and this time, she was singing her own songs.
"I found that a bit crazy and odd," Cheryl, 29, continues in her book My Story.
As the 34-year-old singer warmly welcomed her, she jokes: "I wasn't sure the feeling was mutual." (ANI)
