Cheryl Cole is reportedly gearing up to perform on The Voice in order to "annoy" former boss Simon Cowell, according to Will.i.am.
Simon and Cheryl's friendship has been on rocky terms since he unceremoniously sacked her from her role as a judge on X Factor USA. Her career is now being managed by close friend Will.i.am who has been trying to get her a performance spot on the UK version of The Voice.
"I want her on the Voice. I mean why not? That would really p*** the big man off wouldn’t it," he told The Mirror.
Will - who is also a judge on the talent contest which will air in March - says that Cheryl is preparing to take the music world by storm with her new material.
"This is her year by the way - Cheryl is back! You all gonna love her new music - it’s on it, on the money," he said.
Is it a wise move for Cheryl to annoy the most powerful man on TV?
