Is Chezza Getting The Glee Treatment?!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteSimon CowellCheryl ColeGleeLea MicheleX FactorReality TV

Wow! This could get her exactly the kind of stateside exposure that she needs - ESPECIALLY if she'll be on the judges panel of The X Factor!

Sources close to the production Glee have revealed that series creator Ryan Murphy is apparently so taken with the HAWT Cheryl Cole track Parachute that he's reached out to her people so his cast can perform it on the show toward the beginning of the third season, when she's expected to make her US debut on Simon Cowell's aforementioned reality competition!

A source reveals:

"Murphy thinks 'Parachute' is pop perfection and he knows that Cheryl is going to be a big star in the States. It also helps that UK Glee fans will be aware of the song. He spoke to Cole's people and they agreed to let the track be used. They are now thinking about releasing the song as her debut US single as it will be great exposure for her if used on such a well-loved show such as Glee."

Excellent!

We have to say - this is probably the best marketing plan Chezza's people could have come up with to get people in the States to notice her, and it just fell into their laps!

People are going to LOVE the song - especially if there's a version done by Miz Lea Michele!

And if you haven't heard it already, check out the track and music video (above)!

We've got our fingers crossed, gurl! We'd love to see this pan out!

What do U think?? Will the US love Chezza as much as the UK does?

    Stop flogging this dead horse! Do you ever read the comments section?

    I loved the song and video a year and a half ago! Funny it is going to take GLEE to make it a hit! Kind of a sad thing, but it is the new way! Good song!

    Scraping the barrel much? Just listen to her sing it live on YouTube..it's an eye opener alright. Anything to get Cole's name out there in America. Most comments here show how unpopular she is, Perez Hilton is desperate and his adoration of this woman is unreal. Talk about licking her boots!!

    I think Lea Michele's voice is better suited for the Ingrid Michaelson version.

    she will be a big hit in the states like she is un the uk - her pr people will make sure of that! but make no mistake, she is a very good judge on x factor uk and makes for good tv - but this girl cannot sing to save her life! - please look up her auditions of Popstars the rivals on you tube, trust me - you will get a good laugh!

    I love the idea of her music being played on Glee BUT I don't think Parachute should be a single in the US given that one of the songwriters involved already released it as her US single….so if Cheryl did the same she'd be looked at as unoriginal. I think her single should be something fresh that hasn't been released by another artist.

    I thought Parachute was by Ingrid Michaelson, so even Cheryl's version is a copy. Why don't they just cover Ingrid instead, and give credit where credit is due?

    I like Ingrid's voice better. And if they wanted to cover "pop perfection," they should do a tribute album to Robyn's "Body Talk." Let's be honest…

    I think Lea would sing it better.

    Ingrid Michaelson's version is much better…. Who is this girl anyway?

    I cant believe we're finally getting rid of her, its the best thing ever, i cant stand her and its great when shes gone, Our X factor will be much better.

    This will never be a hit in the States. This girl has been around in the UK for ages, what makes you think she will all of a sudden make it big now? Cause of Glee? Not everyone watches Glee. UK artists are just trying to copy Americans anyways. There is NOTHING original about Cheryl Cole. Plus you can barely understand her when she talks. Some people are just NOT meant to make it big in America…especially when you are competing with huge pop stars like Britney, Katy, and Gaga. Get over it. SHE'S BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i happen to love cheryl cole! shes awesome and i wouldnt be surprised if she does make it over here

    I LOVE that the American composer of Parachute is going to release the single in the States before Chezza Cole! I hope it's a hit and Chezza will look like the desperate bimbo she is. She has NO talent at all and has just been lucky to be in the right place at the right time. She was failing miserably before her husband allegedly cheated on her. That's when she hit the big time as Simon Cowell spotted the stories in the press and backed her all the way. She has NOTHING constructive to say on UK X-Factor and now, according to her, it's all going to be between her and Simon who'll win. Is this Reid bloke useless then?

    To be honest I think Heather Morris could do a better cover of Parachute than Lea. Maybe even Naya Rivera could sing it… I just think the song suits there storyline better.
