She had considered titles like Three Syllables, although the strongest contender was Unveiled as Cheryl "felt like she didn't have any protection without the girls [Girls Aloud]" and because it correlated with the veil on the album cover. The album begins with its title track, a duet with and Cheryl's favourite song on the album.

Voice and stage

Cheryl has a mezzo-soprano range. Cheryl spoke about her vocal ability saying "I am very aware of my ability, I know I’m no Mariah Carey but I think the emotion in the song is what matters."

Whilst performing "Fight for this Love" in 2009 on The X Factor, media speculated that the performance was mimed, something that Cheryl denied though she admitted to having some pre-recorded vocals to help the live performance. In 2010 during Cheryl's second performance on The X Factor she "showcased her vocal and dancing skills with an energetic, raunchy routine that earned a standing ovation from her fellow judges." Similar to her 2009 performance of "Fight for This Love" on The X Factor, the media speculated whether Cheryl lip synced or not. An ITV spokesperson insisted that Cheryl did not mime, although the performance was pre-recorded. On 26 May 2012, it was reported that Cheryl would perform "Call My Name" with live vocals on The Voice UK, following allegedly pre-recorded performances that occurred the previous year on The X Factor UK.

Following the broadcast, Cheryl received mixed comments from viewers, with a few accusing the singer of lip synching, while others, including pop artists Emma Bunton and, praised the performance. In an interview with BBC News, Cheryl addressed the negative comments, and said that "if you think my live vocal sounds so good it must be mimed, I'm happy, I take it as a compliment." She performed the track again on The Graham Norton Show on 8 June 2012, and was also accused of lip synching.

Music and Influences

I know she gets a lot of criticism, too, about what she wears and what she sings about, but she is so free," she explained. "She doesn’t give two f**ks. I love that in her. I love that sense of freedom about her. She’s gorgeous and free. A perfect pop star." Cheryl  also cites American singer Mary J Blidge as an influence stating so Blidge's music has helped her "Mary J. Blige's song Just Fine is my feel good song. Mary's voice sounds so grown up and you can hear that she has experienced a lot in her life, her songs help me with every heartache."
Cheryl has also influenced other artists, one being American singer Selena Gomez. In October, 2010, Gomez revealed that Cole was an influential person for her saying "She's a big influence on me," the star said. "I picked up her CD and they gave me Girls Aloud things and a DVD of her, and her music got me through my whole movie [that I was filming]. She made me feel better, I just love her music and I think she's a really nice person. She's been through a lot, but she carries herself with a lot of class and I love that."
Cole has become a recognised and photographed style icon; referred to as a fashionista by the press. Cole has been described as the one of the best dressed women in the world. Fashion magazine British Vogue praised Cole's style saying "Her wardrobe choices have become as successful as her singles - while filming for X Factor, she had fashion fans watching her every sartorial move and was snapped wearing a string of fashion-forward outfits from Givenchy and Preen, to McQueen and Missoni."

Cheryl Cole, yeah she's hot, and I love her tattoos.', Socialite Paris Hilton complimented Cole saying 'I love the way Cheryl dresses, and she's so sweet. We hung out a bit at the Grammys and I just find her beautiful and down to earth.'

I hear she is an absolute darling.' Rihanna also spoke on her admiration for Cheryl 'Like, how do you have a face like that, with hair like that and dimples, and a body like that, that's proportioned like that. And you have a successful career, something about that is not right.' Cheryl was referenced in Lily Allen's "Cheryl Tweedy", a B-side to her 2006 debut single "Smile".
