Cheryl Cole Slammed for Refusing a Fellow Singer's Duet Offer

'I said I'm happy to perform but they don't want that,' Rowetta says about the situation that makes her unhappy.

Former "Happy Holidays" singer Rowetta is fuming at after the star asked to use her vocals for an upcoming award show - but snubbed her offer to sing live. Cole wanted to sample Rowetta's dancefloor hit "Be" for a live performance of her single "Fight for This Love" at the upcoming BRIT Awards.

But Rowetta - full name Rowetta Satchell - was furious after record executives informed her that another woman would lip sync her part alongside Cole at the event. Rowetta rants, "Her record company asked to use my sample but wanted an 'anonymous face'. I said I'm happy to perform but they don't want that. Imagine if I wanted to sample Cheryl and got someone to mime her voice. That would never be allowed."

It was revealed last year Rowetta's vocals helped the score a global smash with "Boom Boom Pow", which samples her track "Reach Out".
