X Factor fans convinced Cheryl was snubbed by Nile Rodgers after performance

X Factor fans lost it tonight after legend Nile Rodgers appeared to snub Cheryl after her performance tonight.

This evening, the 35-year-old took to the X Factor stage for the first time in years.

Her raunchy performance, unfortunately, failed to impress – including one of the judges themselves.

Soul legend Nile, who is filling in for Robbie Williams, appeared not to stand up after her performance.

Fans flocked to Twitter in shock, with one tweeting: "Haha Nile Rogers is VERY cool about denying Cheryl a standing ovation – every performance should be judged on its merits after all! #XFactor."
