Cole: Miming jibes are a compliment
Cheryl Cole has brushed off accusations that she was miming on The Voice.
The 28-year-old told the BBC she was flattered by the attention her Call My Name performance had attracted.
She said: "If you think my live vocal sounds so good it must be mimed, I'm happy. I take it as a compliment."
The former Girls Aloud singer also said she's been enjoying answering critics directly on Twitter.
She said: "I don't know what I was doing before Twitter, I really don't - burying my head in the sand?
"I never answer back unprovoked but I'm always answering something back. I don't have any middle-men now. I've got my voice back."
