Exhibiting her universal charm to American reporters, many of whom still hardly knew she was (although that will surely soon change), reality show veteran Cheryl seemed extremely relaxed, and said she wasn't worried about Stateside audiences embracing her. "Not really, but only because it's this [judging] side of me--if it was my music, then yes, absolutely [I'd be worried]," she said. "But I feel like the contestants are the ones with the nerves, and it's about me helping someone else with their dream."
Cheryl also didn't seem worried about American viewers being able to comprehend her regional Northern English accent, pooh-poohing rumors that she's working with a dialect coach. "I would never, ever change how I speak, and I think Americans understand that, and I quite like that fact," she said in her heavy, but not at all indecipherable, Newcastle brogue.
