Cheryl Cole: I'm No Mariah Carey

Cheryl Cole has admitted that her vocal ability may not be as good as some of her idols.

The 'Call My Name' singer has been criticised by some quarters of late after her performance with Gary Barlow at the Diamond Jubilee concert, as well as claims that she mimed during her The Voice UK appearance.

Cole explained that she feels the "emotion" of a song is more important than the quality of her vocals.

"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," she is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"It's making people feel what you're singing about. My new album is designed to entertain and I know when I take to the stage and I see a million little lights it really is game time."

Cole also described herself as "bullet proof", and said that she has improved as a recording artist with each album.

"I've grown as a person and an artist - you can hear that in my music," she claimed. "I feel brand new.

"I'm bullet proof. I feel as hard as the times I've had but I think everything happens for a reason, even if you can't always say what that reason is.

"On the first album I was really nervous after seven years with Girls Aloud. I had to step forward on my own and prove myself.

"Now I have had two number one albums so I feel I know what I'm doing. I fit into my own shoes now and I'm simply not worried anymore." (lol)

Cheryl Cole will embark on a UK arena tour in October to promote her new album.
