X-Factor judges stick together

Dannii Minogue says Cheryl Cole deserve to win a BRIT award next month.

Dannii's fellow X-Factor judge is up for best British Female at the event on February 15th.

She said: "Cheryl Cole has stormed the charts with her records and beguiled us all with her charm. I love that her lyrics are passionate and personal - they get me every time."

However Dannii will have split loyalties when it comes best British Single. Cheryl is up for 'Parachute' by Dannii's protege Matt Cardle is up for 'When We Collide'.

Dannii will also have eyes on the best International Female as sister Kylie could win that one.
