Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh reportedly teased Cheryl Cole about her music during The X Factor auditions.
When a Romanian male model called Adrian had the audience in stitches with his tuneless, camp performance of her single Fight For This Love from her 3 Words solo album, Cheryl laughed that he had made a "great song choice", the Sun reports.
But Louis allegedly quipped: "That was about as good as you can do it live", leaving Cheryl stony-faced as he and Simon sniggered.
The 26-year-old singer was criticised during last year's X Factor when she performed Fight For This Love, but pre-recorded some of the vocals.
Cheryl's music with Girls Aloud also appeared to take a bashing from her fellow judges at the London auditions.
When a raunchy girl group, called Madame Butterfly, impressed the judges Simon asked the foursome: "I bet you only like American groups, like Destiny's Child."
Cheryl reportedly said nothing and one of the singers eventually said they liked Girls Aloud too.
