Cheryl accused of ‘messing up’ routine as she appears to forget moves during Greatest Dancer opening dance

THE Greatest Dancer viewers have criticised Cheryl’s “amateur” performance in the opening dance number for the first live instalment of the BBC One dance show.

Fans also questioned whether the former X Factor judge had made a mistake at the beginning of the routine, where she was joined by her fellow mentors Oti Mabuse and Matthew Morrison.

Taking to Twitter moments after Cheryl made her debut in tonight’s episode, fans accused the mother-of-one of “forgetting” her choreography.

One wrote: “#GreatestDancer opening let down by Cheryl there, out of time and just looked awkward!!!”

Another said: “So cringe watching Cheryl try to keep up with Matt and Oti and totally forget the choreography…… #awks”.

A third tweeted: “Cheryl f***ed up the choreography and she’s a mentor… #awkward #thegreatestdancer”.

Cheryl’s performance in the opening routine was criticised by viewers

Others simply accused Cheryl of not being up to her co-stars standards, writing: “Oh, Cheryl. Being on stage with Oti and Matthew does not highlight your strengths.”

Another said: “Cheryl demonstrating how absolutely not to dance on The Greatest Dancer, cheers for nothing.”

Tonight’s live show opened with Cheryl, Oti and Matthew bursting onto the stage to dance together, with all three judges having the same routine to learn.

However, Cheryl seemingly stumbled over the moves and lost track of the steps as she tried to keep up with her co-stars.

Each of the mentors then danced with their final three, putting on a show as they introduced the finalists.

The Greatest Dancer is Simon Cowell’s new talent show that sees hopefuls competing to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.

The programme aims to discover the best dancers from all sorts of backgrounds including Bollywood, ballet, jazz, jive, tap and tango.

In addition to Cheryl, Oti, and Matthew, Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon and Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo appear in the show as hosts.
