Cheers Simon: Poor Cheryl (Or Should We Say Kermit) is Trending

X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini had a tough time of it on this evening's live shows.

The judge rocked out in a one-shoulder green dress in keeping with the show's 1980s theme... however TV mogul Simon Cowell was quick to dub her 'Kermit' (as in the frog, just in case you didn't get it) and the new nickname went global within seconds.

We're not sure how we feel about her dress, but Kermit is definitely a tad harsh in our eyes..nonetheless, some of these tweets are hilarious!

Cheryl defended herself by later saying, "Simon, there seems to be more than one muppet on this panel tonight."

Couple all of this with some epic 1980s pics of Simon and co and it's truly been another interesting night on the X Factor.
