Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has delighted fans by releasing a stunning acoustic rendition of the lead track from her new album, Only Human.
The black-and-white video, which she has posted on YouTube, comes ahead of the 31-year-old's performance on X Factor's results show on Sunday evening.
With accompaniment only from a piano and minimal backing singers, the acoustic version shows off the singer’s vocals beautifully.

Cheryl, 31, is dressed down in an arty T-shirt and casual clothes with her golden curls in loose waves in the new clip posted on her Vevo channel.
She is seen standing calmly – a far cry from her usual high-octane dance performances – tapping the microphone with her hand as she sings the emotional lyrics, which include: "I've been holding out for some silver in the clouds. It just gets dark, it just gets hard to see. Well you told me go for broke.
"You go first, I'll hold the rope. And make your way down to solid ground with me."
The post comes as a part of her Only Human Sessions, a set of music videos showing the pop star performing the album tracks in the same paired-down way.
However, the former Girls Aloud star returns to her famous glamorous self in the new publicity image that has been unveiled, ahead of the release of her fourth studio album.
