Last night British rapper Tinie Tempah performed on the US version of X Factor, thanks to Simon Cowell. The X Factor judge booked the Pass Out rapper to perform on the show as his single is just about to be released in America.

The performance was watched by millions of US residents and might just be the big move that Tinie’s been looking for in order to break the US. These are the same steps Simon took with Cheryl Cole when she attempted to break state side as well.

Could Tinie be Simon’s new Cheryl? Will he ever be as big in the US as he is in the UK? We wonder.
