We knew it…Cheryl Cole has been confirmed for the US version of ‘X Factor’ after much speculation. I think there is still one spot to fill as a judge and with rumors that Nicole Scherzinger will be host ( she is probably a shoe in). Are you excited to see Cheryl come to the US? Cheryl Cole joins Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid onÂ theÂ judging panel. Cheryl and SimonÂ haveÂ worked together before on the UK’s The X Factor.
British pop superstar Cheryl Cole will join Antonio â€œL.A.â€ Reid and Simon Cowell as a judge on THE X FACTOR, the highly anticipated singing competition series debuting this fall on FOX. Cole, who has sat alongside Cowell as a judge on the U.K. version of â€œThe X Factorâ€ for three years, is a multi-platinum-selling solo artist and a member of Girls Aloud, one of the U.K.â€™s most successful female vocal groups of all time. Cole will join Cowell, Reid and an additional judge (to be announced) as they travel to THE X FACTOR audition cities searching for the next global superstar or breakout music group.
â€œIâ€™m thrilled for Cheryl. She is massively excited about this show, and has been fantastic to work with,â€ said Cowell. â€œShe is also a complete brat! Most importantly, this girl can spot talent.â€
Cole went on to say how excited she is to be doing the US version of X Factor,
â€œIâ€™m so excited to be taking part in the American version of THE X FACTOR. I absolutely love it here in the U.K., and with the talent they have out in America, Iâ€™m sure weâ€™re going to find someone very special. I canâ€™t wait to get started,â€ said Cole. â€œI just canâ€™t decide whether I am more excited to find and nurture the talent or for the unbelievable amount of amusement and entertainment I will have watching Simon doing everything and anything he can to beat me. Heâ€™s tried to beat me for three years in the U.K., and hasnâ€™t even come close. His ego must be so bruised. America is gonna love this.â€
