What happened here? Is Cheryl Cole dropping out as an X Factor judge and Nicole Scherzinger taking her place according to TMZ. What the…

Huge shakeup at Simon Cowell’s new show “X-Factor” — TMZ has learned singer Cheryl Cole will no longer be a judge … and will be replaced by ex-“Pussycat Dolls” member Nicole Scherzinger.

It’s unclear why Cheryl is out — but we’re told the replacement happened very recently.

Nicole was originally supposed to co-host the show with Steve Jones when it debuts in September — but now, she’ll be sitting on the judge’s panel alongside Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and LA Reid.

Calls to Cowell’s camp have not been returned.
