This week, I wrote about X Factor judge Cheryl Cole’s desire for fame in America. Well, it may look like her desperation was for a good cause. It seems as though the question being asked often, “who is Cheryl Cole?” may have cost her her judging position on the new FOX fall series.
Even though Cheryl is a famed singer and judge of X Factor in the UK, her star hasn’t found a way to shine very brightly in America. TMZ broke the story but very few details seem to be available. I’m sure that as the story develops, so will the specifics. So if Cheryl is out, then who is in? Apparently, Nicole Scherzinger was set to co-host the show is ready to fill in the void.
Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid are still set to be in their spots without change as they continue to film auditions in Los Angeles. Nicole does have experience in the matter. She is one of the permanent judges on NBC’s The Sing-Off and even subbed in for Cheryl Cole on the UK X Factor before.
Simon Cowell and FOX have yet to comment on the news so hopefully we’ll hear some concrete details soon. It sounds like Nicole Scherzinger has had some pretty impressive power on the show. When High School Musical star Corbin Bleu was up for the co-hosting gig with her, she told FOX to nix him and go with Steve Jones. It looks like they listened to her. Do you think she had anything to do with Cheryl’s early X Factor departure?
