X Factor 1 – It’s OFFICIAL: Nicole Scherzinger Will Be Replacing Cheryl Cole On The X Factor Judging Panel

According to Fox and X producers FremantleMedia and Syco TV, Cheryl Cole is officially out as a judge on the upcoming U.S. X Factor and co-host Nicole Scherzinger is in. Here is the official Statement from TV Line.

“Nicole Scherzinger will be replacing Cheryl Cole on the judging panel of The X Factor. Nicole will join Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul on their search across America to find the next global superstar or group to win the life-changing $5 million dollar recording deal. Nicole has previously joined Simon Cowell as a guest judge on The X Factor for the UK version of the show in 2010. Steve Jones will act as sole host of The X Factor.”

Still no reason is given as to why Cheryl has been ousted. In our earlier postings over the weekend it was speculated Cheryl was working out a deal to stay. Apparently, no deal was reached (if in fact it was true).

Oh well. Time to move on and put this media circus behind us! Atleast we finally have some official word one way or the other. I do think it’s sad though if they fired Cheryl over her accent. I still think there has to be more to this story which we may never know on?

Thanks to @Donamadrina at Twitter for the heads up on this news.

      Interesting…but what about the “Sing Off” she is a judge on that show as well for a different network.

      Good question Amanda! I have no idea on her role on the “Sing Off”. If you hear anything, be sure to let us know.
