Confirmed: Cheryl Cole To Judge X Factor USA

It’s been as good as done for months now, but we can finally say it’s official. Cheryl Cole, Simon Cowell’s co-judge on the original X Factor, has been confirmed as the third judge when the series premieres this fall on FOX. The news was announced via FOX’s official Twitter account for X Factor and no press release has been made just yet.


Not sure it’s SHOUT worthy news, but good to have it out there and in writing.

You probably haven’t heard much of Cole as she’s a UK pop star, but if things go her way then she’ll end up with a whole new music career on this side of the Atlantic.

Corbin Bleu May Co-Host X Factor 2011

Corbin Bleu fans rejoice! Okay, now both of you sit down. Bleu is rumored to be the X Factor 2011 co-host along side Nicole Scherzinger when the show premieres this fall, says Entertainment Weekly:

EW has learned High School Musical actor-singer Corbin Bleu is close to joining the competition series as co-host, alongside previously reported co-host finalist, Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger.

Sources emphasize that neither Bleu or Scherzinger are locked in, but both are close to signing on with the series.

EW also supports what we reported earlier, that Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole would be X Factor judges three and four.

No matter what happens, Simon Cowell has about ten days to work it all out because filming begins May 8th! Come on FOX, get it together already.

Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole to Join Simon Cowell On X Factor USA

Simon has delivered on his promise two months late, but we’ll take it. Cowell revealed that Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole will join him and LA Reid as judges on the upcoming premiere season of X Factor 2011 in the USA production.

Nikki Finke received the confirmation from Simon himself this weekend and promises more details on top of what she’s offered up.

[Simon] has made up his mind to bring back Paula Abdul beside him and to add a Brit singer convicted of assault who’s unknown to American audiences, Cheryl Cole. Of course, Cowell was once an unknown here, too. I understand from Cowell that negotiations for Abdul’s deal hasn’t even started and that Cole’s deal isn’t quite done yet.

Snagging Paula was a no brainer and should really put a dent in American Idol’s armor. Simon’s big challenge will be to convince US audiences that Cheryl Cole is someone they want to get to know. Considering her potential for expanding her musical career over here I think the move could turn in to a gold mine for everyone involved.

But, as always, nothing is final until the ink has dried.

What do you think of the X Factor judging news?
