After all the back and forth these past two days, which I didn’t report on…Cheryl Cole is officially off The X Factor judges’ table, and Nicole Scherzinger is in.
Fox and Freemantle issued this statement:
FOX, FREMANTLEMEDIA NORTH AMERICA AND SYCO TV today confirm 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.
I love how much drama this show has and it hasn’t even started. Pretty amazing. I’m honestly excited for it to premiere.
