BREAKING NEWS TV fans!

Apparently, Cheryl Cole has been replaced by Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger as judge on the ‘X Factor’ USA. Despite having already featured in a X Factor promo, with fellow Brit Steve Jones, producers of the show have axed the geordie singer in favour of current host Scherzinger. Reports suggest that the producers were worried about US viewers not being able to understand Cheryl’s strong accent, and also felt that she shared zero chemistry with fellow judge Paula Abdul. She has already started auditions however, and they didn’t get off to the best of starts – with Cheryl being booed for her opinions, and also recieveing backlash for sitting between Simon and fellow judge Abdul. 

If this is true, well there are a hundred initial questions that come to mind. Firstly, about just how livid Cheryl is right now. More than anything, this is humiliating. She gave up a lot here in the UK to do the US show, and received a lot of criticism from fans for ‘abandoning’ them. Furthermore, would this then mean that Cheryl would return and to the original X Factor show. Quite frankly, I’m betting her agent is urging her too, but she probably just wants to be rid of the whole X Factor charade altogether. Will she now move back to the UK and try and continue her solo career, or will she bomb now that she doesn’t have the X Factor’s publicity to lean on…? All puzzling questions my friend, needless to say she’s having a shitty day!

One thing we can be sure on – I foresee a big fallout with Simon Cowell!

I personally, am not her biggest fan. Her handling of Cher Lloyd in X Factor last year pushed me to the bloody edge, and the lack of help of the lovely Rebecca Ferguson just made things worse – seriously I still maintain that Rebecca would have won with the right nurturing. But this, I wouldn’t wish on her. She’s been hyped up, both in the media here, and over there. The producers have tried to get the American public to learn more about her. Allegedly they even told her to break up with boyfriend friend Derek Hough. And now, they drop her so fast her head must be spinning. It’s humiliating. She’s going to basically have to come back here with her tail between her legs, and hope that the British public forgive her for ditching them for a better offer.

I can’t help thinking though that this whole scenario was going to end in tears. She was always more likely to bomb in America, then to be a huge hit. Because if there is one thing you need to succeed in the US, it’s undeniable, massive, superstar talent. And I’m sorry to say, her gorgeous looks, dancing prowess and Geordie charm can’t hide her 2nd rate vocals. Sorry.
