Cheryl Cole confirmed for American X Factor

Cheryl Cole has been confirmed as a judge on the American X Factor.

Following months of speculation, it has been confirmed that Cheryl will be doing the US version along with Simon Cowell.

“I’m so excited to be taking part in the American version of The X Factor,” said the 27-year-old beauty, who has been a judge on the UK version since 2008, mentoring the winning act in her first two series.

“I absolutely love it here in the UK, and with the talent they have out in America, I’m sure we’re going to find someone very special. I can’t wait to get started.

“I just can’t decide whether I am more excited to find and nurture the talent or for the unbelievable amount of amusement and entertainment I will have watching Simon doing everything and anything he can to beat me.

“He’s tried to beat me for three years in the UK, and hasn’t even come close. His ego must be so bruised. America is gonna love this.”
