British vocalist Cheryl Cole will be a judge on The X Factor. She'll join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid at the judge's table. Cole has been rumored to join the show for quite some time, since she served as a judge on the UK version of the show. A fourth judge will be announced at a later date.
"I'm thrilled for Cheryl. She is massively excited about this show, and has been fantastic to work with," says Cowell in a statement. "She is also a complete brat! Most importantly, this girl can spot talent."
"I'm so excited to be taking part in the American version of The X Factor," Cole said in a statement. "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."
Are you planning to watch The X Factor this Fall? Who should be the fourth judge? Should Simon Cowell reunite with Paula Abdul?
