I haven't been posting much, actually I haven't posted anything, about Cheryl Cole's X Factor drama because there were many reports flying around, none official, not a word from Cheryl, Simon or The X Factor, but it turns out, after filming two audition cities, Cheryl Cole is off The X Factor. Recently, The X Factor UK panel was announced and it consisted of Tulisa from N-Dubz, Kelly Rowland, Take That's Gary Barlow, and the only remaining judge Louis Walsh aka the Randy Jackson of the UK.
With nowhere turn to, BBC have apparently approached Cheryl to do the UK version of The Voice. God no. Whether it may be true or not, please do not let this happen. The Voice is not big enough to have someone like Cheryl Cole, Britain's best pop star, on the panel.
So as it turns out, Steve Jones will be the sole host of The X Factor US, and Nicole Scherzinger will take her place on The X Factor US. I'm just saying, but Paula should be off that panel, but of course FOX execs are banking on Saula to sell the show rather than Chimon. But Cheryl and Simon have a lot more chemistry between each other.
Hopefully Cheryl breaks the States on her own, without The X Factor, and hopefully without will.i.am meddling in her career any further.
All I can say is this is completely humiliating for Cheryl, for someone who left the UK to devote all her time to judge a singing competition to help introduce American audiences to her and her music, and getting fired only two months after, returning to the UK with the British press claiming she's grown too big for her boots. I'm guessing Cheryl will take some quiet time alone, before launching herself back into recording a new album and the supposed Girls Aloud 2012 reunion. But if I'm being completely honest, I don't want Girls Aloud to return. Yes, unpopular opinion. Cheryl > Girls Aloud.
