Simon Cowell deliberately chose celebrities who are less famous than him to join his panel so that he would be the undisputed star of the show.

Cheryl was so shapely a few years ago but has lost so much weight and is so skinny now. Why did she do it? She was perfect before. Please put 10 pounds back on. She looks wasted.

Cheryl Cole doesn’t have a good figure anymore.
She’s too skinny and a bad example to women around the country.
She should have a healthy model figure that boasts an ample cleavage, fuller legs and a fuller backside.

I guess this means we should expect one or two of the following judges from the UK X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent to join the USA X Factor’s judging panel as well:

Dannii Minogue, Louis Walsh, Amanda Holden, Michael Mcintyre

Isn’t Paula Abdul rumored to be the last judge?

bahaha they probably could’nt get anyone else! she is talentless and a terrible judge!

Love her Geordie accent! I understand her just fine.




Cheryl is completely out of her depth. In the UK the mediocre and talentless received a great deal of attention but Americans will expect more than just a pretty face. This is going to be cringeworthy.

Beautiful face on her, but she has some of the most horrendous tattoos imaginable. Do a google image search to see what im talking about.

MEMEMEMEME just ME @ 05/05/2011 at 11:12 am

OMG I can’t believe this talentless/good for nothing female has been picked to judge others talent when she is herself has no talent or what so ever.

Simon are u doing her or something?

Its so dumb putting someone unknown as the judge. Unfortunatly for me, when I was in England I watched the Xfactor with her on it, and I didn’t like her. She was so rude to one of the contestants. Plus I hear that she’s a complete snob. That’s too bad for simon, having Idol and The voice with leading celebrities and the Xfactor US with an unknown person.

To all the HATTERS,MEAN,JEALOUS,MISERABLE,ENVIOUS,SPITEFUL TWITS get a life. Cheryl Cole is AWESOME. Cheryl will be a great judge on U.S.XFactor and i love Cheryl cute accent

there stealing all are judges pls leave some for england :)

I’m so happy for Cheryl and I love Girls Aloud but I like Nadine better.

The US can have this trashy *****.

I really don’t like Cheryl on British XFactor so I don’t understand why they would want her on the US one. She is over-rated, hyped, talentless and totally annoying…..And yes I have a life and I’m loving every minute of it….

she will be great.I’m not a fan of her, but I’ve seen her at X factor and she will be great judge and coach .If she will be as good as she was in Uk , she will become one of the best judges .Good job Simon.

No one is a hater Cheryl is talentless she cannot sing or perform live at all.The show will be a big flop, the Ameicans will not take kindly to the fact that Cheryl beat up and racially abused a black woman either and did not have the decency to admit fault.The Voice rules
