Simon, who previously worked with Paula on American Idol, L.A. Reid, and Cheryl Cole have all been officially confirmed as judges.

Nicole Scherzinger and British TV personality Steve Jones will host the show, which premieres this September.

I am so happy for Paula. American Idol was over for me when she got the boot.

# 2

America please don’t fall for Cheryl Cole
She will pretend to cry and seem like a nice person but last year her true identify was exposed as a selfish talentless shallow person

She has took over EVERYTHING here in the UK please don’t fall for it in the states!

@Dan: oh be quiet stop exaggerating. Americans just remember this Cheryl does have a lot of hate in the UK and the simple reason is she is over exposed the tabloids cant go a day without mentioning her and therefore people seem to think its right to hate her for something which isnt her fault at all.

I’m not going to say she’s the best judge on the show but she is a good judge, and if she really believes in an act she will certainly put a lot of effort into making them win.

I don’t like Cheryl because she is unprofessional and actually the worst judge on the show!

Now there are going to be two Brits with thick accents – Cheryl Cole (Geordie) and Steve Jones (Welsh). I can’t wait to see the public’s response to this when the X Factor first season begins.
It would be good if they include guest judges on the panel from the UK X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent such Dannii Minogue, Louis Walsh, Amanda Holden and Michael Mcintyre.

@Dan: why do you put so much time and effort into disliking someone?? just move along and let people decide what they think of her.

# 9

No one will understand what Cheryl Cole says and her accent will be made a mockery of.
Simon Cowell deliberately chose celebrities who are less famous than him in the U.S. to join his panel so that he would be the undisputed star of the show.

@Natasha: Let’s be fair Steve is much easier to understand and I think over time Cheryl’s accent will tone down.

When I think of the kind of people who are “mean”, like described in Taylor Swift’s powerful new song, Simon Cowell comes to mind as up near the top of the list.

Hopefully, Paula Abdul can help serve to counter-balance some of his acerbity.

This show will suck A SS! lol

Another same old boring talent competition.. we already have The Voice which was a breath of fresh air. We dont need another AGT or AI here.

What’s worst is that this judging panel is so boring!

I think this was pretty obvious for Paula when she did not return back to American Idol

i don’t think people will have trouble with cheryl’s accent. they’ll have trouble with the fact that she’s stupid, knows nothing about the history of music and is talentless.

CHERYL IS AWESOME, Cheryl is completelt charming and talented but she’s also completely gorgeous. To all you HATERS, JEALOUS, MEAN, MISERABLE, ENVIOUS, SPITEFUL TWITS get a life, because you are very insecure and unhappy wiyh your lives, that you need someone to shove all your anger on, JEALOUSY is very hard to control


I will not be watching a show that Frankenstein the “box-head” and a complete drugged up moron will be hosting and critiquing. That’s just me, though. I’m sure every other drugged up Frankenstein will be watching, and that’s the majority to win you the popular vote in this country to make it big!! So, kudos to you!!!

Im from america and I have no problem understanding Cheryls accent. I am a huge fan of the UK show, and all you haters, she gets bad press because she’s overexposed. But I also agree there are way to many voice shows…maybe they should give a show to canada, since the only thing they produced for a while is Justin Bieber.

OMG not her again i thought they got rid of her forever!
