Cheryl Cole Replaced By Nicole Scherzinger as 'X Factor' Judge?

Cheryl Cole is being replaced as a judge on FOX’s new series The X Factor by Nicole Scherzinger, according to TMZ.

The 27-year-old British entertainer has already filmed a few rounds of auditions with the other judges, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and L.A. Reid.

Cheryl‘s accent considered to be too difficult for American audiences to understand and she didn’t have great chemistry with Paula, sources told TMZ.

Nicole, 32, has been serving as co-host of the show alongside Steve Jones, but will now be bumped to the judge position following Cheryl‘s departure.

    Really unfair on Cheryl if true to be honest, I loved Nicole as a judge on US X Factor and I’m sure she’ll be great but FOX should have considered this before hiring her, they’ve basically gave a high profile job and then taking it away from her to allow her to fall, which will be quite humiliating for her I imagine.

    Serves her right.

    She didn’t deserve the job in the first place

    She only got it because she’s WAS Simon’s pet.

    Now Paula is on the scene Cheryl can’t handle playing second best.

    @amensister: Whilst I agree, I think Simon showed very poor judgement on his part for taking her on in the first place.

    But as Simon is very savvy, it wouldn’t surprise me if he knew this was going to happen to create this media attention.

    YAY! I don’t know Cheryl but from what I’ve seen (and heard) she seems really…… full of herself? I adore Nicole! I was excited to see her as the host but now even more excited to see her as a judge! She’s a great judge on The Sing Off! :)

    Oh, and I doubt a reason as ridiculous as an “accent” is why she is being let go as a judge. That’s an absurd reason to give.
