    They are both good judges I have seen them both on the UK X Factor, but feel quite sorry for Cheryl. This is official confirmation everything before was speculation but this was an actual statement from FOX. I still think the show will be quite good so nobody has to worry

    Look im british and I dont even understand what the hell she is saying sometimes. I quite like the geordie accent though but for an American – it will be impossible to understand what she is saying. Replacing her is awful, tactless and humiliating for her, but they should never have considered her in the first place. It was only because of Cheryl’s – in fact British celebrities obsession with “cracking” America. Sucks to be her indeed.

    Pathetic! How desperate they are to get such publicity. Happy for Nicole she deserves it more. In my opinion now that they have replaced Cheryl (which was a good call) they should do one bettter replace Simon & Paula then it might be worh watching. I’m not tuning in.

    I wont be tuning in, i hope it fails. So low from FOX. Humiliating Cheryl like that, watch this all being a PR stunt if it is I hope Cheryl says ‘Screw them americans’ and takes place on the UK version of the Voice or goes back to UK X Factor. TEAMCHERYL .

    Good for Nicole! Nicole is a lovely judge on “The Sing-Off”. And I think two hosts was kind of silly anyway – much better with one host.
    I have no clue who Cheryl Cole is but I’m glad she’s not judging. In my opinion, since it is an American talent search there should only be American judges.

    There is official confirmation from SYCO – that is Simon Cowell’s company that runs the X FActor. Cheryl’s not on it, Nicole is. That was obviously FOX’s plan all along – American Idol showed that 2 hosts do not work. Nicole is not a host – FOX had her as a safety net as they thought that Cheryl would not work. I liked Cheryl on the UK version but she would not work in the US. She is completely unknown to most of the general public in the US, and her accent is hard to understand. I’m british and I have to listen to her a bit harder than I would with Simon.

    Hopefully this will allow the US public to see the real Nicole – she came across really well on the UK version and I’ve met her at F1 races and she’s always been really lovely.
