It's official, Cheryl Cole will be hitting the States as a judge on the launch of X Factor U.S.
Simon Cowell had hinted to the fact that Cheryl might be on his newly formed judging panel, previously revealing: 'OK, one of the judges has quite long hair’ - however nothing had been confirmed until now.
Eager to launch her solo career in the U.S, Cheryl had recently flown out to meet record bosses to talk about releasing her hit album Messy Little Raindrops out there. And no doubt being part of the much coveted judging panel on X Factor will certainly help raise her profile out there.
Simon and the X Factor have helped make Cheryl a household name, away from her band Girls Aloud, and through this she has launched a highly successful solo career with two hit albums and No.1 singles. And ever since Cheryl first joined the panel two years ago, her and Simon have become firm friends.
But who else will be given a highly sought-after seat on the panel, Louis or Dannii perhaps? Singer Nicole Scherzinger who guest judged on British X Factor and performed live on Sunday's show is a favourite to join.
And with next weekend seeing the stars of U.S hit show Glee performing live, it's set to be a real show-stopper of a night!
