Sharon Osbourne Doubts Chezza's Stateside Success!

We're going to have to respectfully disagree on this one!

Sharon Osbourne recently revealed that she thinks Cheryl Cole, who has been reportedly offered a judging position on the US edition of The X Factor, may not be a good fit for stateside audiences, and instead thinks Nicole Scherzinger may be better off for the job!

She explains:

"Cheryl's perfect for England. She's the nation's sweetheart and they absolutely love her. But over here [in the US] it's Nicole's town. You have to think of the audience and most of them would never have heard of Girls Aloud. Nicole's great TV, has a huge following here in the States and people absolutely love her. Plus she's beautiful and talented. It takes a long time to make it in the States because it’s so huge. I think she's made the right decision to move out here. She couldn't just come over and do a show then pootle off. Cheryl reminds me of Bambi. She's got these big, brown, beautiful eyes and you just want to stroke her."

We have a feeling that our Chezza may be SLIGHTLY more well known than what you're assuming, bb!

And with the kind of success that she's had in the UK, we think that the slightest bit of media attention will launch her into superstardom here, too!

But we certainly shall see, won't we?

Here's hoping! Fingers crossed!

  1. 1

    the only place I ever see this Chezza person whomever she is, is on here so I agree. I don't know who she is a singer I guess?



  2. 2

    Hate to tell ya Perez, I have no clue to she is, and not alot of other people do either.



  3. 3

    No, I think she might be right… if it wasn't for this site, I wouldn't know who she is either… nevermind, Girls Aloud…



  4. 4

    The only reason America has ever heard of Cheryl "chezza" is because you keep trying to shove her down our throats…but America is not biting…



  5. 5

    Don't care about none of these English people. Can the snow storms over there keep them in Europe? Please????



  6. 6

    I never hear anything about her except on this website. I agree with Sharon 100%.



  7. 7

    Geez i wonder who's opinion means more
    1,some hate monger on the net
    2, a person actually involved in the music industry

    soo hard to decide on this one .



  8. 8

    i'm surprised to hear that Sharon said this about Cheryl. she's usually a lot more supportive of her. as far as Nicole Whatseverface having a huge following in the US, Sharon must be drinking again. most mainstream people don't even know how to pronounce her name, let alone know who she is. plus, i thought she was boring as hell on X Factor UK with not a lot to say. i'll be VERY disappointed if cheryl does not get the US gig.



  9. 9

    Perez..you are a complete idiot douchebag. Noone knows Cheryl stateside. She's not gonna make it here..agree with Sharon.



  10. 10

    so just because you know her you assume she's well known? seriously the only time i have ever heard or her is when i started coming here not too long ago.. seeing all your annoying posts about her.. i don't get her appeal at all.. she's not a good performer.. we already have enough anyway.. -_-

  11. SRM says – reply to this

    She may be alright in the states but Sharon's right. No one knows who she is and you'd be hard pressed to find anyone outside of the well-traveled that have heard of Girls Aloud. It took the Beckhams forever and they still don't have the star status here they have everywhere else. She may be embraced but Nicole will outshine her by miles.



  12. 12

    Aww i wanted cheyl to be on the US x factor. Piers morgan was not known inthe US but he is still a judge on American got talent. Cheryl is my favourite judge and i hope she comes to the u.s



  13. 13

    BOTH of them are worthless. Bank on that!



  14. 14

    ugh what a hater! CHERYL IS SOO GONNA MAKE IT!



  15. 15

    well shes right. the only time i hear about this girl is cause of this site. never heard of girls aloud before either. Sharons absolutely right.



  16. 16

    Once again Mario, you show your poor judging abilities…. Sharon is absolutely right on this one. Almost no one in the States knows Cheryl and Nicole would do an amazing job. Get a clue… How's your last horrible decision - hum I mean recording act - coming along? It feels like you enjoy making mistakes on purpose. Self-Sabotage? Probably…



  17. 17

    I've only heard of her on this site.



  18. 18

    I agree with Sharon on this one. Cheryl may be huge in the UK, but that doesn't mean she can break into the North American market. Just look at Robbie Williams or Take That, even. MASSIVE in the UK, but never really broke into the US market. Only had mild success.. so we'll see.



  19. 19

    She can still blow me!



  20. 20

    I love Sharon, but just because Nicole is instantly more recognizable in the States, doesn’t make the US “her town.” If that were the case, Nicole’s solo career would have taken off here by now, but it hasn’t for whatever reason. I’d take the chance on Cheryl for the simple fact that she’s not only the total package of looks, talent and beauty, but she is fresh, new, and something different and I think the US will embrace her.



  21. 21

    The only place I ever see this chick is on this site. No one else knows who she is. Sharon is spot on.



  22. 22

    yeah, just like everyone else, the only place i've ever heard about this cheryl was here. and also today was the first time i've ever heard her singing. and she can't do it to save her life. i can't even understand how she can be a judge on anyone's singing. half people that she's saying can't sing, actually can and they do it better than she does.
    so yeah, mario. once again, shut the fuck up. you know nothing about music. how's your record label going?



  23. 23

    Oh and another thing, a lot of Americans didn’t know who Piers Morgan was and yet he bagged a gig on America’s Got Talent. So I don’t see why Cheryl shouldn’t get the same chance he did.



  24. 24

    Yeah, Perez, I had never heard of her or Girls Aloud until I started reading your website. She's gorgeous, but other than that, I've never heard her sing, let alone speak, so I think Nicole definitely has her beat as far as people knowing her. I'm not saying she can't make it here, but you're wrong to assume people know who she is just because you do.



  25. 25

    i am an american and love cheryl cole. She is a better judge than we have her the states and i prefer her to nicole.



  26. 26

    I only know Cheryl Cole from randomly listening to her on YouTube but anyways… Nicoles town? I didn't think she was all that popular.



  27. 27

    i love cheryl as a judge she has great personality and i am not abig fan of nicole so if it is between these 2 i hope cheryl gets the gig.



  28. 28

    I would love to have cheryl on the US x factor and i am american and have seen the uk version and love her. However i suppose if a lot of people don't know her they won't want her on the U.S version. But i think she is a fanstic judge



  29. 29

    I agree with the Piers Morgan comment. Nobody knew him either and now he has taken over for American icon Larry King. I'm willing to give Cheryl a chance, but she will have to bring something different to the table. There are too many American bimbos to compete with.



  30. 30

    SHARON OSBOURNE IS 10000% CORRECT. WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG. IT TOOK MANY YEARS FOR SHARON TO BE KNOWN IN THE STATES AFTER SHE CAME FROM THE UK. CHEZZA IS A LIP SYNCING NO TALENT BIATCH WHO IS AT BEST A C-LIST CELEB WITH A FUCKING ANNOYING GEORDIE ACCENT. TONS OF US CELEBS OUTDO HER BY A WIDE MARGIN. NICOLE HAS NO TALENT AS A JUDGE EITHER. WATCH HER DURING THE SING-OFF, SHE SUCKS BY FAR COMPARED TO MUSICAL KNOWLEDGE OF BEN FOLDS OR SHAWN STOCKMAN. ALL SHE CAN SAY IS "GOOD, GREAT, I LIKE THAT, YOU'RE IMPROVING, ETC." YAAAAWN!!!!!!! BUT BETWEEN THE 2 NICOLE IS BETTER. AT LEAST SHE CAN SOMEWHAT SING EVEN THOUGH SHE'S KNOWN AS FLOPZINGER IN THE MUSIC BIZ…



  31. 31

    I am with you perez i hope cheryl comes stateside she is so likeable but if not we can watch her on uk one.



  32. 32

    THAT OSBORNE WOMAN IS A FUCKING HOG WITH A VOICE THAT IS EVEN MORE GRATING THAT PEREZ'S. HATE HER.

  33. tasha says – reply to this


    33

    Totally agree with Sharon. I've never heard of Girls Aloud and don't know this girl other then seeing you talk about her Perez and I usually skip the article since I've never heard of her. No one I know has heard of her. How many Girls Aloud albums ever sold here in the USA? That will tell you how many people here know her or care about her.



  34. 34

    Re: lacey1 – PIERS MORGAN IS STILL A FUCKING HAS BEEN. NO ONE KNOWS WHO HE IS. HE'S GONNA FUCK UP LARRY KING'S SHOW. HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT REGIONAL AMERICAN CULTURE ESP. POLITICS. 60% OF KING'S SHOW IS POLITICS AND POLITICAL ISSUES, NONE OF WHICH PIERS IS FAMILIAR OR HAS INDEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF… BITCH IS GONNA GET SKOOLED REAL FAST ONCE THE POLITICAL GUESTS COME ON. HE'S GONNA FAIL 1ST YR. AMERICANS WONT CATCH ON TO HIM AS A TALK SHOW HOST WHEN HE'S IGNORANT OF US ISSUES AND PERSPECTIVES.



  35. 35

    Nobody knows who she is! All I know is that she's some random girl that Perez loves to talk about. I'm sure either she or X-Factor is paying Perez to write about her every day for the publicity. I YouTubed her to see how she's like as a judge. I can't understand a word she says. They need to put subtitles. I like George Michael better or anyone who we Americans know and can understand.



  36. 36

    Re: carolhellton – Well look at American Idol, I've heard people singing accapella on that show that sound better than Jennifer Lopez's finished songs. Apperently a judge that actually knows how to sing is never gonna be a part of any of these shows.



  37. 37

    Hate agreeing with Sharon Osbourne, but I promise you that 99% of Americans have absolutely no clue who this chick is. And I'm being rather generous stating that 1% actually do.



  38. 38

    I only knew of her from your site when her husband started cheating on her ass. And I was like, 'Who is the girl, Cheryl or Ashley Cole?' lol. So… yea, if she wasn't gorgeous as fuck and playing the victim all the time, she'd be nothing. She's just an ex-WAG Geordie chav slag what used to be in a girl group… is she still in it? I dun even know, never heard a Girls Aloud song in my life, never watched X Factor. Fuck 'em. England's pop culture is almost as trashy as USA's. Jedward are worse than any teen idol from America. I saw them on Nevermind the Buzzcocks recently, I wanted to punch them.



  39. 39

    I will say that I used to think she was hot until I realized that she has worse taste in tattoos than Mike Tyson.



  40. 40

    I have searched for her on youtube as perez is always going on about her.An she does have a great personality. I would like to see her get the job but if not i can always watch her on youtube.



  41. 41

    wow man Sharon has become so bitter.Shes just pissed she left X factor when she did,because it dipped but now it HUGE again.I went off her when she bullied Danni minogue,who I dont personally like but she didnt deserve the abuse.Sharon was massive in the UK, now shes a nobody again.I wish Kelly Osbourne Would fuck off too.No one cares that you got skinny…and blonde



  42. 42

    She is right…even after you writing about her every day with your stupid x factor posts, I have no idea who this Chezza person is or what her "celebrity" is.



  43. 43

    I hope cheryl come to the states. I agree with a previous poster who said most people who judge american talent shows are not that talented or well known. cheryl was actually a contestant on a uk talent show soit is intresting that she has been on both sids of the table. I wouldprefer cheryl to nicole



  44. 44

    The x factor is not a singing competition it is an entertainment show. The judges are there to enterain. Go cheryl cole



  45. 45

    perez did a similar thing with Lady Gaga by constantly posting stories about her and now look at her. the most famous singer on the planet. he's boosting the profile of cheryl cole in america by making sure you people have heard of her. he's chosen his new favorite and hopefully he's going to help make cheryl a star here, too.



  46. 46

    Chezza is vey likeable in england and I am sure she will be in the US too.

    This has never been Nicole town, sharon.



  47. 47

    Please take Cheryl "Biffa" Cole to the U.S. (or anywhere but here in the U.K.?) she's an annoying tit who can't sing or judge.

    Perfect for the X-Factor USA.



  48. 48

    Is Simon Cowell going to bring subtitles for her??



  49. 49

    Im from UK, Perez and i tell you, i only know Cheryl and Nadine out of the whole Girls Aloud group. I knew Nadine before here because of her involvement with Hollywood tv actor Jesse but that's basically it! They're not that famous here.



  50. 50

    The only reason I even know that she exists is because you keep harping on about her. Think Sharon might be right about this one.



  51. 51

    Re: xcalibur – Please use lower case like a normal person. You look like an idiot.



  52. 52

    I've never heard any of her songs. In fact, the only reason I know her name at all is because Perez posts about her. I think Sharon is right.



  53. 53

    The only time I have ever heard of her is on this website. Also, never heard of Girls Aloud…



  54. 54

    Re: stefystef – yeah cause the world totally revolves around America. Who cares about the rest of the stupid people around the world? GOD BLESS AMERICA AND [b]ONLY[/b] AMERICA.



  55. 55

    The only reason I've ever heard of her is because of this website and no one else I know knows her…unless they also read this website. Sorry hun, it aint gonna be easy for her across the pond.



  56. 56

    we've got plenty of no-talents over here already. you can stay in Britain Cheeza



  57. 57

    Re: J Live – i know, i agree. it's so weird how no one cares anymore. anyone that had any kind of success as a singer apparently can judge other singers now. jennifer lopez hasn't even had a successful album on the last few years, i honestly don't know what in the world she's doing there. crazyness.



  58. 58

    Sharon's Right….. This chick is not for the job



  59. 59

    She's so overrated. The only talent she has is looking pretty.

  60. SF90 says – reply to this


    60

    The only thing people outside of the UK have ever heard about Cheryl was that her famous soccer husband cheated on her. She should thank him ’cause, because of that her song "Fight for this love" got radio plays in the rest of Europe.



  61. 61

    I wouldn't even know about this chick if it wasn't for you. So Sharon has a point.



  62. 62

    I still don't even know what she does or anything. I just keep seeing her name and face posted on this site like 5x a day. :/



  63. 63

    Re: Cheapmetaphor – YOU LOOK LIKE A JACKASS. DEAL WITH IT. OBVIOUSLY UR UNINTELLIGENT SINCE U CANT READ UPPER CASE. I SURMISE UR EDUCATION LEVEL IS PRETTY LOW CLASS. EFF OFF!

  64. GG78 says – reply to this


    64

    she's absolutely right. the bitch can't sing.



  65. 65

    Sharon Osbourne is an old bitch!



  66. 66

    Yeah same here the only place I read about her is on here



  67. 67

    Most everyone here is right. Nobody knows who she is- same goes with a lot fo other people you talk about. Im sure that like me, most people just scroll past those type of posts.



  68. 68

    who is this cheeze?



  69. 69

    Are you kidding me? No offence, but nobody outside of the U.K. knows who "Chezza" is. Girls aloud had a few hits in europe, I don't know about the U.S. but she certainly hasn't made any kind of mark on the map when it comes to being a solo artist. And her songs are shitty.



  70. 70

    I can think of at least 20 american starlets who are entirely more suited for american X Factor then…well either of them. Nicole is more popular then you want to give her credit for Perez. And btw why don't you start calling her Chava? Americans like their ladies to be LADIES. If your going to punch people in the face you better be Charlie Sheen or the laughing stock of the country aka Jersey Shore cast members. Cheryl is pretty, yes. But any aesthetically pleasing high end stripper looking woman can become a pop star.



  71. 71

    Ummm…did anyone in North America know who Simon Cowell was before American Idol? I think not. But with a huge launching pad like American Idol he became instantly famous. I also don't remember Kara Dioguardi on magazine covers or guest starring on Hannah Montana before she became a judge.

    If Cheryl was just trying to break America with her solo career I doubt she would have much success. But being on a sure-fire hit like The X Factor and having that much exposure will not only raise her profile in the US but will also lead to at least a moderately successful singing career here. I don't know if she'll go platinum or anything, but she'll at least have a few hits on the Billboard charts. She's GORGEOUS, it's not like she's going to go unnoticed.



  72. 72

    i'm usually on the fence about watching these sort of talent search shows but usually i'll watch if they grab my attention. & this chezza chick seems very lovley but i'd be more likely to take interest if nicole were judging… if anything i'd probably toon in just to get a little glimpse.



  73. 73

    But Perez you don't live in the UK. She's not so well loved here anymore, a lot of people are downright sick of her now. America is a whole new thing, she will be ripped apart, she can't have a sense of entitlement there. As much as I like Cheryl, couldn't agree with Sharon more.



  74. 74

    Re: brat93111Re: wwefan01Re: Jessica Loucks – i'm with you bitches, i wouldn't know who this ho was if it wasn't for her constantly being on this site…..she has big annoying cow eyes and since perez's taste in music is so questionable, i'm pretty sure this chick will be a flop over here



  75. 75

    Re: msloriga – i'm banking on the fact that you're worthless



  76. 76

    Re: CruellaDeVil – are you on drugs? did you seriously just give that nasty fool perez all the credit for gaga's fame? you poor thing.



  77. 77

    I love Sharon's logic, but I have to disagree with her…Cheryl Cole is what the states NEED! She has edgy pop music, looks totally gorgeous in that commercial way and has just enough talent to make it work…It's been awhile since we've had a fabulous brit pop star…Actually since the Spice Girls. I think Cheryl Cole will totally rock America's socks. Plus, she's a brunette and it will be a nice change from the blond Britney, Xtina, Gaga and Madonnas…WATCH OUT KATY PERRY!



  78. 78

    Sharron is correct perez
    and you are going to get such a big shock when cheryl pulls down her pants and there isn't a huge cock waiting to take you up the ass!

    You are full of fucking shit.



  79. 79

    Personally Being from the uk and seeing most of the The X Factor series, I loved sharon as a judge but she was far too diva and when the wouldn't up her pay she didn't get a new contract for the series after. and cheryl replaced her as a judge. So i personally feel sharon's, Comment is more out of jealousy…. Nicole whatshername, Lets face it she may be Loved By lots but i personally don't see a great deal of talent her first solo effort was like a funeral… Dead and buried! Yeah She can sing and dance… But i feel she's like a complete bitch of camera! Cheryl has had 2 Number 1 albums a massive style icon over here and a national treasure. and i feel like she Just needs to be given a chance! :) And then make an opinion or judge her :)



  80. 80

    She is certainly NOT our nation's sweetheart. Most of us bloody hate her.



  81. 81

    I concur… I'd have no idea who the bitch was if it weren't for you talking about her… I still really don't know who she is.



  82. 82

    Sharon is definitely right! the only place I heard of Cheryl was on here, and I've never even heard of one Girls Aloud song!



  83. 83

    I love cheryl cole!!! and i believe that cheryl is a much better singer than nicole, and that she would give better critiques. This is my opinion.. and i think this will get more Americans to know cheryl!!!



  84. 84

    ALSO.. she sings with WILL.I.AM and Nicki Minaj in Check I Out….. google it!



  85. 85

    Re: TheBadSeed – That's because we were desperate to get Piers Morgan out the country. Incidentally, "countryside is the act of killing Piers Morgan", after all. Have fun with the tosser.

    Cheryl Cole is pretty talentless, and I fucking hate the bitch. There's something very unlikeable about her. Maybe I hate her because she married a gay dude and took him back after he cheated on her publicly.



  86. 86

    I'm from the UK but live in the US so I can speak on this. This woman has more or less ruined her chance at success in the States because of the shit she pulled this last season of the X Factor. She is very biased and I don't think that shit will fly over here in America. We will see though.

  87. @v@ says – reply to this


    87

    Fame quotient has changed in the U.S. If Cole does X-Factor, she'll become famous in short order simply for being a t.v. personality. The music, however, is a much different matter and I'm presuming Sharon is referring to Cheryl's musical career in the states. She's right about that bit.

  88. @v@ says – reply to this


    88

    Tell Ozz I missed Z. Wylde big time. New axe was just fine, of course, but the cohesion, dynamics, tightness and momentum were sorely diminished, not to mention the fuzzy wall of slide sound that filled the room with devil horns metal mood. Although excited, the room wasn't electric. The hair only stood up a couple of times.



  89. 89

    Perez we been telling you this as well. You U.S readers. I dont even know who this Cheryl person is until you told us and we do not even care. Her music is just plain. And what song has Girls Aloud sing? I cant think of one song and i listent to pop music all the time.



  90. 90

    I love Cheryl. I've been a fan of hers since 2001 in fact, so a lot longer than Perez (I'm sure). As much as I adore her, I feel that Mrs.O May be correct on this issue.



  91. 91

    Why do you call her 'chezza' her name is Cheryl Cole.
