Is Chezza Going To Be A Mentor Instead Of A Judge On American X Factor?

Hmm…we definitely think she should be on the judges panel, but we could understand why execs would be more comfortable with her in this position!

Sources close to Simon Cowell have revealed that although he desperately wants Cheryl Cole to make the stateside transition with him to the US version of The X Factor, he may have to change her role to that of a mentor, similar to what Sinitta does on the UK edition of the reality competition!

The insider explains:

"Simon desperately wants Cheryl to be a judge but if that's knocked back by Fox chiefs the next option is to start her as a mentor. It would be a way to test how she's received in America. Plus viewers would be able to warm to her first, rather than having her thrust upon them by going straight on the panel. The truth is, nothing has been signed and the producers still aren't convinced."

Truthfully, we do agree that it's a gamble - but it's one that will DEFINITELY pay off!

Chezza just needs to get her feet wet with American audiences, and if that means as a mentor, then we could definitely get behind that!

But we would LOVE to see her ultimately as a judge!

What do U think?? What role should Chezza play on the US X Factor??

    why should she be a judge? she cant sing..?



  2. 2

    I'm still doubting that the americans know who she is AND it's gonna remind that way. No class, no talent nor any charisma.



  3. 3

    Seems how Perez is ignoring your birthday, Happy Birthday Adam Lambert :)



  4. 4

    THE BITCH SHUD GO TO COLLEGE. SHE CANT SING HERSELF AND AUTO-TUNES EVERYTHING. HOW CAN SHE JUDGE LIVE SINGERS WHEN SHE DOESNT SING LIVE HERSELF AND WHEN SHE DOES IT'S MESSED UP.



  5. 5

    she's absolutely awful, talentless and representative of everything the UK does NOT want to be renowned for. the americans won't like her, but please can you keep her anyway? we really don't want this chav scum back!



  6. 6

    Why would FOX give her the privilege of being on this show, when in 2003 she was CONVICTED for Actual Bodily Harm (ABH) she punched Sophie Amogbokpa. Cole allegedly called her a "Caribbean jigaboo" and a "black bitch".COLE was sentenced to 120 hours community service and had to pay £500 compensation plus £3000 in legal fees. THIS DOESN'T SEEM LIKE THE TYPE OF PERSON THAT SHOULD BE A JUDGE/MENTORING ANYONE!



  7. 7

    I think she should be a judge, as long as she doesn't show total bias like she did on the UK version last year with that twat Cher Lloyd.

    mentor ???? mmm…she´s a lovely lady …but professionally, c´mon…
    how can she be even a mentor? she knows nothing about a thing of being a "GOOD" artist or what to do in order to be it… what advice can she give to new comers?hehe… banal crap (for cameras mostly) that won´t help them anyway…

    She needs to learn how to perform on stage herself first…and I am not speaking about just singing- if you´re not a vocalist,all right - at least know how to perform…



  9. 9

    No reason she should have ANY role. Barely has cred in the UK. Has absolutely ZERO in the states! Waste of a prestigious space on what is sure to be a hit show. Why can't a US show just use people WE KNOW? Just look at how bad Piers Morgan is tanking!



  10. 10

    idk who this bitch is but selena gomez looks a lot like her. i just had to comment that altho im no selena fan.



  11. 11

    I have to admit, whoever Simon decides to take under his wing becomes a star. Please stop cos who he chooses are talentless, tacky, but ultimately pretty nothings. Simon is very good at what he does, not them. Cheryl Cole/ Tweedy is nothing without him and whoever styles her. America please give her a big kick in the ass like she deserves!!

    "What role should Chezza play on the US X Factor?"
    The toilet attendant.



  13. 13

    no role



  14. 14

    So shes gonna mentor them in lip syncing yeah? I suppose it's a pretty standard requirement for popstars though.



  15. 15

    Re: DixieWrecked – She is not particularly known for her vocal talents over here, but she is a massive celebrity, probably one of the most famous people in the country, so you can't say she has no "cred". Everybody knows her name.



  16. 16

    Her nose is way too small for her face. Bad nose job.



  17. 17

    she should be a contestant, maybe she´d learn a thing or two about singing

    id stick it in but who the hell cares about this broad. stop pushing brits and their shows on us. nobody cares. we dont want to hear about british x factor, british surivor, british big brother, or any other brit show (although little britian is quite funny).
    good night and god bless.



  19. 19

    i still don't understand what people see in her. she's so fugly



  20. 20

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker – she never had a nose job you d*ck. get a proper look at her pictures, she has a hook nose and it's beautiful.



  21. 21

    i still don't understand what people see in her. she's fugly



  22. 22

    umm the judges are the mentors….? so she would be both..



  23. 23

    This woman is fake and overrated, amazing what a few hair extentions can do, she looks as rough as her sister without all the makeup, that fake marriage of hers to Ashley Cole was to gain her favour with the black community after the court appearance. Also the word BEARD springs to mind!



  24. 24

    She is quite classy, but I imagine the american audience would have a hard time with her accent.



  25. 25

    I hope she gets to be a judge on the US X-Factor. People need to stop hating on her



  26. 26

    Unless they work on her diction I'm not sure the Americans will understand a thing she's saying. She doesn't have a clear English voice. You're not getting Victoria Beckham or Kate Winslet.



  27. 27

    I'm team Dannii I want her on the show.

    Why do you keep posting about 'chezza'? I've only heard about her on this site. I'm sick of her already and I've never seen her on tv or elsewhere.



  29. 29

    Re: reallynow! – Because of a fight she got into almost 10 years ago?! How would you feel if someone didn't give you a job because of something you had done 8 years prior?? And when it comes to the prejudice remarks, people change (especially within a large amount of time like that). Chances are, she wouldn't be where she is today if she hadn't.



  30. 30

    You give her this 'Chezza" name as if we all afffectionately call her that. Truth is most of us don't know or care who she is. Put her on the show and it will tank!

  31. 7tizz says – reply to this


    31

    Honesly Mario - you are the only one who gives a shit about this bitch. The accent alone is a major turn off to many american viewers. Not to mention americans have no clue who she is and won't buy her as a mentor or a judge.



  32. 32

    on the xfactor isnt it the judges job to be a mentor? … oh well, he said he will tell about his plans for both shows in 2 weeks…



  33. 33

    I don't get why Simon Cowell is trying so hard to make Cheryl Cole popular here… Well I have my suspicions but I hope to god they aren't true.



  34. 34

    Re: PlayingTheAngel – people ARE denied jobs because of their criminal record. that's why you have to disclose that information when you apply for a job and when you try to enter another country. also, why should we forgive and forget that she was convicted of a violent and racist assault? she might have some lovely hair extensions now, but she's still the same person.



  35. 35

    Oh my God… Simon, stop trying to get her to States. Cheryl has only a beautiful face. No class, no talent. Simon fancies Cheryl, that's why he wants her to be everywhere. She uses Simon sooo much! Cheryl wouldn't be famous as much as she is in UK if Sharon O wouldn't have suggested Cheryl as her replacement. Enough! I'm so tired of seeing Cheryl Needy Tweedy everywhere. Stay in UK and be grateful that you are a judge on UK's X Factor, which is absolutely terrible now. And on the other hand, it's called AMERICAN X FACTOR, why then only Brits are considered to be judges and presenters?

    Re: DiscoCat – Hahahahahaha… Good one, you just made my day



  37. 37

    SIMON IS A KNOWN PIMP. HE PIMPS OUT CHEZZA COLE (HER HOOKER/STRIPPER NAME) TO PEEPS IN THE MUSIK INDUSTRY LIKE WILL.I.AM, THE KING OF THE AUTO-TUNERS. #LAME AND CHEESY. SIMON'S PIMP HAND IS STRONG!!!

    Re: gunnerbabe
    Actually, she did get rhinoplasty. Do your research.



  39. 39

    why do you keep talking about this whore? Can't you just let her live in peace on the OTHER side of the Atlantic???



  40. 40

    Funny how he did'nt show the back of that dress. It revealved a rather large half finished tattoo creeping up from her ass. Looked like a toddler went crazy with a permanent marker. Classy!



  41. 41

    Why on earth should she have any role on XFactor US? She's utterly talentless and classless.. remember how she acted like a pathetic 16 year old calling out Wagner on XFactor this season? And she can't sing to save her life! The only reason she's famous is because she's pretty (with a TON of makeup and hair extensions… google pics of her on Pop Stars the Rivals… average at best!) and because she married Ashley Cole. Who she conveniently left out of her autobiography.. I know he's a dick but she would still be nothing more than a background singer for Girls Aloud if she hadn't seduced him, the chavvy scum!! Uhgggg just go away Cheryl!!! We don't want you!!



  42. 42

    "we" think she should be a judge no perez you think she should be a judge no one agrees with you!



  43. 43

    Re: Merab – what advice could cheryl give?? well apart from becoming famous in the uk by entering a show like the xfactor ( popstars the rivals ) i think she has exactly what it takes to be a judge!! So for all you who are saying she rubbish and cant sing or whatever she has more experience than anyone she has it performing and knows what its like to go through this process so you all need to do some reasearch before you start talking s**t!!

    Re: PlayingTheAngel Umm people are denied visa's to the US for assault charges, so yes it does matter. If she gets a working visa then anyone who has been denied a US visa due to criminal charges dealing with assault should fucking protest. And it's not just a mistake you make when you are young, it's trashy and scummy and low class.
