Chezza Snubbed! Not Getting The US X Factor Judging Position?!

| Filed under: Simon CowellCherylX Factor


We guess she's out! But still - any appearance on the show will be a good profile boost for her!

Although Cheryl Cole was originally expected to take a seat on the judges panel of the US version of The X Factor, it appears as though her role has been moved to that of Simon Cowell's helper, much like Sinatta's across the pond, because execs are concerned that her accent is too strong for her to be marketable here!

The insiders explain:

‘People just don’t know who she is over there and people struggle to understand what she is saying. Simon is consoling her with the offer of helping him win the first series, which would give her profile a massive boost. If audiences and contestants can't understand her, it is actually a regulatory offense. Simon Cowell is still one of her biggest supporters. But even though the X Factor is his idea it’s the executives at Fox who have the ultimate say over the make-up of the show.'


But hey - it's still a step in the right direction for her to get her name out there with American audiences, so we wouldn't be too upset!

And WE can always fill in for her on the judges table! Ha! Just saying!

What do U think?? Should Chezza get the judging spot??

    its true tho lol i can understand how you americans would find it hard to understand what she is saying. I think its mad how much the uk is obsessed with america but use really have no idea about us LOL hahah well im speaking in terms of the majority :D

  2. 2

    Honestly do not know her work. I liked that aviator hat she was sporting so much that I went and bought one though. I read and see pictures of her…

  3. 3

    Any disappointment from me.

  4. 4

    WTF Perez, you are the only person who is cheering for this girl in the US. No one knows who she is other than she is pretty. From what I heard her voice isnt even that great either. She needs to stay on her side on the pond.

    I get the point of Americans not knowing who she is and all that. But what is the problem with her accent? I'm from Belgium and I understand everything she's saying so it can't be that hard for people who actually speak English…?

    Re: Tash20 – he reports on her because there are a major amount of british people who look at this site and sometimes we like to see a post that is from our side of the POND lol :P

    the only reason that i watched uk x factor is because of cgeryl cole she is fun cute avd beautiful as for her accent english is not my first language and i understand her completly .so i dont know how american cant .as for her not being famos in America so was simon cowle when he first started in american idol and also perice morgan but they turned out to be a sucsccese after words

    PEREZ!!!! Ive watched XFACTOR UK since it started. Cheryl is the WORST judge that has been on it. She only gets places because of her looks.
    Commenting that people are "cute" is not acceptable when its a SINGING competition. Also I must mention that she performed on Xfactor herself but was she singing live?? NO! She lip sync…how is that showing example? Its not…. its showing how she cant sing live. She doesnt deserve that place on that XFACTOR USA. Lets face it she would be no where without DADDY COWELL

  9. 9

    I'm from Russia. And I can understand everything she says. And I am absolutely helpless about understanding the southern accent or gangsta speech from usa.

  10. 10

    nobody in America knows or gives a shit who this talentless broad is - she's famous for being beautiful…….and with all the makeup they put on her, that's debatable………..

  11. 11

    nooo. i want her as the judge

  12. 12

    She sucks, so anyway, US dont miss nothing.

  13. 13

    Re: April 20th – Her last album was nominated for "Worst album of the year". Her music is rubbish… if she hadnt got the xfactor her career would have been gone down the drain. The XFACTOR USA could do with NADINE COYLE the VOICE of girls aloud!

  14. 14

    I am so upset. I live in America and absolutely love Cherly Cole. She is gorgeous and has an amazing voice I think this would have been great for her. I'm a little upset.

  15. 15

    You see Perez… Sharon Osbourne was right and you were wrong….. again…. Most americans wouldn't get her accent for sure. It should be Nicole Scherzinger who gets the spot. And aren't you tired of begging for things you obviously are not qualified for??? Nobody wants to hire you, just stick to writing your little Gaga posts…

  16. 16

    Re: Felicia N – i know ur entitled to your opinion… but the girl cant sing…autotune is her best friend!

  17. 17

    Who the hell cares what she's saying it's a dumb singing show, she's cute as hell, KEEP HER SIMON!

  18. 18

    even if that what you think of her singing ability .who said you have to be agreat singer to be ajudge let me ask you can simon paula abdul randy gakson jinnifer lopez sing the ansewr is NOOOOOOO. none of them cant sing .and for your information when she joined the uk x factor she brought with her 5 million viewrs

  19. 19

    i love cheryl cole but i'd rather her just stay on the uk version. the american version needs well known americans. this show is competing against american idol (which is doing rather well this season.. i LOVE jlo on it) and the new show on nbc with adam levine and cee lo. i do think she could be a star over here, just maybe find a different way to do so. im all for nicole on the show though! haha

  20. 20

    Re: oh come on – Simon - a Music manager and producer for over 25 years….Paula - A musican and performer (self made name)….Randy- a musican and producer…. Jennifer - performer (triple threat). And she doesnt use autotune. Cheryl…got in a band off a reality show…wasnt lead singer of girls aloud as NADINE COYLE had the VOICE of the groupd…smiled at simon…got xfactor gig …and her career was sorted…… shes not a self mad house hold name…everything is manufactured and fake…

  21. 21

    BREAKING: Person nobody cares about doesn't get plum on show nobody cares about.

    She isn't getting her money's worth with you, is she Perez? All the comments are about how nobody knows who she is nor cares. Add me to the chorus.

  22. 22

    Re: sd_man – defo think nicole should be a judge shes like the VOICE of all VOICES!!!

  23. 23

    you are complaining that she cant sing in your opinion and ive told you so are the other judges and yeas when you ever seen jennifer singing live she is always miming and cant sing Fact

  24. 24

    No one knows who she is. It makes no sense to put her in this role.

  25. 25

    booo! this really makes me sad. I love cheryl cole and i think she would be a great role model for everyone in the U.S. … i think people saying they don't know who she is is crap. Go into any child or kids cd collection from a couple of years ago, and pick up a Disney mania cd or anything disney and at least one Girls Aloud song is on it !!! X Factor won't be the same without her!

  26. 26

    Re: SimplyLorrie – you say she sucks as a judge, yet she has had two of her contestants win AND has had many that have come close to winning. And clearly she can sing because she wouldn't have made it into Girls Aloud, which was formed by a television SINGING COMPETITION. you need to get your facts straight!

  27. 27

    it's not so much about what she sounds like, it's just that she's REALLY boring. there's nothing really to her, kind of just another pretty girl who can't really sing insanely well.
    if you somehow manage to be boring in a nicki minaj video, well, that pretty much says it all

  28. 28

    Re: jeanmarie – couldnt agree more with ya haha!

  29. 29

    could not possibly care less about this woman

  30. Sanz says – reply to this


    Re: nicolesnooksc – She had 2 contestants win so what? It's not like they magically became amazing singers because of her aura of awesomeness. SHE did not choose those contestants either, they were chosen by all 4 of them then by her (90% what Simon says anyway behind the rolling camera) and then by the public. She made it into GA BECAUSE of her looks (and so did the others apart from Nadine, who can actually sing better than a karaoke fan). If you dig up her audition on youtube, the first thing that Luis and the other judge pointed out was that she's cute as a button. Not her vocal range. Not to mention the fact GA was just a band full of good looking chicks bringing out mediocre pop music for teenage girls to jazz out to at prom.

  31. 31

    Who the hell is she anyways?? She should stick to being famous where she is known to be, because that isn't here.

  32. 32

    Re: Sanz – BRILLAINT!!! appearently she abandoned her acts aswell after the show wen the other judges kept in contact with theirs nd advised them

  33. 33

    Re: coolfri

    I love British accents! :) I think it has more to do with no one here knows who she is.

  34. 34

    i love cheryl cole. I just found out about her and told my friends about her and now they love her too. I wish she would come here to be an x factor judge

    Why should her name be artificially, especially from you, Perez, the only place I've heard of her, put out? If she has a talent, let that drive her exposure. What does she do anyway?

  37. 37

    I think she's a great mentor, and not picking her because of her accent it's a ridiculous excuse. I'm from Barcelona and a huge fan of XFactorUK and I understand her perfectly. Maybe the reason is that she's not successful enough in the US, who knows, but she would be great judging the shows! Xx

  38. 38

    Lucky they got this right before it was too late. Hiring a convict would have been a bad move.

  39. 39

    Re: coolfri – Its not that hard for those of us who speak English but Americans don't really speak English now do they? :o P

  40. 40

    Re: Saetana – shut the fuck up bitch. If we don't…get off an AMERICAN site.

  41. 41

    Well they just lost me as a viewer. I stopped watching American Idol years ago and personally am not really that into these reality singing competitions. But I would DEFINITELY be watching if Cheryl was a judge. If she just has a small role now, I guess I'll just watch her clips online or something. VERY disappointed; I really wanted Cheryl to break North America…

  42. 42

    The accent thing is an excuse for all the Brits dumb enough to believe that is the reason. That's just the nice let down. Basically Fox does not want to pay some nobody who has been convicted of assault millions to judge on the show. I am an American who moved to the UK in Nov. and you all may be able to look past things like assault charges and not being able to sing(those who say she can are tone deaf and have zero knowledge about singing or music) but the US is not that easy. We have plenty of girls who lie about plastic surgery and can easily be autotuned, there is no need for us to outsource it.

  43. 43

    Thank god!

  44. 44

    Are you kidding me? "Her accent is hard to understand." wth, I live in the US and I can CLEARLY understand what she is saying, plus I love her accent. They should keep her on the panel & let her judge because she is amazing. & people in the UK like american music and what not YET us americans barley know any of the amazing music produced in the UK. SO. having Cheryl Cole here it would open us up to hear more. & wth, I want some good looking people on the panel, and funny people. Really dont want some old dude they planning on putting. DO it like American Idol. You got Jen the beautiful & Steven the joke & randy "theDog" ……. Be honest people, YOU dont want to be looking at a panel with a bunch of old people. No offense.
