Is Cheryl Cole Still On The Judge Short List For The X Factor???

| Filed under: Simon CowellCherylX Factor


We really, really, really, really, really want to tell you yes. Course, we'd also really, really love it if Simon Cowell showed up at our doorstep with a box of chocolates and a 50 page contract in an attempt to woo us into being a judge too, but some dreams remain strictly thus.


Anyway, word is that the fat lady hasn't quite sung yet when it comes to Cheryl Cole getting a coveted seat at the judges table for The X Factor.

Though Cheryl reportedly told her staff this week that she "never stood a chance" of getting hired, word has it Simon hasn't given up on her. Apparently, he is still trying to persuade the FOX bosses that she could have the same success that Piers Morgan had on America's Got Talent.

That's true! America totally got behind that Brit. We can't see why they wouldn't embrace Chezza in the same way!

Give her a shot, America! You're going to like what you see, we promise!

    She knows NOTHING about music! So no. she shouldn't get the job! AND, dont ever say that she can have the same success as Piers! He knows what he's talking about.. He is a smart educated man!

  2. 2

    you're going to fucking hate her.

  3. 3

    While I'm not going to comment on Cheryl's ability to actually be a judge on the show, I don't think it'd be a wise choice for her to pick her simply because she's such an unknown to American culture. The only real reason I know her is because I visit this site…that's it!! Pick someone from within American culture, don't outsource another job!!

    Piers Morgan have a credible background as a critic. He also have charming British accent. Cheryl Cole's judging in UK X Factor is CRAP. She can't even give a decision when both of her acts are in the bottom two. Simon probably just want her in because he can manipulate her.

  5. 5

    Ahh STFU Perez. Dweeb

  6. 6

    NO. dammit perez..no matter how many people she sleeps with..she will NOT GET IT. no one knows who she is..and i know why youre campaigning for you because if she does get it (she wont)..shell recommend you join the judges panel as a thank you to all of her coverage on your site..NO FUCKING THANKS! if they want us x factor to fail then theyll hire you.

  7. 7

    why would they hire this unknown for the American version. answer: they won't because no one will watch.

    Cheryl Cole is a chav. We don't need English judges when we have more-qualified and more-talented entertainers right here in the U.S. I don't know what your thing for her is, Perez, but I suggest that you stop pushing this tramp on us. Most of us don't care about her, and aren't interested in her. YOU may love her, but that's not an indication that she's worth a crap, because you have no taste. So please: Drop the whole "Chezza" bullshit.

  9. 9

    Pleasethe show wont stand a chance when the competition show The Voice got xtina. That would be so stupid!

  10. 10

    Big joke people! Cheryl is the best judge on the UK X-factor! she's and Will be amazing !!!whatever she does !!!!
    love her

  11. 11

    Cheryl WAS a good judge on the X Factor over here in the UK in her 1st year because she seemed to genuinely care about it, now she's more interested in how much fame she'll get from it, hence releasing her 2 solo albums right in the middle of each series. Cheryl doesn't have the talent to judge other people's talent. She is just a face in every newspaper & magazine. She is NOT an artist, never has been & never will be. In fact, she's a waste of column inches. Actually, yeah, take her over to US X Factor so we don't have to put up with her as much.

  12. 12

    Does anyone still care ????

  13. 13

    Are you back on the payroll? A few weeks ago you actually made some sense by saying that Cheryl Cole is a nobody! America does not need the British to entertain them. American Idol is doing great without Simon and Piers show continues to fall in the ratings each week. Simon has ruined music with his productions and its time for him to retire.

  14. 14

    Re: cripbabe111 – cheers to that! she's already starting to become a has-been in her music career as well!

  15. 15

    Bitches STFU she won 2 out of 3 in the UK version and the one she lost she was with 2 acts in the final, you haters know shit, piers is fucking educated and his show is a sinking ship, I much rather have Cheryl Cole in that seat then Jessica Simpson.

  16. 16

    Cheryl will be an amazing judge on the american version of the x factor…and all this about her experience and credibility is bullshit…She had the winning acts twice in a row since she has been on and girls aloud have been huge in the UK and has plenty of experience from that as well…anyways i love cheryl xoxo (cheryl's soldier in Chicago!)

  17. 17

    Re: Matt Xavier – Yeah, and we all know why she had 2 acts in the final don't we? Cher Lloyd lost out on the public vote to Mary Byrne and conveniently it went to a judges vote (altered when the votes didn't swing in Cher's direction). Cheryl Cole got the pick of the bunch through her buddy Cowell strengthening the chance of her act winning the final each year It has nothing to do with her being a great mentor and judge and all to do with the ridiculous manipulation that went on. Cheryl Cole does NOT deserve the judges place and it's as simple as that. I just hope the Americans don't stand for the crap that Britain has.

  18. 18

    I don't understand why people are hating on cheryl cole so much. Being canadian maybe I don't know what "America" wants but lots of today's acts can't sing a note to save their life. All people seem to want is a pretty face and a good dancer. Cheryl's is both, she's also much more articulate than Paula abdul for example. She's easy to understand as far as i'm concerned. Also let's face it most guys would welcome her on the show lol she's gorgeous !!

  19. 19

    of course she's still in the running. why do you think she's been in LA for the past three weeks?

  20. 20

    She's smoking hot. Talent, I have no idea as I've never heard a thing from her. But holy smokes.

  21. 21

    Again, Chavyl Tweedy Cole is a crap singer, talentless and Simon Cowshit puppet!

  22. Lumie says – reply to this


    Oh, come on. The only reason this girl is even famous is because she's pretty . She can't sing, knows nothing about music and is a horrible judge in the UK X Factor.

    Cheryl Cole doesn't know anything about the music industry? Fucking PLEASE. She's been going hard in the music industry for over 8 years now! She's released and promoted an album [with Girls Aloud or solo] every single year since she became famous. And the fact that she became famous through a reality singing show makes her VERY qualified for this as she knows exactly what these contestants are going through!
    And it's very true…North America had no clue who Simon Cowell or Piers Morgan were when their respective reality shows debuted. Now Simon is one of the most 'love to hate' personalities and Piers Morgan took over for Larry-freaking-King! And if she needs anything to fall back on, Cheryl is incredibly attractive to boot! Why wouldn't American audiences love her?

  25. 25

    How much is her PR company paying you? Hmm, Must be a lot…

  26. 26

    You Americans know nothing about Cheryl. Why the hell are you all slagging her off when you don't know about her, you only know what you're being told. There's a reason that she's known as the 'nation's sweetheart' in the UK: She's amazing! As someone said she won two out of the three of the UK X Factor's she's been on. She's been in the music business for over 8 years, is in the most successful British girlband EVER (Girls Aloud), even beating the Spice Girls and she had the fourth biggest download of the DECADE with Fight For This Love. She is a multiplatinum selling solo artist and she went in the top 3 of the charts across Europe. You all need to give her a chance. We've embraced loads of your tacky American stars, Chezza is a million times better than them and her story is an amazing and inspiring one if you know it.

  27. 27

    Cheryl is nothing without Simon, the girl knows nothing about judging. Simon made all her decisions for her on Uk x f. The girl needs this break for her self promotion in the States, she don't care about anything or anybody but herself. She thinks she is to big a name to do the Uk xf now, but one day she will come falling back to normal land. She is not the nations sweet hart in the uk either, most of the uk cant stand her. America would be silly to give her a crack over there when they have plenty of people much better than her that cant get a crack at it.

  28. 28

    I don't think so, coz Simon definitely want's Paula Abdul on the show and there is no way that Paula and Cheryl would be on the same panel.

  29. 29

    Re: bellebeexo – I agree with you on that, assume you are a fellow Brit, Cheryl Cole is an admittedly pretty woman with an accent so thick you could cut it with a knife, little talent and no judging ability. She also appears to be rather unpleasant at times (and I'm talking about Wagner not the toilet attendent, although I didn't think you could get a work permit for the States with a criminal record, not 100% sure on that though), why on earth would the Americans want her when they have plenty of (talented) female celebrities of their own?

  30. 30

    American Idol has a strong country music influence this year. Another genre Cheryl Cole has'nt a clue about. She is very limited and only likes the music of whoever is successful at the moment. Terrible choice. Dump her. Dump her now.

  31. 31

    Cheryl has always done well with her contestants in X Factor,and love her or hate her she has been very successful despite only having a mediocre voice.
    I do think the US will struggle with her accent though, i do and i'm English!

  32. 32

    Perez, how much is her PR company paying you to promote this bitch? Every freaking day its the same shit with you always talking about her. She cant be famous only cause of who she knows or who she sleeps with. She probably fucked Simon in hopes he'd get her the job. The only reason why she's semi famous in the UK is cause of her private life. She is not really known as a singer, she's more of a celebrity over there. She fucked Will.i.am from the Blacked Eyed Peas when he produced tracks for her latest album and she's been hooking up with 50 ent in hoped he also help her career. Again, you cant be famous just for who you know or who you sleep with.

  33. 33

    What logic are you using that Americans support Piers??! Only some dumb morons at CNN would consider giving him a job.

  34. 34

    Re: gilman – agreed. Who's watching Piers show? O'Reilly or Hannity kills him at whatever time he is on.

    Cheryl is easy on the eyes and if its between her and Jessica simpson, I would pick Cheryl.

  35. 35

    Re: Luucyy – Cheryl is NOT known as the nation's sweetheart in UK. She's known as a thug who's husband cheated on her which seemed to tug at Simon Cowell's heart strings. He seems besotted with her but he is one of the few.

  36. 36

    Why do you still talk about this girl??? She sucks major balls and according to what I've heard, so does her ex husband!

  37. 37

    she s a toilet attendant bashing thug, who has no talent whatsoever. she does not know to judge, and simon is always sucking up 2 her 4 no reason whatsoever. I cant beleive they would even consider someone who cant sing and is a racist thug to be on the panel. why dont u talk about that Perez.

  38. 38

    i think she will get it but he is promoting her by these story but in my opinion she is not huge pop star even in uk no need for x factor to be a star in usa and for piers morgan i dont know how he get america got talent but it was the debut of talent shows comming from uk so he has his chance but if he will not have cheryl who will have?
