Don't toy with us, Reid! We're not going to be pleased if this turns out to be false.
According to reports, L.A. Reid, who is the only person officially signed on to judge the American version of The X Factor, has confessed that U.K. judge, Cheryl Cole, will definitely be a part of the new panel. Supposedly, Chezza is in the middle of tying up some loose ends and then the announcement will be made.
Reid let the news slip as he was talking about their main competition, American Idol, and how he thought their show will compare. He said:
“We’re gonna compete against American Idol just fine. I’m very confident. But along with Simon Cowell and Cheryl, I don’t know who the other judge is.”
Well, you knew more than us…supposedly.
Until we hear the official word from Simon, we're remaining skeptical. Also until then, we'll continue to petition for our top choice to be selected for the panel:
PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ!
