Cheryl Cole Being Courted To Judge UK Version Of The Voice!

| Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity FeudsSimon CowellCherylX FactorReality TV


Looks like Cheryl Cole might land on her feet after all!

Even though the pop star was humiliated by being fired from the judging panel of both the US and UK versions of The X Factor, it appears that she's being courted from another reality competition - the upcoming British version of the insanely popular The Voice!

And according to reports, both ITV and BBC are in a serious bidding war over its rights!

A source explains:

'The hype around The Voice is now so great that ITV feels it has no choice but to be in the running for it. If the BBC got it - and managed to sign Cheryl - then it could snare loads of viewers away from The X Factor.'

Oh man! We're seriously hoping it works out!

And wouldn't it just be BRUTAL if The Voice ended up killing X Factor in the ratings?!

We certainly imagine Chezza would be pleased!

Despite Simon Cowell's public explanation and apology on her behalf, sources close to her say she's less than interested in patching up their friendship, and reveals:

"If Simon thinks he can claim it was a business arrangement that went wrong, he is insane. She wasn't uncomfortable on the show. She was enjoying herself. No-one complained at the time. Simon admits he got his top producer Richard Holloway to tell her she was off the US show - that's because he was afraid to do it himself. Cheryl trusted him implicitly and she doesn't do that with many people. He made a mockery of their friendship so now it's dead in the water."

Can't say we blame her, after everything she went through!

Karma certainly has a funny way of working things out, and we have a feeling that if The Voice catches on over there even a quarter of the way it did here, then the next season of The X Factor might be in a little trouble!

We'll be very curious to see how this develops!

What do U think?? Should Chezza judge for The Voice??

    I'm really tired of hearing about this bitch. I could care less about her or the redundant singing competition she'll be judging.

  2. 2

    She is cute and has big eyes and dimples. That makes people assume she is sweet and innocent. None of us really knows what happened, but just because she is cute does not mean she is totally blameless. Cute people can be nasty too - just like ugly people can be really nice.

  3. 3

    Who the fuck cares about this nobody. Stay in the UK for Christ sake! Who the fuck is she?

  4. 4

    Simon has been encouraging Cheryl to take the UK gig for The Voice
    Cheryl needs to learn not to have a thin skin if she wants longevity in her career
    it is called the music BUSINESS for a reason
    it's not personal-it's a business decision
    and her managers/handlers etc. need to get her to understand that
    she's a sweet girl and I enjoy her on UK X-Factor
    but even she must know that she's relatively new to the music world and she's no Celine Dionne or Barbra Streisand so she needs to move along when business decisions don't end up going her way

  5. 5

    What the hell is this sites obsession with this kunt…….WHO THE FUCK CARES!

  6. 6

    Simon helped to make her career better by chosing to add her to the panel of his X Factor show
    she got massive weekly exposure that she wouldn't have otherwise received
    not to mention massive money!!i

    When stealing stories today you seemed to miss this one….."Lady Gaga's Born This Way set another record this week, but not one that Gaga's team will be happy about. Sales of the album dropped off by 84% from its sizzling (but discount-inflated) opening week. That's the the steepest drop-off in sales, expressed in a percentage basis, of any of the 17 albums that sold 1 million units in a week in Nielsen SoundScan history..
    Gaga's album sold 174,000 copies this week, down from 1,108,000 last week, when sales were goosed by a two-day, 99-cent sale at Amazon."

    Only you care about her. No one else.

  9. 9

    Short on talent? Show you tits! We have enough big boobed, bimbos, short on talent. We need not import them.

  10. 10

    Who cares?!?!?!? uhg!!!

  11. 11

    Even though I dont think she is particularly talented and I dont care too much reading about her on this site, I cant stand Simon Cowell and the whole Simon-Paula banter has been overdone on AI and noone is interested in a rip-off of AI. I love The Voice and that would be a poetic justice and a slap on Simon's face!

  12. 12

    Wish somebody would court her in the States so she can have her shot over here. Just sayin'!

  13. 13

    Simon Cowell said he hates seeing Cheryl hurt and yet it was Simon that stab Cheryl in the back. he went behind her back to remove her from the panel. and then Simon didn't even have the courage to tell Cheryl she was fired.Simon sent another friend to tell Cheryl that she was fired. of course Simon says he was worried about her. Simon should have talked to Cheryl first and tried to come up with a consensus decision , because it was clear that Cheryl didn't want to loss the U.S.job . PERSONAL NOTE. I WAS AT THE SEAR'S CENTRE AUDITIONS AND CHERYL WAS GREAT AS A JUDGE AND SHE WAS HAPPY. but Simon instead let the press run with nasty story about Cheryl for ten days.before Simon gave his side of the story to save his face, well done Simon not only you caused Cheryl so much stress, Simon you also humiliated Cheryl in public. YOU SIMON KNEW THAT CHERYL WOULD NEVER CALL YOU AFTER ALL THAT HAPPEN. YOU SIMON STAB CHERYL IN THE BACK. WOW SIMON WHAT A FRIEND YOU ARE? I WILL NEVER WATCH X FACTOR U.S.

  14. 14

    Love the titty-revealing dress. Are those brass bull testicles on her belt? Good choice…..weirdo.

    The Voice in America is actually GOOD with talented and well known singers as judges.. If she's one of the judges for the UK version it'll suck!! She mimes it'd be so hypocritical for her to be judging other people's voices and not looks when all she is herself is a pretty girl with a mediocre voice- she is NOT famous for her voice. Simon's probably only encouraging her so that it won't be as good as his shows.. nadinsuidaid.

  17. 17

    The X Factor is mega in the UK, 20 million people watched the final last year….that's 1 in 3 people in the UK! After that kind of success the only way is down surely. I think Simon has seriously misjudged things this year, the UK XF is now without him, Cheryl and Dannii and US XF is a load of has been's and Steve Jones presenting…..that dude can't present for shit. I think it's going to tank big time on both sides of the atlantic. I'm a bit disappointed in Cheryl in the first place for ditching UK to and crack the US, but I think Simon had a hand in pushing her into it. We brits don't need to crack he US, in the same way you don't give a shit about us we frankly don't give a shit about the US. The talent over here is without doubt 50 times better than US, I watched the Idol final and seriously….if that's the best you've got out of 300 million people then please! Watch anyone from last year's UK XF on you'll see what I mean! Cheryl should totally be on The Voice and realise that she's already in the best country in the world for new music and musical talent….no need to go anywhere else! You're back home now..UK has love for ya Cheryl! x

    Re: charlie1982 – the majority of the uk don't.

    The BBC would be burying this show to it's grave even before air if they get this untalented thug who has NO VOICE herself to judge a show that isnt about image (looks is the only asset Tweedy can claim) but rather vocal ability. For anyone to suggest a show that is solely about substance over style should have someone who apart from the constant sob stories and ass kissing the higher ups has only maintained a career through her looks is a joke.
    The BBC is a state channel, the uk is facing drastic cuts and people are living in harder times not a single PENNY of tax payers money should be used to subsidize this untalented miming fake criminal. People should demand their license back if this goes ahead.
    But then again…what does greedtweedy care about the public? this is a woman who charged £220000 for "singing" & appearing 35 minute at a breast cancer charity gig, so I doubt she has the moral compass to not demand an obscene amount of money for doing next to jack all other than milk another show for publicity. btw A lovely person she is as the toilet attendant and wagner would know.

  20. 20

    What and you're speaking for the majority of the UK then are you? Can't be coincidence that XF viewing figures went up dramatically when they got rid of Sharon Osbourne and brought in Cheryl. I smell a rat Le Rat…..your main beef with Cheryl seems to be that she's pretty….. She's not a great singer true…and I'm not really a pop music type of person, but you can't deny for where she came from, out of a Newcastle council estate with no money, where everyone else was taking drugs, getting in gangs, robbing people whatever, she's made the most of what she's got, taken her chances and made something of her life. I doubt she'll be losing much sleep over the likes of you.

  21. 21

    Perez, AGAIN you got it wrong. The BBC have already won the rights to THE VOICE and its scheduled to air in 2012. Give them some credit. They are NOT as you say 'courting Cheryl Cole'. Why would they? Unlike X Factor this show is slightly more respected as a musical talent show. She is neither musical, talented nor respected in the industry. Plus shes just got fired from a Simon Cowell show. The BBC totally disassociate themselves from all things Simon Cowell. Thank goodness.

  22. 22

    what the hell is that thing on her dress? I thought an IUD went on the inside.

  23. 23

    Uh, her midsection is being attacked by alien pods and nobody notices??

  24. 24

    How many articles per day do you have to post about that talentless twit?? Not only that but you always go out of your way to make her look like a victim.


    Here you said: "Even though the pop star was humiliated by being fired from the judging panel of both the US and UK versions of The X Factor".—-Thats BULLSHIT and you know it. Stop tryin to mislead the readers. She voluntarily quit UK X Factor job, they were even gonna double her salary but she turned them down, she didnt even let them the bosses know that she was not gonna be on the show anymore, she just stop answering their calls when they called her. classy. And Why dont you also mention that she got paid over $1.5 million for 3 day's work on US X Factor, for doing nothing!! No, those things you dont wanna mention right?…No, cause you're always out to make her look like a victim and you dont ever mention the real truth about her.


    Altough Greedy Tweedy has no talent whatsover I hope that she gets this Voice gig so she can stay the hell in the UK and mever come back here!

  25. 25

    Butterfly, you might have got rid of Cheryl but there's still two other brits on the show…Simon and Steve…yeah that's Steve Jones who can't present and has never presented a live TV in the UK yet Simon seems to think he can front the US XF….disaster written all over it, I predict Cheryl's not gonna be the last brit to get fired on that show!

  26. 26

    Re: ms trudy – She's wearing Miranda Ker's red carpet dress which looks amazing and fabulous on Miranda but unfortunately not so much on Cheryl. LOL at your comment. LOL

  27. 27

    Yes, I heard that she's in talks to join the UK's voice which would be a good kick in the face to Simon! She should do it! I guess. I don't really like the voice. Then again I haven't watched it…! So I don't really know what to think of it?

  28. 28

    Heres something, why do we Brits even need this crap! We have too many talent shows, just stick with the same shit every year then add another to compete with them, i dont even watch the crap and dont plan too.

    I heard that she may host The Voice. Honestly, what I want her to do next is get Girls Aloud back together and tour the world and open the London Olympics.

  31. 31

    But here's the thing, Perez, The Voice ISN'T that big here.I mean, maybe it is in some areas, but not anywhere that I've seen. I'll give you an example: I haven't watched any AI or The Voice this season (as a matter of fact, any season). Yet, I know most all of AI's finalists. How many contestants do I know from The Voice?? One, and I don't even know her from there!! It's that Frenchie chick. And just like many of y'all, I had heard of her from Borat. So you need to cool your breaks with that Voice mess until it actually gets more of a pop culture status.

    Wake up america you are starting to fall for her PR teams sob story's Cheryl is getting everything she deserves cause Karma is a wonderful Thing.
    she is a nasty Bitch, she has always been the one in the group to push her way to the front and spout off nasty bitchy comments about anyone else competing in the music charts with them that week, All this im a sweet act is fake for the camera's she is nasty, always has been and always will be it just took 2 years for her true colours to come out on TV in front of the nation, She has never been named as the nations sweetheart by us the nation it was her PR Team who said that after she milked her divorce and she stupidly started believing her own hype.

    When someone pays your salary, it's not a friendship per say. It's merely a business relationship that can go into the friendly zone. What a haughty green horn she is. She's going to feel pretty foolish in a decade or two. I know 5 people right now who are twice as talented as this one is, and making peanuts. She's behaving like a ruddy ingrate. She's cut HERSELF loose, in spite of a stunning replacement offer in the U.K.; and from the article above, we might know why. She's blaming others while she allegedly could be angling her way to do The Voice.

  34. 34

    She doesn't have a voice! She was fine on the X Factor but it'd be a joke to put her on a show about real talent.

  35. 35

    Cheryl Cole on THE VOICE :D Haha!

  36. 36

    Honestly, she's proven she is a great judge and the public loves her. But wouldn't it be the greatest way to reward her fans than to focus on the music again? I'd love Girls Aloud to use this time to get together and release another album. It's been too long since the last!

  37. 37

    Re: Butterfly. – The money she got paid from the US X Factor was warranted. She left her job in the UK to come work in the US. Fox executives , who secured her the job, let her go. It was in the contract and they had to live it up. That's what happens when you relocate people and promise them a job. She's no fool, her lawyers made sure her ass was covered if worse came to worse. I certainly applaud them for being smart. Fox majorly fucked up, not her.

  38. 38

    AMEN!!! Good for Cheryl! Simon acted like a coward (for dumping her through a producer) and now Cheryl has the opportunity to make him pay for his betrayal. The Voice is a great concept and Cheryl + revenge = ratings gold. Simon must be shakin' in his boots!

    Oh please, I don't care whether its the BBC or ITV who get The Voice in the end but please don't have Cheryl Cole as a judge, the competition would immediately lose a large amount of credibility. I love the idea of The Voice, judging purely by what the contestant's voice sounds like but Cheryl Cole can barely sing herself and was a pretty useless judge on the X Factor, she rarely gave any constructive criticism and lurched from being too "nicey nicey" to being a real bitch (with Wagner for example), she lost a lot of support over here in the UK with her behaviour during the last series of the X Factor and this debacle over the US X Factor has done her no favours at all. Most of us are sick of her here in the UK, try getting someone with real talent (like Christina on the US version of The Voice) to judge instead ;o)

    Re: Rohan – And what exactly has any of that to do with a post about Cheryl Cole? Idiot!

  42. 42

    Wao, why is it that some people do feel the need to be little others, by calling them names, in order to feel better about themselves. Is Cheryl; the best singer in the world?, no but so is Nicole, and so are other even sucessful artist in the states and abroad. GET OVER YOURSELVES PEOPLE. GO DO SOMETHING NICE WITH YOURLIVES, AND YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO BE ON EVERY WEBSITES, JUST TO MAKE HORRIBLE COMMENTS ABOUT PEOPLE LIKE CHERYL, INORDER TO FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELVES.

  43. 43

    I like her. She has integrity, good for her.

  44. 44

    I heard they are trying to get Adele to be on UK's The Voice…..now there's a true voice…..that would be frickin awesome! I tell you what, they should get Alexandra Burke on it as well….2008 XF winner…..if you want to hear some truly inspired singing watch her on Youtube singing Hallelujah in the XF final or her duet with Beyonce….will send chills down your spine, no lie! Don't know what men they should get on it, Chris Martin has a great voice.
