Aww! What could have been!
This is actually pretty sad!
Check out the first footage from the US version of The X Factor, which was shown to advertisers at the FOX upfronts last month, and still features Cheryl Cole as a judge, alongside Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and L.A. Reid (above)!
Only a week after this was filmed, poor Chezza was axed.
Which now even makes LESS sense to us, because as one can clearly hear, her accent is completely understandable, and she seems to have a lot of good input on the panel!
It will be very inneresting to see how they integrate this footage into the series once Nicole Scherzinger takes over full time.
Such a shame!
What do U think?? Will U miss Chezza on the judges panel??
