The X Factor Upfront Footage WITH Chezza Hits The Web!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsPaula AbdulSimon CowellCherylX Factor

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??

    No I will not miss her. I am sick of reading about the millions Cheryl Cole made off of two weeks of work.

  2. 2

    It's hard to miss someone you are unfamiliar with. However, I have zero interest in this show. I'm fed up with talent contests. Give me good drama or comedy a la HBO or Showtime any day.

  3. 3

    the truth about the X Factor U.S. is that Fox and the producers did not want two British people on the panel and that is why Cheryl lost the job. nothing to do with accents or performance. in fact the census is that 86% of those polled wanted Cheryl to stay. TO FOX ENTERTAINMENT BOSS MIKE DARNELL X FACTOR U.S. PRODUCERS IT IS YOUR LOST.YOUR BEHAVIOUR IS APPALLING. I WILL NEVER WATCH X FACTOR U.S.

    I'm gonna miss her, and she's on back on the UK X Factor over here, so it's crap… hopefully she'll assist Simon at his Judge's House stage and then get a judging position next year….. only a matter of time till Paula's pill habit rumours kick into gear again…. Nicole did a great job last year on UK X Factor so we'll have to see about her!

    Cheryl looked just fine to me. She seemed sweet and she looked absolutely gorgeous. I think she outshined Paula and that was probably the real reason why they fired her. Cheryl was robbed. I really wanted her on that show. America would have loved her. :(

    Re: mistique

    100% agree! Have seen her on XF in UK and she is stunning, smart, funny, great comments. Simon, Fox, whoever…TOTALLY screwed this up. I won't be watching

    She is absolutely ADORABLE in that clip and would have been fabulous on the show. Bottom line is, the same thing that happened on the UK version would have happened here which is, SHE would have become the star of the show. The year she 1st appeared on UK XF viewership was up over 4 million. I don't think Simon wanted any attention taken off him(and his massive ego) or Paula and her insane comments.

    To replace her with shkjkjkzinger is unbelievable! She can barely string 2 coherent sentences together! Fox & stupid Simon definitely went with the wrong girl.

    Wow, what a big deal over a dumb singing talent contest. Mario, I watched that clip you showed from The Voice with that Maroon 5 guy and Christian Aguwhocares and had that been a competition song, it would have been boo'd off the stage. The Maroon guy (sorry, I don't know his name) was offkey in many places and Christina was too busy showing off by saying 'ha' after every line. And where do these supposed stars even go? Other than Kelly Clarson and possibly Carrie Underwood - who has really made an impact on pop music?

    Actually I think you can see here that Cheryl and Paula did get on well as friends, if you watch the clip, right at the end as they're walking off Paula runs to catch up to Cheryl and they both put their arms round each other. I don't think it was Paula who did anything shady to get rid of Cheryl, looks like they got on fine. Basically it was Simon, he signed up Cheryl because he didn't know if he would be able to get Paula (the money she was demanding or whatever it was) past Fox, Paula literally didn't sign up until the morning of the first auditions! So, Simon got Cheryl on board as his insurance policy in case he couldn't get Paula. The trouble for Cheryl was that both Cheryl and Paula worked well as judges because of the flirty rivalry they had with Simon, they have a very similar relationship with Simon and you can't have two people out of a panel of 4 that share that dynamic, it wouldn't work. Once he got Paula on board (at the last minute) he knew he had to get rid of Cheryl simply because more people know Paula in USA. And the UK X Factor was in a crisis with it's judges at that time so he cooked up the excuse of sending Cheryl back over to save it. Problem was she didn't stand for him mucking her around like that. Shame really.

    Actually in the UK we've had quite a few people who have done well off the back of these shows. From X Factor there was Leona Lewis, Alexandra Burke, JLS all still big in the UK. Girls Aloud (Cheryl's band) are one of the biggest girl bands in the UK ever, Susan Boyle… haha! Last year's X factor was the best ever, Rebecca Ferguson, Cher Lloyd, One Direction all could do quite well. The top 4 last year could all sing really very well (esp Rebecca and Matt Cardle…watch his performance of First Time), the problem always is they rely on other people to write songs for them. So far there's never been a Lady Gaga, i.e. great performer and a great songwriter. Plus it's all pop music which isn't really proper music imho!

    So, who'd Nicole sleep with?

  12. 12

    Re: charlie1982 – Well said.

  13. 13

    she looks absolutely fine to me in this video, no nervousness, no awkwardness. i don't get it, but i guess we'll never know the truth. she's certainly pissed off at simon about something, though.

  14. 14

    The only qualified judge with a real talent on that on the show is Alex Reid. Nicole is not qualified singer nor a judge, she's better of a dancer!!!!!….Paula needs to be a judge on "so you think you can dance", and not the x factor. Simon on the other hand has lost he's spark.

  15. 15

    I think she would have been great, just never got the chance. Maybe Paula, Simon and Cheryl, were stuck in an awkward triangle? Nicole would be perfect for the UK X Factor as she did well before.

  16. 16

    I loved X Factor for the first three seasons, then Dannii Minogue joined, then Cheryl and it all had become about the looks, popularity and NOT talent.

    Cheryl who? Nicole FTW!

    She is nasty piece of work, who got was coming to her. No talent, No brains. If this latest rumour is true that she has taken an injuction out against ANBODY taking photos of her in public ( including her own stupid deluded fans) could face jail, than this proves just how self-centered she really is. Ashley Cole would be a fool to take that woman back, cheat or not, she is just using him since she loved milking the media with the "long-suffering wife" act and the "shes too good for him" mantra really played to her ego.

  21. 21

    No I wont miss her. I wont miss someone who I was never familiar to begin with. why you still talking about it?
