Hmm…wonder why…???

Cher looks great and all, and of course we’ve been big fans of the song since January, but we actually

Chezza Snubbed! Not Getting The US X Factor Judging Position?!

Filed under: Simon CowellCheryl ColeX Factor

We guess she's out! But still - any appearance on the show will be a good profile boost for her!

Although Cheryl Cole was originally expected to take a seat on the judges panel of the US version of The X Factor, it appears as though her role has been moved to that of Simon Cowell's helper, much like Sinatta's across the pond, because execs are concerned that her accent is too strong for her to be marketable here!

The insiders explain:

‘People just don’t know who she is over there and people struggle to understand what she is saying. Simon is consoling her with the offer of helping him win the first series, which would give her profile a massive boost. If audiences and contestants can't understand her, it is actually a regulatory offense. Simon Cowell is still one of her biggest supporters. But even though the X Factor is his idea it’s the executives at Fox who have the ultimate say over the make-up of the show.'

Disappointing!

But hey - it's still a step in the right direction for her to get her name out there with American audiences, so we wouldn't be too upset!

And WE can always fill in for her on the judges table! Ha! Just saying!

What do U think?? Should Chezza get the judging spot??

Simon Doing BOTH US And UK Versions Of X Factor!

Filed under: Simon CowellCheryl ColeX FactorReality TV

This is going to be QUITE the undertaking!

But we'd be sad if he were missing from either shows!

Although there's been quite a lot of speculation as to Cheryl Cole's role on the new, American version of The X Factor, no one has really brought up what exactly Simon Cowell will be doing, and whether or not he, himself, will be leaving the original UK reality competition!

However, sources are now suggesting that the judge will be appearing on BOTH versions of the show!

The insider says:

"It looks like there will be a lot of transatlantic shuttling involved."

No kidding!

If this truly is the case, then we are NOT going to be jealous of his schedule this year!

But we imagine that if anyone can make it work, it's him!

Hang in there, bb!

Amazing!

The semi-final round of X Factor pulled in a record-breaking 15.2 million viewers this past Saturday, beating out last year's episode by 1.4 million!

Holy shiz! That's incredible!

We wonder if Simon and company can get those kind of numbers for the upcoming US version of the competition!

Torchwood Actor Certain Bisexual Character Will Remain In US Version!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayAnglophilia

We hope this turns out to be true!!

We reported earlier this year that FOX was looking to re-make the popular UK sci-fi series Torchwood for American audiences, and almost immediately people began to speculate whether or not the network would change one of the main character's sexual preference!!

Openly gay Scottish actor John Barrowman portrayed Captain Jack Harkness in the UK version, and has admitted he would LOVE to bring the character to American audiences, but only if the character continues hooking up with dudes!!

Barrowman says:

"Julie has said, as has Russell, that there will be no Torchwood without John Barrowman as Capt. Jack… If I am asked to do Torchwood again, I will do it at the drop of a hat - whether it's in America or back in Britain or if it's for a film. I absolutely love Capt. Jack. The last thing I would want would be for Jack to become this heterosexual, straight hero. He's an omnisexual guy. He likes men, women, aliens, whatever. I think we should continue going down that route."

We sincerely hope that US producers honor the integrity of the original and agree to those terms! Do we really need ANOTHER womanizing, super hetero scoundrel type??

We'll keep our fingers crossed.

What do U think?? Would U watch an 'omnisexual' male sci-fi character??
