Fox’s debut of The X Factor next year will be judged by UK judges Cheryl Cole and Nicole Scherzinger, plus Simon Cowell. That’s according to Simon’s close friend and America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan, who revealed the news to News of the World.
Cheryl Cole is one of the judges of the UK’s version of X Factor, and she was previously reported to be joining the US version along with the UK’s version’s host, Dermot O’Leary.
Scherzinger, who just won Dancing with the Stars 10, first appeared on The WB’s Popstars in 2001, which formed the girl group Eden’s Crush. She joined the UK’s X Factor as a guest judge this summer.
