Cowell hints ’special’ Cheryl Cole will join U.S. X FactorApril 26th, 2011 - 6:42 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 26 (ANI): Simon Cowell has dropped his biggest hint yet that singer Cheryl Cole is set to join him as a judge on the American ‘X Factor’.
Rumours have been doing the rounds that executives at the Fox TV network were worried about the 27-year-old’s Geordie accent - and her being unknown in the States.
But Cowell, 51, said bosses had “fallen in love” with Cheryl - and reckons she will become as big in America as she is over here.
“This girl is special. She’s got a great ability to communicate. She’s a great judge. She’s smart,” the Sun quoted Cowell as saying.
“It’s just a hunch. If people take to her like the British public did, I think she’s going to do really well in America. Fox were desperate to hire her.”
Cowell added the US X Factor deal was “almost conditional” on her taking the gig.
It is thought Cheryl’s deal will be signed off in the next few days. (ANI)
