Nicole Scherzinger to replace Cheryl Cole on X-factor?May 26th, 2011 - 7:58 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Los Angeles, May 26 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Though Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole has been confirmed as a judge of the US version of the X Factor, new reports suggest that her accent might get the producers of the show to axe her. Cole has been with the show since the audition started but the report says the show executives are not comfortable with her accent.
Sky reported that fears that contestants and fans might not be able to understand Cole has caused the bosses of the show to reconsider their decision to sign her. The 27-year-old is not convinced that her accent is a problem at all.
She told reporters that, “I’ve been here a lot, I’ve got a lot of American friends and we have the odd moments where they’re like ‘What? - What did that mean?’ - you know, a phrase.”
TMZ reports that Nicole Scherzinger has been lined up to replace Cole on the show. The final of the show is expected to take place from September. The show is exclusive to FOX and it will be the first time that the show will be taking place in the United States.
The other judges of the show are Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and LA Reid.
