As it turns out, Cheryl Cole won’t be part of The X-Factor, period. Neither the U.S version or the U.K show! After last week’s embarrassing ordeal of being dropped from The X-Factor, U.S, Cheryl seemed to be headed across the pond to continue judging on Simon Cowell‘s (he’s executive producer) show’s original panel. She was ignominiously dropped right after the show’s first auditions in America and replaced by Nicole Scherzinger. Reports suggested that Paula Abdul and Cheryl weren’t exactly getting along as well.
News has now surfaced that Simon’s booted her from the U.K panel as well. He announced the judge’s line-up for the new season and while it includes Kelly Rowland, Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and N-Dubz member Tulisa Contostavious, there’s no mention of Ms. Cole. What did she do it piss off the boss? More reports have popped up that Cheryl wasn’t cooperating at all and felt that the whole mess was a massive snub on Simon’s part. A source revealed, “Simon offered her an olive branch to come back but she didn’t take it. Now it is business as usual as far as he is concerned. He hopes that in six months it could be ‘Cheryl who?’ and people will be talking about the new judges instead…” The Cowell has spoken. And he’s normally right!
