Cheryl Cole Third Judge on The X Factor

Singer Cheryl Cole has signed onto be the third judge in the upcoming American version of ‘The X Factor,’ TVLine is reporting. She will be joining record executive and producer Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Simon Cowell, who will also be executive producing the talent show.

Cole served as a judge for three seasons on the UK version of ‘The X Factor’ with Cowell, who hinted late last month that the singer would be joining him again. The fourth judge to appear on the panel as yet to be announced, but it’s rumored that Cowell’s ‘American Idol’ former co-judge is being considered for the job.

Cole was chosen to be a judge on the upcoming FOX series in part because she’s a multi-platinum-selling solo artist. She is also a member of Girls Aloud, one of the UK’s most successful female vocal groups of all time.

After the announcement was made that Cole is going to be a judge, Cowell released a statement saying “I’m thrilled for (Cheryl). She is massively excited about this show, and has been fantastic to work with.” He added that she can spot talent. Cole saidd that she can’t decided whether she’s more excited to find new singers, or “for the unbelievable amount of amusement and entertainment I will have watching (Simon) doing everything and anything he can to beat me.”
