It’s Official: Nicole Scherzinger Replaces Cheryl Cole on “The X Factor”

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



It’s official.

Nicole Scherzinger is replacing Cheryl Cole on “The X Factor,” producers announced today.

“Nicole will join Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul on their search across America to find the next global superstar or group to win the life-changing $5 million recording deal.”

Steve Jones has been named the show’s sole host.

Cole’s ouster was originally reported last month, but stories in recent days suggested that she could still be involved in the talent competition show, which premieres in September.

Now the Scherzinger-for-Cole move is official.
