Cheryl Cole Confirmed for X-Factor!

It's official: Cheryl Cole has been confirmed as a judge on the American version of X-Factor. Now we have some great eye candy during the show!

After months of speculation, Simon confirmed that she'll be joining him and L.A. Reid on the judge's panel.

Cheryl said: "I'm so excited to be taking part in the American version of 'The X Factor'.

"I absolutely love it here in the UK, and with the talent they have out in America, I'm sure we're going to find someone very special. I can't wait to get started.

She even joked about her competitive relationship with Simon saying:

"I just can't decide whether I am more excited to find and nurture the talent or for the unbelievable amount of amusement and entertainment I will have watching Simon doing everything and anything he can to beat me.

"He's tried to beat me for three years in the UK, and hasn't even come close. His ego must be so bruised. America is gonna love this."

With that smile, you already won us over sweetheart.

Simon added that the reason he was keen on having her join the show is because “this girl can spot talent."

Although the fourth member of the judging panel is yet to be confirmed, there are rumors that it may be Paula Abdul. So basically it'll be Simon's new version of Idol-- American Idol 2.0.
