According to reports, Cheryl is preparing to quit the British version to make her move to Los Angeles permanent.
A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: "I would say it’s a good bet that Cheryl is coming to America. It’s something that Simon and Cheryl have been discussing for months. You know, it’s a very exciting prospect for everyone involved to have Cheryl on board."
Nicole is also rumored to be preparing to sign a huge contract to sit alongside Simon Cowell on the panel, after impressing him during her guest appearance on the UK show – where she stood in for judge Dannii Minogue while she was on maternity leave, and Cheryl while she recovered from malaria.
The New York Post reports: "Sources tell us sultry Scherzinger is a favorite with Cowell after she made a guest appearance as a judge on the hit British version of the show this year."
Cheryl's reportedly been eyeing a move to LA for months now. She wants to relaunch her music career and thinks LA has just what she needs.
The source said: "When Cheryl goes to America she will also launch her music career there too. It’s the next part of her big plan, she’s an incredibly hard worker and she will definitely get a boost by appearing on 'The X Factor', which is set to be a sure-fire hit."
We'll happily welcome Cheryl to the US!
