Cowell made clear that if he wants Cole on  the X Factor he will offer her the job, even if he has to use an American voiceover artist to talk over the British star, so she's understood by the US viewers.

Several celebrities are being considered for the job at the moment, including Fergie and Nicole Scherzinger

Cowell's also announced that Mariah Carey is confirmed to be involved in the live shows, after she gives birth to her twins.
