Cheryl confirmed for US X Factor

Star's officially confirmed for judge role

There's been plenty of speculation, but now we can reveal that Cheryl will be one of the judges on US X Factor.

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

Simon Cowell was full of praises for Cole, saying "I'm thrilled for Cheryl. She is massively excited about this show, and has been fantastic to work with. She is also a complete brat! Most importantly, this girl can spot talent."

Cheryl has been a judge on the British version of the X Factor since 2008 and two acts she mentored ended up winning the show, Joe McElderry and Alexandra Burke.

The 27-year-old singer will take her place alongside show boss Simon Cowell and former music executive LA Reid.
