The news wires are going wild with the report that “X Factor” judge Cheryl Cole has been sacked from the US show. According to reports, Cheryl was let go because the producers felt that her UK accent would be too hard for the US contestants to understand. Word is that Cheryl is being replaced by Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger.
Cheryl, who worked on UK version of the show, was led to the US by producer Simon Cowell who felt that she would be an asset to the US show. Within weeks after accepting the job, Cheryl moved to the US. Simon Cowell was not available to confirm or deny Cheryl’s release from the show. What we do know is there are quite a few rumors out there one of which is the fact that Cheryl left on her own because she was homesick. There was also another rumor that Cheryl was fired because she did not have a good relationship with fellow judge Paula Abdul.
