Could singer Cheryl Cole be heading back to The X Factor USA?. From all reports it seems that Cheryl is scheduled to appear on the show. This comes on the heels of Simon Cowell firing most of his staff including former judges Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul and and host Steve Jones. Now it is being reported that Katy Perry and Mariah Carey would be joining Cheryl on the celebrity judging line-up.
As most would remember Simon expressed regret when Cheryl was fired mere weeks after she was hired for the judging gig. It is also being reported that rapper Nicki Minaj may be in the running for the judging role as well. As for the host of the show, reports say that The X Factor UK’s Dermot O’Leary may be Steve Jones’ replacement. Meanwhile producer LA Reid would definitely be on board as a judge on the show next season.
