Cheryl Cole Slated For US X Factor In $4.6 Million Deal

It seems there may be more for Cheryl Cole to celebrate when she visits Derek Hough in the upcoming weeks in the US – her new deal as a judge on the US version of The X-Factor.

Only a week after executives from U.S. television network Fox flew in to watch the ITV talent show, the 27-year-old was offered the job. While Simon Cowell has yet to reveal all of the judges on the panel, he said an announcement will be coming in December.

Rumor has it that Nicole Scherzinger will also be part of the new show as well…

Cole is said to also be prepping to launch her music in the states as well, releasing her album Messy Little Raindrops in the upcoming year. I hope they rework that album because it’s not that good to stand on its own here in the States.

Cowell hopes to pummel the newly re-tooled American Idol with X-Factor.

So hopefully Cheryl will be spending more time with Derek and finally admit that they are dating…C’mon!
