Simon Cowell Promises To Help Cheryl Cole Crack US
SiCo will help Chezza's career even if without the X Factor...
Chezza had been linked to a judging role on the show when it launches in the US on Fox later this year, but recent reports have suggested that the show's producers don't feel her profile is high enough in the States and may instead plump for Katy Perry or Rihanna.
A source told The Sun that:
"Simon Cowell still hasn't confirmed the panel. Cheryl is in a state, it's her ticket out of the UK."
The source went on to confirm that Cheryl's US dreams are far from over however, saying:
"There's still a 50% chance producers of the US X Factor will give her the go-ahead. Either way, Simon has promised to help her launch a career over there."
Last week, reports suggested that Cole could fill the advisory role Sinitta holds in the UK competition.
Even if she doesn't make it onto the judging panel, it has been suggested that Cheryl could still be involved with the US X Factor as a mentor, much like the role Cowell's pal Sinitta plays in the UK version.
