Cheryl Cole 'In A Strop' With Simon Cowell Over US XF?
Reports claim the star is upset that Nicole Scherzinger could be a judge...
However, Simon Cowellis said to be considering Scherzinger as a panelist, with Chezza suggesting that her and Nicole are "too similar" to be judges on the series when it launches Stateside later this year.
SiCo is reportedly planning to dismiss Cheryl's wishes by asking the Katy Perry and Rihanna are also said to be a threat to Cheryl's position on the panel after FOX bosses allegedly claimed that she "wasn't famous enough" to judge the US show.
Meanwhile in other American X Factor news, the Daily Star has reported that Cowell has promised the winner of the programme a $5million recording contract to guarantee that the show is "bigger and better than anything you’ve seen before."
SiCo, who featured in a recent commercial for the US version of The X Factor during the Super Bowl, also claimed that he wants the show to be: "more extreme, more fun, more exciting.”
Speaking about the American XF and his decision to lower the age limit to just 12-years old, Cowell explained: “I’ve never believed there should be a cut-off age for talent and we are going to put our money where our mouths are with the $5m contract."
Auditions for the US X Factor are expected to start next month, with SiCo still yet to confirm the judging line-up.
