It is finally confirmed, although not officially, that Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole would be the judges of American "The X Factor". Simon Cowell quit "American Idol" earlier this year to develop the new version of singing competition show and he reportedly had wanted Scherzinger and Cole from the beginning to accompany him on the judging table.

Now Piers Morgan who judges "Britain's Got Talent" with Cowell has let slip of the final decision, saying "He'll love a couple of feisty brunettes fighting over him." However, Deadline's source said it is too early to confirm the casting because Cole is not mentioned in the talks and Scherzinger has only impressed the production company so far. "There's been lots of interest from lots of people," the source said.

Cole in particular has a lot of experience in the area for she is judge to the U.K. version. Scherzinger in the meantime has subbed for Cole when she was struck with malaria last month. The Pussycat Doll made herself notable when standing up against Cowell, but not offending him. "Simon's great," she said. "Even though he's such a phenomenon, he called me personally - that's the sort of guy he is. He was like: 'If we ever need to bring you back for anything I'll send my jet'. He is a nice guy at heart."

Revealing her thought of Cole being made a judge on the American version, Scherzinger shared to Daily Star, "I know she's very popular in the UK and Simon really values her. If Simon chooses to bring Cheryl to the US as a judge I'm sure she and her music will do really well there." Cole is indeed signed to's record label and is on the verge to launch her career Stateside.

"If Cheryl gets a judge's spot on US X Factor she will become known in every household in the States. I'm sure it'll be the No 1 show on TV, so if she's part of that she can go really far," Scherzinger continued without talking about herself.

I hope that Nicole Scherzinger gets the Judges role in the USA. Cheryl Cole is boring and talentless. Cheryl should go back to Girls Aloud which was her best work.
