Scherzinger who had served as guest judge several times on the British version is no longer attached as host but will sit among Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul instead.

Cheryl Cole may be reported trying to get her U.S. working visa but she's not getting "The X Factor (US)" gig anyway. In an official announcement, FOX, Freemantle and Syco TV which produce the talent show said that Cole is replaced by Nicole Scherzinger in the judging panel.

"Nicole will join Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul on their search across America to find the next global superstar or group to win the life-changing $5 million dollar recording deal," the press release said. The initial plan was to have Scherzinger as the co-host of Steve Jones but now the British presenter may have to carry the duty alone.

In the past few weeks, Cole's participation in the new show has been making the news. She was let go from "The X Factor (US) last week and reported not coming back for the British version either. Then on last Friday, June 3, she was allegedly asked to return to the U.S. version.

Many thought that her exit from the U.S. version is prompted by her $1.5 million demand for fee but some believed that it was lack of chemistry, particularly with Abdul, which became the determining point. Cowell reportedly was the one who came with the final decision to replace her.
