After several months of speculation, it has been announced that British sensation Cheryl Cole will be heading over the pond to judge the US version of The X-Factor.

The 27-year-old beauty, who has judged the UK version of the show as well, was confirmed to be at the judge's table with Simon Cowell and legendary music producer LA Reid by FOX.

The network released a statement saying:

British pop superstar Cheryl Cole will join Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Simon Cowell as a judge on THE X FACTOR, the highly anticipated singing competition series debuting this fall on FOX. Cole, who has sat alongside Cowell as a judge on the U.K. version of “The X Factor” for three years, is a multi-platinum selling solo artist and a member of Girls Aloud, one of the U.K.’s most successful female vocal groups of all time. Cole will join Cowell, Reid and an additional judge (to be announced) as they travel to THE X FACTOR audition cities searching for the next global superstar or breakout music group.
There is still much speculation as to the fourth judge's seat, with some saying Simon's American Idol cohort Paula Abdul will nab the coveted position.

Also, insiders are saying that former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and High School Musical star Corbin Bleu are in talks to co-host the FOX singing competition show, which will debut this fall.

    Simon Cowell deliberately chose celebrities who are less famous than him in America to join his panel so that he would be the undisputed star of the show.
 I guess this means we should expect one or two of the following judges from the UK X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent to join the USA X Factor’s judging panel as well:
Dannii Minogue, Louis Walsh, Amanda Holden, Michael Mcintyre
