Cheryl Cole is confirmed for US X Factor

Cheryl Cole has been confirmed as a judge in the American version of X Factor. The move sees her poised for a Hollywood career.

An insider told the Daily Mail: “You know, it’s a very exciting prospect for everyone involved to have Cheryl on board.”

Simon Cowell is thought to be focusing his energies on X Factor USA after quitting American Idol.

Huge stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, Shania Twain and Sir Elton John are also said to be in the frame.

Since her split from Ashley Cole, Cheryl has spent a lot of her time in America getting friendly with Will.i.am and cosying up to Derek Hough.

Simon Cowell seems intent on moving all his friends to America. He helped launch Piers Morgan on the public there and Sharon Osbourne had a role on America’s Got talent.
