Cheryl Cole fighting with malaria while auditioning the X Factor

Therefore, some photos of her appeared online, showing a really tired and ill Cheryl Cole at the show’s auditions. The singer felt the need to rest her head on her arms before she went on the Green Room.

She lay a while on a couch trying to rest even if she had temperature, headaches and shivers because she had malaria. All these happened just before she had a photoshoot where she collapsed and then diagnosed with malaria.

Moreover, the singer said to her judge colleagues: ‘I don’t feel well at all. I am definitely coming down with something.’ Cowell asks her ‘Are you ill?’ Cheryl decided to spoke this week for the first time about her battle with the tropical disease.

Ellen DeGeneres says Cowell is not as she believed to be

Lately, Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi (KEHR’-uh dee-oh-GWAR’-dee) and many other guest judges kicked off the ninth season of the Fox singing competition in January.

Moreover, Ellen DeGeneres , the newest judge, begins her stint Tuesday night.

It seems that Ellen describes Cowell in a video posted on the show’s web site as “actually meaner than I thought. It’s hard to listen to him tell people things and for me not to go, `You poor thing!'”

The show host, DeGeneres said that no one has given her advice on judging :”they’re just letting me do what I want to do.”

Is American Idol history?

Looking back into the past we saw that American Idol was unstoppable in ratings, thing that is not available for present time.
Taking into consideration that Paula Abdul is gone from the show and that Cowell might be the next one, the ratings have declined. Moreover, many fans did not appreciate the coming on the show of the fourth judge, Kara DioGuardi and also by the announcement that Ellen DeGeneres will take Abdula’s place. There is one question to answer : will American Idol be history?

According to TV critic Maureen Ryan : “Every show has a life cycle. “I think [‘Idol’] has reached that point in its maturity where it’s not necessarily guaranteed to end up on the top of the ratings heap every single night, every single week, every single year. I think it will certainly be high up there, but I don’t think it will be as huge a phenomenon as it has been.”
Consequently, the only thing that remains is to watch a new season of American Idol and to decide for ourselves if the show will still have success with the new changes.
