Cheryl Cole and Nicole Scherzinger to judge American X Factor

“At the moment you are going to see me doing one show next year – and not one in England. I have a contract for this year and that is it,” Simon told The Sun.

“I am going to sit it out for a few more weeks before I make a final decision. And it has to be fun. The minute it stops being fun, bye bye.”

Meanwhile, X Factor will debut on Fox in early 2011 and The New York Post has announced that Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole will join the judge panel of the 2011 US singing competition.

While everyone watches – for now – on the American Idol, with Simon Cowell leading next year’s Fox show, we’re pretty sure that X factor will draw everyone’s attention.

Jennifer Lopez won’t judge on the American Idol because “Her demands got out of hand”

“Her demands got out of hand,” a source said. “Fox had just had enough.” Sources also said that J. Lo. was not on the top of the list of possibly judges.

“J.Lo was definitely not the first choice,” a source told the PopEater website. “In fact, she wasn’t even the second or third choice. “It became clear that neither Elton nor Barry was ready to stop doing what they did best, writing and performing.

“Plus, they are international legends. They certainly don’t want their legacy to be [as] the guy that replaced Simon Cowell on Idol. On the other side, rumors say that Jessica Simpson was on the point to sign a deal for the show.

“You won’t find many folks that like Jessica’s movies or music, but who doesn’t love watching Jessica on TV,” a source said at the time. “She would be the perfect person to replace the void that Paula Abdul left. Jess is funny, caring and a total ditz. Just what the show needs to make America start caring again.

“[But] Benny dazzled the Idol producers in his pitch of J.Lo, and how the power of his client could put Idol back on top. “This was literally music to Idol’s ears after seeing their show drop over 20 percent in the ratings in just one year.

“All of this has left Jessica heartbroken, she has known for some time that she needs a Benny Medina-type manager to secure her the big opportunities when they come along, but how do you fire your own dad?”

Chris Isaak to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol?

The rumors are fueled by the fact that he has met twice with those of Fox.

Chris Isaak, along with music, has appeared over the years in numerous television series such as “Eastwick”, “Cold Case”, “Smallville” and in his own television show, “Chris Isaak Show”. Another singer, Harry Connick Jr., was also considered.

Even rocker Bret Michaels would like the role of judge for “American Idol”, even making lobby last week in an interview for Headline News (“I would love to do it, I would really bring it to the table”, Michaels told Joy Behar). Some sources, however, say that Michaels doesn’t have any chances in the race.

In addition, Donald Trump lobbied to replace Simon Cowell, despite his long association with NBC as a producer and judge of “The Apprentice”.

While Fox insisted that no decision is imminent, network entertainment president Peter Rice said that until the beginning of September, the new judge will join the Caravan.

They want the “American Idol” judge to be similar to “X Factor” Simon Cowell. In many ways, Fox tries to realize who is the right “piece”, a delicate process, considering the long-term tension between Cowell and the executive producer of “American Idol, Simon Fuller.

Will Simon Cowell marry Mezhgan Hussainy?

In addition, the judge of the “X Factor”, which until now has kept the relationship secret, believes that he met half and even thinks to start a family.

“I’m conquered by Mezhgan. I think she is the one. She’s very special. I think I need small Simons around, “said the star in his colleague’s show, Piers Morgan.

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.”

Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul will be judging together again?

Moreover, Cowell seems to had had some serious discussions with Paula and it’s possible to see them judging together again.
“I’ve gone on record, I adore Paula. Whatever happens, I will be working with her in some capacity because I miss her. You’re just going to have to watch this space”, said Simon Cowell to reporters.

The public contradicts last week rumors regarding Danyl Johnson

The rumors that were placing Danyl Jhonson on top as the sure winner of X Factor were denied by the public vote. Although he had a  remarcable evolution, Danyl Jhonson came out of the race for the final and surprised every viewer and disapointed the show producer  Simon Cowell. Danyl Jhonson was a very controversial character and had a lot of minuses during this season, from the big havoc in the  music subject of the Jedward brothers to the elimination of Danyl Jhonson. Danyl’s style is unique, not neccesary a trend setter but  a real mark and with great improvisation skills.

This week is the grand final and I don’t want to give any prognosis, not personal, not of any unofficial sources because the show’s  result is totally unpredictable.
