As we reported last week, Cole was replaced by Nicole Sherzinger on the judging panel touting no real apparent reason… well, they said that it was because those auditioning couldn’t understand her accent, however many speculated that she did not get along with fellow judge Paula Abdul. Now, Simon Cowell has supposedly asked her back to the show. Sources close to Simon claim that Cowell said “We have offered Cheryl a second chance and she might still come back to US X Factor. Fox have been re-examining the situation and have had a change of heart. After the debacle with the UK judging panel we have started negotiating with Cheryl’s camp and the ball is now in her court.”
Cheryl has not commented as to whether she will take Simon up on his offer and return to the show, but FOX is planning on airing the footage with her as judge regardless. I guess we wait and see!
