by at . Comments

L.A. Reid was the first judge confirmed for the U.S. version of X Factor this year. Now HE confirms that long-rumored judge Cheryl Cole will be there with him.

The top music producer is also confident that between himself, Cheryl and creator Simon Cowell, the show will do just fine against its reality TV competition.

“We’re gonna compete against American Idol just fine. I’m confident. But along with Simon Cowell and Cheryl, I don’t know who the other judge is,” he said.

Who will fill out the panel with Cheryl and L.A.?

Others rumored to be joining the U.S. version of the show:

Which of those ladies would you like to see as a judge on the show? Or is there another celebrity you think would be a better fit for Simon's project?

    Wow love Cheryl Cole. that is awesome news. love her song Fight For This Love


    Top music producer L.A. is not! he was fired.


    Monkey man L.A. Reid doesn't have the intelligence to select real talent.


    Def Jam finally got rid of that fool L.A. Reid. He has ruined a lot of careers for PERSONAL reasons. He has no business sense whatsoever.


    Wow! So excited about Cheryl if that's true! Along with those three I think Nicole would be a great fit. She does a great job on The Sing Off and, like Cheryl, came into the business after being on a reality show. But to be honest I wouldn't be against either Minaj or Simpson.
