Cheryl Cole Out, Nicole Scherzinger in as The X-Factor Judge

by at . Comments

Long before it airs a single episode, there's already been a shake-up on The X-Factor.

Cheryl Cole, the most popular panelist on the British version of Simon Cowell's singing competition, has been replaced as judge by Nicole Scherzinger, who had been slated to host the show with Steve Jones.

Sources say there was a "lack of chemistry" between Cole and Abdul and that producers actually believed the former's English accent would be too heavy for viewers to understand. No word yet on whether or not Jones will now host the show alone.
