"These two are going to be great together," series creator Simon Cowell said of the choices. "I have always wanted Steve to work with us; I think he is a real star. Nicole is fantastic. I loved working with her on the U.K. X Factor last year. She is gorgeous and super-talented."

Scherzinger has been rumored as a host for weeks, while Jones' selection comes as a bit of a surprise. Corbin Bleu had been considered the favorite to appear alongside the former Pussycat Doll.

The X-Factor kicked off auditions this weekend and will air on Fox in September.
