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.

Nicole Scherzinger will be seen often on Fox this fall, co-hosting The X-Factor with Steve Jones.

But the beautiful singer took to the stage in a different capacity last night, shaking and grooving for American Idol audiences during a rendition of "Right There." She was eventually joined by 50 Cent.

This fall, male The X-Factor fans may tune in for the voices - but they'll likely stay for the looks.

Of Cheryl Cole and Nicole Scherzinger, that is.

The former, a British pop singer, will sit at the judging panel alongside Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell; while the latter, an American pop singer, will co-host the singing competition with Steve Jones. How will each do? Forget that question and answer this one:

One was a sure thing, the other is a relative unknown in the States.

But both will soon be taking up time on your TV screen, as Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones have been named co-hosts of The X-Factor.

"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.

The judges appear to be in place. But who will be The X-Factor's version of Ryan Seacrest this fall?

Entertainment Weekly reports that two names are close to finalizing deals as the competition's co-hosts: former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherziner.

Bleu made his mark on the Disney Channel, but he's since gone on to anchor In the Heights on Broadway for a run. Scherzinger, meanwhile, is a favorite of producer Simon Cowell, who says he absolutely adores the beauty.

Contracts for both will need to be signed soon, as production is scheduled to begin on May 8.

Nicki Minaj is out. Might Nicole Scherzinger be in?

The hip hop star will not judge The X-Factor, but Simon Cowell himself sounds very close to naming the former Pussycat Doll as the second judge on his upcoming singing competition.

"I want her to do it, but we've got to get the deal done and find someone she has chemistry with," Cowell tells TV Guide. "I absolutely adore her. She was fantastic on the U.K. X Factor and I'm hopeful it will happen."

Cowell says Cheryl Cole is in the mix and also explains his connection to L.A. Reid, who has been confirmed for the panel.

"I met him approximately fifteen years ago when he'd launched Pink for the first time. He put on a show and got every single person in the room to believe this person was a star. The way he presented her with his passion drew me to him and was a big part of why I chose him to be on the show. A "yes" or "no" from L.A. Reid should really mean something to the contestants."

While all the reality show judging controversy over the last few months has been centered around American Idol, let's not forget about the show Simon Cowell left this hit for.

X Factor will debut on Fox in early 2011 and The New York Post has announced a pair of judges on that the British version of this singing competition: Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole.

Scherzinger is the former lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls and last season's Dancing with the Stars champion.; while Cole is a beautiful British singer/model. She's also dating Derek Hough.

Fox is yet to announce a premiere date for X Factor, but it should be interesting to see how it fares compared to Idol. Will you watch both?

During last night's Dancing With the Stars finale, Nicole Scherzinger and her partner, Derek Hough, earned the unanimous praise of all three of the judges.

Pretty much the same as how fans felt about them all season.

“I’m totally emotional,” Hough said after he and Nicole won the prestigious Mirrorball trophy. “Nicole and I burst out into tears backstage after our tango."

"We were so overwhelmed with how happy we were with what was going on tonight. Win, lose, draw we were going to be happy. But to win is phenomenal.”

“I’m kind of speechless right now,” confessed Nicole Scherzinger. "I’m going to go into a room and cry. It’s not about the trophy. It’s beyond the trophy."

Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough kiss the hardware.

"The experience and the challenge and everything you go through - this has been a lot of life-changing experiences in three months. It’s just so intense.”

Meanwhile, there were no hard feelings from talented finalists Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya or Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy - only praise.

“We definitely feel like we haven’t left anything on the table,” Lysacek said. “We all gave it our best shot, but Derek and Nicole were the best from day one."

“I was a mess when I came here,” said Andrews, the victim of a nude peephole video stalking scandal, said, in tears. “He was exactly what I needed.”

Like Lysacek, Andrews was thrilled to compete in the finale, and humbled by the experience. Adds Lysacek, “I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.”

Ten weeks and a dozen and a half routines later, Season 10 of Dancing With the Stars has finally come to an end. The winner of the coveted Mirrorball trophy was unveiled Tuesday, with three contestants remaining entering the night.

  • Would it be Evan Lysacek, limber Olympic figure skating gold medalist, looking to add the famed Mirrorball to burgeoning trophy case?
  • Would it be Nicole Scherzinger, the lovely lead Pussycat Doll and lord of the Dancing With the Stars season from beginning to end?
  • Would it be Erin Andrews, embattled ESPN reporter turned ballroom aficionado, and a woman who everyone has to be rooting for?
