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.
