Fresh off her recent win from ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger might be moving on to another reality show, this time in the role of judge. Simon Cowell has offered Nicole Scherzinger a gig as a guest judge on Britain’s X Factor, and rumor has it, if she does well, she could become a permanent fixture on the judging panel of the American version. Keep reading for more details on Nicole Scherzinger’s audition…

Nicole Scherzinger will be stepping in as a guest judge on Britain’s reality competition, X Factor, next week, filling in for pregnant judge Danii Minogue during one of the show’s audition episodes. According to a source, if the recently crowned Dancing With the Stars winner does well in her role as judge, she could become one permanently. Simon Cowell, who is bringing X Factor to American audiences in September of 2011, reportedly has hopes of offering a job to Nicole Scherzinger.

Simon Cowell will be heading up the judging panel on the American version of X Factor when it hits U.S. airwaves in September of next year. He has yet to hire the other judges, but a source says Simon Cowell ”is desperate to get [Nicole Scherzinger] on board . Not only does she know her stuff, music wise, but will be a great lure for the show.”

It seems as though Nicole Scherzinger would be happy to take the gig, if offered to her. She recently said it’s her dream to ”inspire and help those that so want to have a musical career.”

A source close to the show says that Nicole Scherzinger is certainly the frontrunner for the position. ”It will be silly if Simon fails to seal the deal before Nicole leaves the set after the stint,” the insider says.
