X Factor: Is Cheryl Cole Headed To American Idol?

June 13, 2011 07:00 AM by Lisa Princ

FOX‘s X Factor recently fired Cheryl Cole from the upcoming series, but is it possible she is headed to American Idol? According to insiders, Simon Fuller is trying to launch Cheryl’s career in The States. Keep reading for more details!

X Factor’s loss may very well end being American Idol’s gain! According to insiders close to creator Simon Fuller, he is trying to get Cheryl on his team. Cheryl’s friends are saying that she is “thrilled” and “really excited” by Simon’s plan, which includes an offer to mastermind her solo pop career in The United States. The “Girls Aloud” singer reportedly told her friends that she has found the right man to help get her “own back” and “crack America” – but coming from someone who just claimed that she didn’t care much whether or not she made a name in The States, is this really true?

Insiders close to Simon Fuller say it is also true and sources say “Fuller first contacted Cheryl 10 days ago with an offer to lift her out of her career gloom. The pair have had several subsequent conversations and have agreed to meet in the next few weeks.” The source adds “He has already given her his ideas on how Cheryl’s career in the States can take off. There’s even the chance of a role on the next American Idol.” But if Cheryl is not interested in coming to America, why would she be in talks with Fuller? What do you think? Would Cheryl Cole make a good addition to the American Idol panel?

Stay tuned for more details about the exciting premiere of Simon Cowell’s X Factor, set to debut on Fox this fall!

    While this is an interesting rumor (and I hope it is) I think she still has a better chance to judge Xfactor season 2 (if there is a season 2 to begin with)
