So, It Looks Like Cheryl Won’t Be On ‘The X Factor UK’ After All
There have been rumors circulating for months that Cheryl was going to replace Nicole Scherzinger as a judge on The X Factor UK. Dermot O’Leary all but said she was and Nicole spoke about her uncertainty whether she was going to be asked back. Well, it looks like Cheryl decided to be a judge on a new dancing show called The Greatest Dancer instead.
The show will also star Matthew Morrison from Glee and Oti Mabuse from Strictly Come Dancing. It will be hosted by BGT‘s own Alesha. I’m not sure why she decided to not go The X Factor route. Maybe she was just using The X Factor as leverage to get the dancing show or maybe they offered more money. Perhaps the reasons are more personal and she didn’t want to work with her nemesis Louis Walsh. Either way, it looks increasingly more likely that Nicole Scherzinger will return to The X Factor UK.
I have to say I’m happy with this turn of events. Cheryl is fine but I think Nicole brings some much needed energy to the show. You have to balance out Sharon and Simon’s grumpiness with some fun.
