‘X Factor’ Wants Cheryl Cole Back?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, FOX, Gossip, Rumors,

Cheryl ColeCheryl Cole could be offered a huge deal to return to The X Factor.

The 29-year-old pop star was sacked during the show's first series in 2011 before suing Simon Cowell's talent show for $2.3 million, but it's now being reported she could be offered a big contract to tempt a return for the former judge.

"This is a massive move from Simon. He's going right out there and saying that he made a mistake in sacking her. After she was shunted off the show, TV critics in the US said in reviews that she was the best thing about the program - and it seems for once that Simon was wrong. Over the past two seasons, the X Factor hasn't performed as Simon would have wanted - now it looks like Cheryl will be the savior," a source said.

The insider speculates the Girls Aloud singer might not accept the deal after the added "humiliation" of being replaced by Nicole Scherzinger on the UK version of the show.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, FOX, Gossip, Rumors,

Cheryl ColeCheryl Cole is suing The X Factor for $2.3 million after being dropped by the show.

The "Promise This" hitmaker was axed from music mogul Simon Cowell's talent show just days into the first auditions last year and though she was paid her salary for the entire season, but Cheryl, 29, is claiming they still owe her money.

TMZ reports that Cheryl says she signed a "Pay or Play" contract with production company Blue Orbit, who runs the show, in April 2011 and was assured that she would receive $2 million for the second season of the show - even if she wasn't to appear on the judging panel again. Cheryl also states in her 11-page lawsuit that she is owed further expenses which she was promised, such as a $100,000 wardrobe allowance, a stylist at $25,000 and $15,000-per-month for every hotel she stayed at in Los Angeles, California, during the filming of the show.

Jane Lynch - who plays coach Sue Sylvester in the musical TV show - has confirmed talks have been on-going for the 29-year-old star to take part in the show, but it has now been revealed she will be definitely be given a cameo role: "There's been talk on set of Cheryl appearing for a year or so, but it's set to happen now. Matthew Morrison has spoken very highly of her [after she appeared in his film What To Expect When You're Expecting] and the younger guys on set are keen to have her on, for obvious reasons. Matthew's chatted to her and she seems keen. Cheryl's the perfect Glee fit, she can sing, she can dance and she looks good. It would be cool if she played herself."

Jane also joked her alter-ego Sue would not take any messing around from the "Call My Name" hitmaker and would be harsher on her than Simon Cowell - who famously sacked her after she worked on four auditions on the US version of The X Factor.
