Although no official announcement has been made on her 3million pounds judging deal, Rice said the singer’s "wonderful" chemistry with Simon Cowell will help ‘The X Factor USA’ beat ‘American Idol’.

"If Cheryl was to be on the show, she`s proved that she`s a terrific judge. She has wonderful chemistry with Simon," the Sun quoted him as saying.

Addressing at a TV critics` convention in California, Rice said the final judges` line-up is still being decided.
