Los Angeles: Singer Nicole Scherzinger has reportedly replaced Cheryl Cole in the talent show ‘The X-Factor’.
"It`s true. She isn`t on the show anymore. Everyone is gobsmacked. This came out of nowhere. She had already been tested countless times. Simon had nothing to do with it. This is the network`s doing," usmagazine.com quoted a source as saying.
Nicole Scherzinger was previously roped in to co-host the show with Steve Jones.
Other judges on the show are Simon Cowell, LA Reid and Paula Abdul.
