Washington: Simon Cowell has revealed that Nicole Scherzinger would have “killed” him if he hadn’t chosen her to replace Cheryl Cole on US ‘X Factor’.
The former pussycat doll has taken over from the ousted British star on the panel of Simon’s pop star search show, and the music mogul revealed Nicole was his first choice because he was worried about her reaction if she wasn’t picked.
"What else are we gonna do? She would’ve killed me if I’d a chosen anyone else. I literally would have been killed,” Contactmusic quoted Cowell as telling Access Hollywood.
