With the final judging line-up for this year’s X Factor still very much up in the air, one name not in the ring is Louis Walsh’s choice, Ni...
Huh? Has Nicole Scherzinger Snubbed An X Factor Comeback?
According to reports the ex-Pussycat Doll has turned down Simon Cowell’s offer to return to the show to replace Cheryl.
Si is said to be keen on getting an X Factor veteran back in the judge’s chair, instead of relying on new blood like last year.
But Nic already has plans, opting for a role in Cats on Broadway instead. She’s obviously not feline the love.
A source told the Daily Star: “Simon wants to know he is in safe hands this year after last year’s disaster. He wants everything to run smoothly. In his eyes that means a tried and tested panel rather than going for a big name who could be a risk.
“He knows that Sharon, Louis and Nicole all work well. They offer the right balance of star quality, fun and personality.
“Simon has really learned from Britain’s Got Talent that if the panel work well then everything else snowballs from there and that’s what he wants to create with this year’s X Factor again.”
