There has been much speculation over recent weeks but it now seems certain that the former Pussycat Dolls singer, Nicole Scherzinger will host the X Factor USA show. The decision seems to be have been taken after program creator, Simon Cowell, admitted that she was his preferred choice for the top job. However, Nicole will also have a male co-host, and the rumors suggest that he will be either Enrique Iglesias or Steve Jones.
The thing now, according to Cowell, is to find a man with whom Nicole has some on-screen chemistry. He admits he “adores” Nicole and thought she was fantastic as a guest judge on the UK “X Factor”.
“She’s gorgeous and ruthlessly ambitious and doesn’t arrive with a massive entourage. Everyone adores her,” Simon said. But he disclosed that he wants two hosts for the show and that it should be a man. L.A Reid, the only judge to be confirmed to date will have a say in choosing the presenter and the other judges.
Cheryl Cole will have to wait a little longer to discover if she has successfully made it on to the US judging panel, as Simon said that it would be “about a week, maybe two weeks at the most” when a final decision would be made of judges. It is an important decision to make, with no shortage in the talent pool.
So what do you think to the decision to make Nicole Scherzinger the host of the X Factor USA? Who would you like to see on stage alongside her?
