Cheryl Cole today received a taste of the sack, only this time it was not that of music mogul Simon Cowell. Who had helped engineer her transition from the girl you’d stay clear of in a night club to the woman successful enough for footballers to want to marry and then cheat on. Cheryl Cole’s American dream ended rather prematurely as TV bosses axed her from the American X-Factor after realizing that her Geordie twang is inaudible to anyone south of Tyne-side, let alone any Americans. Perhaps this is a good thing, as now she may be welcomed back with open arms to the British version of the show. Let’s not forget the prestigious talent she has discovered and nurtured in Britain. Who can forget Alexandra Burke; Britain’s answer to Beyoncé (after a few beers) or Joe McElderry who’s hit single, ‘The Climb’ was followed, almost immediately, by the fall.
Apparently, Nicole Scherzinger is rumored to be taking over the position initially held by Cole. This demonstrates quite a change in strategy for the X-Factor; using the only technically-able singer in, ‘The Pussy Cat Dolls’ to replace the only non-technically able singer in, ‘Girls Aloud’. American fans of the show are surely rejoicing at this change. Not only might they be spared the likes of Cher Lloyd and other similar, instantly dis-likable, so-called prodigies chosen by Cole. But Scherzinger has much sexier friends, in the rest of, ‘The Pussy Cat Dolls’ than Will.I.Am, resulting in the portion of the show in the judges houses being far more watchable – with the TV on mute of course.
Cole is said to be devastated about the whole thing, although I am sure not as devastated as I am, knowing that the British X-Factor won’t include Scherzinger but might include Cole.
