Cheryl, who it seems may not have secured her dream job as a judge on the American version of the show is said to be devastated over the news that producers of the show would rather choose an American celebrity over her and although Simon Cowell is still trying to convince bosses Cole now has another contender to add to the long list of names being mentioned… Christina Aguilera.
An insider has revealed that although Rihanna and Katy have been named as contenders for the role neither have the time to commit to the show. Christina Aguilera on the other hand has reportedly been in long talks with show bosses and seems very interested.
A source said: “Although Simon is desperate for Cheryl to join him on the judging panel, bosses just aren’t convinced. Both Rihanna and Katy Perry have been mentioned as possible candidates but neither would be able to take time out of their busy work schedule to be judges.
“Christina is the one all bosses are agreed on. She has it all; looks, talent and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind. She is a massive star globally and her voice is recognized as one of the best of all time so there really isn’t any competition especially where Cheryl is concerned.”
Christina performed on the UK version of the talent show back in December 2010.
