I don't know whether former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole's judging skills will get me to actually watch Simon Cowell's new American Idolish show The X Factor, but at least I'll consider it now:
Cheryl Cole has the X factor — so much so that she has signed on as the newest judge of the U.S. version of Simon Cowell's hit reality competition show.
According to 'X Factor' judge L.A. Reid, former Girls Aloud singer Cole will join him and Cowell to weed out hopefuls in search of America's most talented performers.
If you're not familiar with the stellar pop music created by Ms. Cole, consider this your lucky day.
