Official: Cheryl Cole Returns To ‘The X Factor’

Published: Monday 10th Mar 2014 by Sam

It looks like someone has an album to promote.

For, despite vowing never to come back, Cheryl Cole‘s return to The X Factor UK has been confirmed.

Details after the jump…

Creator and judge Simon Cowell ended months of speculation tonight on Twitter, writing…



Inevitably, Cole’s comeback will be billed as a triumphant return “home”, however ploughing through the smoke and mirrors reveals an altogether different story.

Indeed, for us, it’s a narrative defined by the reality that she all but had no choice but to return to the ITV show. After all, her planned American takeover was axed quicker than you could say lip-synch. Remember, she was shown the door on the US version of the show (just two days into auditions). What’s more, her music sales on home soil sans the X Factor machine have been so-so at best.

So what better way to resuscitate her fortunes than the tried and tested seat at the judges panel? It’s a smart move and one that should keep her star burning bright (no matter how artificially) – despite having a voice that’s thinner than A4 paper.

Cue an album campaign with two singles max, one mimed “live” performance, and press propaganda aplenty. She’s back. She’s Cheryl.

    Fix factor, no one cares about a woman with no talent judging talent..

  2. Lovebird March 10, 2014

    Lol, really who cares? And Kelly is still jobless.

    So does this mean that we should be expecting her 3rd studio album? I actually liked seeing her on the X-factor she’s a very pretty lady and she has some form of stardom.

    But she cannot sing.

    I’m not fan of Cheryl’s but the truth is the show needs her just as bad as she needs the show, Nicole & Kellys seasons flopped and her last so so selling album still produced a single that became the fastest selling song of the year? Kelly and Nicole could never 😉 ….

    Whose Kelly?

    Yea, Britney was the Big super star who was paid
    millions of dollars and was suppose to be superior
    to as far as talent , and marketable but it didn’t
    work. Kelly had the whole package. She had talent,
    and the looks and the personality for the show.
    That is why the rating improved substantially.
    I stop watching the UX version when Kelly

    Im only here for Cheryl if Dannii Minogue us back also, that line of Dannii, Louie, Cheryl and Simon was gold and they way Dannii and Cheryl were cool with each other but always trying to out do each other with the outfits (with Dannii always winning( was TV Gold, Cheryl on her own will not cut it, yes she now’s how to pick talent but she is not as entertaining with out the female to female banter which is why she was axed from the USA show, bring back Dannii Minogue and i’m here for this!

    I was really upset when they fired her from US X Factor. I really like her and I felt she had a lot of potential to start a music career here
