Report: Simon Cowell & Nicole Scherzinger To Revive ‘X Factor USA’


Poor music may have stopped her from becoming the international Pop sensation her talent should have made her, but it would seem Nicole Scherzinger’s run as a successful TV personality is anything but over.

For, she may set to join Simon Cowell to revive ‘X Factor USA’, re-teaming with the mogul to put the series back on US screens after it was axed in February.

Full story below…

TV Line reports:

The network reportedly is in talks with Simon Cowell to bring The X Factor, which was cancelled in February after three seasons, back for Season 4.

Cowell, who created the singing competition and is now a judge on its British version, would leave that post in order to return to the United States, the British publication Mirror reports.

Representatives from the network have not commented on the report. X Factor‘s Season 3 finale was watched by only 6.2 million people — and scored a 1.7 demo rating — marking year-to-year declines of 36 and 45 percent.

The series’ American iteration made several changes during its run, including dropping mentors Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones after the first season and adding Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to the mix in Season 2.

If Cowell does depart the British X Factor, it will be the second time he’s done so; the first was in 2010, to get Fox’s Factor going.

    NICOLE is the biggest flop in music.

  3. Sherry November 23, 2014

    Enough with these shows! They do more harm than good! I can’t name one X Factor winner.

      Ummm does Fifth Harmony ring a bell??

  4. unnami November 23, 2014

    where you find any word about nicole scherzinger in this statement?

    you lies

  5. Molly November 23, 2014

    Its pretty pointless but ok.

  6. Beyhive November 23, 2014

    Nicole name wasn’t even in this smh. Nobody cares about Her or Her music. I really did like the last season on the show only because Kelly Rowland was on it , Kelly brought something new and different to the show. So if it does come back Kelly needs to come back as well

  7. God November 23, 2014

    She can’t even birth a solo career, this won’t work.

  8. Dark Horse November 23, 2014

    Lmao no ones checking for Nicole its pretty clear at this point. She’s a bigger flop than Ashanti & Brandy.

  9. LB November 23, 2014

    Has Simon considered maybe he’s the problem? I mean bringing Tweedy back was a mistake and judging from those p*** poor album sales, nobody is checking for that one octave ho

    • Mimi Carey November 23, 2014

      But Nicole has more talent than Rihanna

      • LB November 23, 2014

        And they both have more of a voice than Mariah

      • Mimi Carey November 23, 2014

        Mariahs a vocal legend. Rihanna can’t see Mariah on her worse day .

      • LB November 23, 2014

        And Mariah can’t outsing Rihanna on her (Mariah’s) best day.

  10. good job November 23, 2014

    That show was so awful. It was so fake and the talent was just bad. Not impressive. Nicole was the WORST judge of them all. Kelly was a very good judge.

    I doubt this show is coming back to the US unless the found a new TV network. believe the Daily Mirror is lying.

  11. Mimi Carey November 23, 2014

    I love x factor omg Nicole is everything she slays r****, beyfraud and flopga

  12. Adele stan November 23, 2014

    The show is a FLOP and will remain a FLOP. It will be cancelled all over again especially with Nicole Shitzinger judging.

  13. yasssssssssss B**** November 23, 2014

    i wouldn’t mind seeing it brung back,it was entertaining.

  14. old school November 23, 2014

    I feel like these competition shows are more about the judges and other artists who need to perform and promote their songs. I feel like it’s not about the ones who are competing. Just my opinion. But I guess if they want to bring it back, bring it back!

  15. Leon vs. Lebo November 23, 2014

    Bring back Ms. kelly to judge, she brought life to the panel. Her personality and style was good for the show..

  16. feefee November 23, 2014

    I think it can be revived. Simon screwed himself over with the show. The first with Paula and Nicole were good and had 12 million viewers, I even liked Kelly as a judge too. I like having Mario as a host. He just have to keep to one concept and stop switching up judges and just stick one thing.

  17. Carlitos November 23, 2014

    I loved it with Nicole and Paula. I really think they should ask Toni Braxton to become a judge! She’s an amazing and talented singer, actor, reality personality, and she still has a pretty decent size fan base.

  18. musicMatters101 November 23, 2014

    I highly doubt they would bring it back so soon. It was terribly produced way to grand and over the top.

    The only reason I could see them bring it back (likely to ABC since all their music shows fail) would be if Simon was trying to get Lady Gaga in attempt to revive her career. Ppl seem to have liked Kelly, I didn’t watch that season, but I do like her.

  19. taqueria arandas November 23, 2014

    If they had a better Pop presence last time, Demi couldnt get enough new eyes on the show in the Pop Princess category… I think Kelly was phenominal and if she got Boys or groups she wouldve been better off… Paulina Rubio was so unnecessary… I would like Simon, Kelly, (Sharika/Paula… Cyndi Lauper, Madonna), but it would take a Justin Timberlake or Diddy

  20. Beysus November 23, 2014

    Hell to the no!!! Put Nicole on the UK one!!!!

  21. Timago November 23, 2014

    Flopcole Flopzinger?

    Smelly Flopland?

    Flop much?

  22. Musika November 24, 2014

    Get Vanessa Williams and Will Smith to judge!

    • MUSICHEAD November 26, 2014

      Vanessa Williams would be good! So would Toni Braxton.
