Simon Cowell

Hot off the heals of the annoucement that Cheryl Cole will be one of the hosts of the American X Factor, comes word that Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger, and British TV host Steve Jones will front the new series debuting this fall on FOX.

Nicole started her career on a talent competition show called Popstars (the WB) where she rose to fame as the leader of Eden’s Crush an all-girl group formed on the show. She then went on to become a member of the Pussycat Dolls and was a judge on NBC’s The Sing Off.

Steve Jones is a televison host from across the pond who has fronted several well known British productions. Let’s Dance for Comic Relief, As Seen on TV and When Women Rule the World are just some of his TV credits.

They join Cheryl Cole, LA Reid and of course Simon Cowell to round out the on-air talent for the show which is to debut in September 2011.

Former executive at Island Def Jam records, LA Reid has been officially tapped as the first judge on the highly anticipated American version of X-Factor.

Reid is well established in the music world backing such talent as P!nk, Justin Beiber, TLC and Mariah Carey. We also hear that he may join another record company which will also be the official record company of the show.

Simon has been very tight lipped on who he wants on the show but rumors are flying that the likes of Enrique Iglesias could host and Taylor Momsen (Gossip Girl, the Pretty Reckless) could judge.

What do you think of these names? Let us know!
