Big X Factor USA News Today!

After months of speculation over which celebrities will bag a job on the judges panel, X Factor USA‘s official website has confirmed that ‘big’ news about the show will be revealed today.

Whilst it is unknown whether the judges or the presenters will be announced, either way it is the first step towards ending the furore surrounding who Fox and Simon Cowell have selected to appear on the hugely anticipated stateside version of the popular reality talent show.

Speaking at the National Television Awards last month, Simon Cowell stated that he would be making an announcement within two weeks, but the music mogul has remained tight-lipped about discussions with the bigwigs at Fox.

On Saturday, The News of The World reported that Cheryl had signed a contract to become a judge worth ten million pounds. An insider had said, “Simon is the boss of this show. He gets what he wants and he wants Cheryl. The money you make on American TV is huge, but there’s also a huge risk. The way American contacts are gives Fox the chance to opt out if viewers don’t take to her. But Simon won’t let that happen.â€?

There are however other stars rumoured to be in the running, including stunning Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger and pop legend George Michael, whilst Dermot O’Leary and Steve Jones are said to have been considered for the presenters job.

The Twitter account for Cowell’s Syco Music confirmed that a “big announcement” will be made at some stage today.
