Singer Cheryl Cole has reportedly joined the judges’ panel on Fox’s upcoming reality-competition series ‘The X Factor,’ premiering this fall.

So says fellow judge L.A. Reid, anyway, who during a recent interview revealed, “WeÕre gonna compete against American Idol just fine. IÕm very confident. But along with Simon Cowell and Cheryl, I donÕt know who the other judge is.Ó

According to, Cole is still in talks with the network and no official word has been made. (Still, given that the news came from L.A. Reid’s lips, it’s probably true.)

This weekend we will be sending one lucky contestant to Chicago for an “X Factor” audition.  Courtland Center at noon is the site of the qualifying auditions. Meanwhile the “X Factor” is hard at work setting the panel of judges.
If confirmed, Cole will be stepping into some very familiar territory; she’s been a judge on the original ‘X Factor’ for the past three seasons.

Music fans may also know Cole as a member of the girl group Girls Aloud.

Check out Cheryl Cole in action on ‘The X Factor.’
