Cheryl Cole's British Accent Got Her Fired? Really?


Does this sound right to you?
Apparently Cheryl Cole just doesn't have the 'X' factor.
Thought the panel of judges and cohosts for Fox's X Factorwas set once Paula Abdul joined the fray? Think again!
In a shocking 11th hour decision that came down Monday, X Factor execs pulled Brit singer Cheryl Cole from the panel and replaced her with Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Problem is, Scherzinger was already tapped to cohost withSteve Jones.
"Everyone is freaking out and it's all a bit of a mess," a source close to Girls Aloud singer Cole, 27, told Us WeeklyWednesday after news of the switch surfaced.
Though Internet reports claim Cole's thick British accent was a possible reason for the switch, a source tells Us show creator Cowell was more concerned with his panel's chemistry.
