Cheryl Cole Is Coming To America

Eva Mendes

Well…it’s official.

After what seemed like months of rumors, Cheryl Cole has reportedly signed a contract worth $4.6 million dollars to be a judge on Simon Cowell’s U.S. version of the X Factor.

The pop star, who is also set to release her second solo album next year, has been trying desperately to make her mark in Hollywood.

A source close to Cole admits “it’s the next part of her big plan, she’s an incredibly hard worker and she will definitely get a boost by appearing on the X Factor, which is set to be a sure-fire hit.”

With Simon Cowell behind it…we don’t doubt it’s going to be anything but.
