[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Simon Cowell[/lastfm]‘s new-to-America talent show, The X Factor, is having auditions at the Dallas Convention Center on TODAY!. If you are over 12 years old and are a singer or in a vocal group, this could be your big break!
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cheryl Cole[/lastfm] was dropped from the judging panel on “X-Factor” largely because producers were concerned her English accent would be too difficult for an American audience to understand. There were other issues too, including the fact that Cheryl and fellow judge [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Paula Abdul[/lastfm] had a “lack of chemistry” and Cheryl was more expendable. Producers now want Cheryl to return to the UK version of the show, but she’s angry over how this situation was handled and may sever ties with the shows entirely. With Cheryl out, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Steve Jones[/lastfm] will be the only host on the show while [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicole Scherzinger[/lastfm] fills the open seat on the judging panel.
