News has surfaced that NICOLE SCHERZINGER is set to HOST The X-Factor US. Former Pussycat Doll LEAD Singer is set to HOST “The X-Factor US”. I repeat HOST! Hosting is what Dermot and Ryan Seacrest do on the shows like X-Factor UK and American Idol. Check out the news from Rap-Up :

Nicole Scherzinger has a new gig. After months of speculation, the former Pussycat Doll has been announced as one of the hosts for the U.S. edition of Simon Cowell’s “X Factor.”

The 32-year-old singer will divide her time between music andhosting the singing competition, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Cowell’s reality show is set to air in September onFox, but Scherzinger will be present for the auditions when they kick off Sunday in Los Angeles.

The multi-platinum artist recently released her solo debut Killer Love in the U.K. and is prepping the U.S. release for this summer, which will include the first single “Right There” featuring 50 Cent.

Joining Scherzinger as co-host is Steve Jones, a U.K.television personality who’s hosted British programs including the “T4 Music” series and BBC One’s quiz show “As Seen on TV.”

Former Island Def Jam CEO Antonio “L.A” Reid and British songstress Cheryl Cole will join Cowell on the judges’ panel, with a fourth to be announced soon.

SORRY… BUT WHAT THE F**K is Simon playing at!? Nicole Scherzinger to HOST but Cheryl Cole must sit down and JUDGE!? Nicole had a BIGGER impact on The X-Factor UK when she had to fill in for Cheryl and Dannii. Now Simon has decided to make her HOST! I can’t believe it! I’m actually angry at this. I can’t believe Nicole actually agreed to it! That’s like telling Beyonce to Host American Idol and have Ke$ha Judge! How you gonna switch up the roles like THAT!? Nicole is a BETTER singer than Cheryl! Man… I’m FINISHED. Good luck with The X-Factor US, already I’m not feeling the show!
