Honestly Nicole's solo career is a flop, Cheryl eserves this break and it would be mad to take it away from her, she's amazing...

Cheryl is not very well known over here but she has 68% of the vote. That says how much people like Nicole. They should just keep Cheryl she is somthing a bit different. Bring cheryl back fox.

I believe Cheryl has been dropped not because of her accent which has already been screen tested but because when the mainstream media disect her past/personnel life they will find a messy marriage and more distresful for cheryl they will look into the incident in the nightclub toilet with the attendent that she was found guilty in court off. There was also unproven roumers of her spouting racial abuse at the attendent. With the U.S media you know they disect you life history they would have been all over this episode!

Cheryl got it easy on the UK X FActor. She always got the best group - she always got the boys or girls which are the easiest. She had the most talented contestant ever last year and failed to get her to win. She has never heard of an Elton John song another contestant had sang.

There are different English accents - Cheryls is one that is hard to understand. I struggle listening to her and I'm scottish.

There was no reason for Cheryl to be chosen over Nicole. Cheryl is good for the UK version - in popular UK girl band, young pretty, went through the process herself. these are all things that nicole is in the US. When you're the "performer" on the judges panel, people need to know who you are. The US audience doesn't. PLus Nicole actually gave them constructive criticism and made witty comments, compared to Cheryls "I didn't get it" - bad and "you're right up my street" - good.

Nicole was obviously the safety net that FOX insisted on. If Cheryl bombs, they can bring in Nicole from the hosting to the judging. Simon himself said that he did not believe that two hosts work on these shows - American Idol, UK X Factor. There were rumours that FOX insisted on a get-out clause that they could dump cheryl in the first year of contract. Guess they needed to exert that.

hmm    

I have no idea who either of these two are, but am I the only one who thinks both of them have a load of makeup on. I'm trying to imagine what they look like without it and then I'll vote.
