Cheryl Cole OUT As British 'X-Factor' Judge Too

5/30/2011 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cheryl Cole was a judge on two different versions of "The X-Factor." What a difference a week makes!

The judges for this season of the popular British show were announced today and Cole's name was off the list. This year's judges panel is made up of music mogul Louis Walsh, Take That's Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland from Destiny's Child and Tulisa Contostavlos of N-Dubz.

As TMZ first reported, Cole was supposed to be on the U.S. version of the show, but was given the boot because producers thought her accent was too thick for American audiences.

Guess the Brit's don't have any issue with Rowland's thick accent.

@Dragon Tattoo Take That is a UK pop group and Gary was part of it. Its the boy band Robbie Williams was part of if you know who that is.. if not then youtube him... come undone is pretty cool. The rest of his songs never make it here by him really. They end up being covered by girls here.

"The singer Cheryl Tweedy of Girls Aloud was yesterday cleared of a racially aggravated assault on a nightclub toilet attendant, after a court heard the racism allegation only emerged after the Sunday Mirror became involved in the story.

But Tweedy,' 20, was convicted of assaulting Sophie Amogbokpa, 39, and ordered to pay a £3,000 fine and to do 120 hours of community service. "

Yeah, she better stay in the UK, we don't care much for racist rants, just ask Mel. She would've been convicted of hate crime in the US for sure if she pulled that crap here. Moments like these makes me glad I live here

she was never going to be a judge on UK x factor this year anyway so don't try and make it look like she was dropped when simon was so desperate to have her back on uk x factor he offered her £2.5 million to come back. simon cowell looks a joke in the whole situation UK x factor will flop this year and I hope us x factor will too.

XFactor is not only judging.. Its mentoring and they have to spend month with their participants... Cheryl was not going back to UK XFactor, just like Simon is not going back either.. So dont even try to use that against her ok... And if the only argument is her problem with bathroom lady.. Come on that happened more that 7 years ago. Its just Rubbish to bring that out over and over again. Why dont you talk about her charity work, her foundation to help people. her climb to Kilimanjaro to get money for malaria... Do research.. She is a great girl.. UK Tabloids are garbage

Well at least the new girls can actually sing. Unlike Tweedy who couldn't sing a note to save her life.

The way the show first used her for publicity then publicly humiliated her by dumping her...cruel. I will watch The Voice instead.
Notice since Cowell became engaged he has had bad luck?
