Nicole Scherzinger is Always Simon’s First Choice

Nicole Sherzinger is always the first choice of Simon Cowell as judge of the US version of X Factor.

Nicole replaced the British judge Cheryl Cole, after she was suddenly dropped.

Cheryl was allegedly used only to publicize the show, X Factor.

Her British accent was not thought to be partly the reason for her leaving the show because it did not matter to the American audience but was only a cover up excuse.
