The Sun reports, the Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole will be joining Antonio ‘L.A.’ Reid and Simon Cowell as a judge on the US “X Factor.”

According to the source, ‘L.A.’Reid confirmed that Cole is joining the judge crew and said, “We’re gonna compete against American Idol just fine. I’m very confident. But along with Simon Cowell and Cheryl, I don’t know who the other judge is.”

Several potential celebrities for the fourth judging spot have been rumored, including Nicole Scherzinger, Nicki Minaj, Paula Abdul, and Mariah Carey. At the same time, Snoop Dogg commented that he turned down offers to join the show as a judge. He told Digital Spy, “They asked me to do that, but I don’t think that’s for me. I wouldn’t mind going on the show as a mentor, but not as far as a judge.”
