Did Simon Cowell give the game away?
The high-trousered one is said to have slipped up during a video link between TV studios in the US and England.
When asked if Chezza would be joining the hedge-like-haired Cowell as a judge in America, Simon is said to have firmly replied with 'Yes', before back-tracking and denying he'd ever said it.
That man seems mental to us.
He's said to have then claimed the decision hadn't actually been made yet, and blamed the time delay for his comment.
Rumours also doing the rounds are that Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Katy Perry were all offered Cheryl's spot on the US panel, but all turned it down.
We just don't know WHAT to believe anymore.
What do you guys think?
