Nicole says she found out with the rest of us.
The whole X Factor drama has been a rollercoaster of emotion and crap from Simon Cowell, and it's been bloody hard to keep up with all the changes! In all honesty sometimes we just wanted to put our heads under the duvet and come out when it was all over and we knew for definite what was going on, but we kept updated because that's the kind of serious, investigative journalists we are.
It seems that it was just as much of a hoo-hah for Nicole Scherzinger as it was for us.
"I'm kind of finding out along with everyone else," she told Graham Norton. On the Graham Norton show. Odd place to bump into him.
"It's kind of crazy to read about it in the newspaper first."
This comes after Simon Cowell said that the offer was totally open to Cheryl Cole to come back, but she didn't answer any phonecalls and the 24hr deadline had passed. Read the full story here.
Nicole also said that while she thinks she can learn a lot from Simon she'll be mainly concentrating on the contestants.
Oh it's all a bit of a circus isn't it? Do you think she'll be a good judge? Did you like her when she was on the UK version as a guest?
