And Simon Cowell’s “X Factor” hosts are …

By Sean O’Connell Move over, Ryan Seacrest. Two new hosts are taking the reality singing reigns, courtesy of Simon Cowell’s new “X Factor” program.

Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones have been named co-hosts of Cowell’s talent-scout program, which recently added UK “X Factor” judge Cheryl Cole to the judge’s panel, THR reports.

“Jones and Scherzinger will join the highly-anticipated singing competition on Sunday, when its judges rounds kick off in Los Angeles. The show will bow in September on Fox,” the trade reports.

As for the fourth and reportedly final judge, the person remains a mystery, though most speculate that Cowell’s “Idol” pal Paula Abdul will land the gig in time.

    I think Nicole should be a judge as she was better than Cheryl Cole on the UK version, even for that short time. I like Paula and she has got experience as a choreographer and singer. Cheryl Cole cannot sing, she mimes, I do not dislike Cheryl but in mny opinion she cannot sing or is talented enough to judge, she is just Simon’s pet.. Simon Cowell has got it all wrong.
