Scherzinger, who took over for the absent Cole on the judge’s panel, told THR she “tries not to read that” when it comes to what is being reported, and went on to call Cole “a lovely, beautiful girl.”

Abdul added that Cole is “uber-talented. She’s lovely. We’re friends. We have a great time together.”

As for the new show, the former Pussycat Doll dancer said it will be “frickin’ wicked awesome. It’s like a spaceship coming to America to give the people what they want.”

Um, OK. We’ll go with that for now. More from the “X Factor” auditions as they make their way across the States.
