‘The X Factor’ UK: Simon Cowell may offer Nicole Scherzinger expensive deal

The latest news -Despite some gossip about a possible reunion of a former judging panel on “The X Factor” UK, it is looking instead now that when the show returns in the fall, Simon Cowell may really want Nicole Scherzinger back for yet another season as a judge.

So how much is he willing to open his wallet in order to make it happen? Think along the lines of close to $5 million US. According to a source over at the Sunday People, Simon is willing to offer Nicole a contract of 3 million pounds if she will stick around for a third season, mostly because he considers her to be a perfect addition to the show in between her feedback and some of the ridiculous comments that she makes:

“Simon absolutely loves Nicole. She is his perfect judge. She’s so highly thought of by him that it’s quite unbelievable. She’s thought of as one of the family. Simon loves her both on screen and off and feels she has been extremely popular with the viewers. He’s getting in quick because he doesn’t want to lose her to other commitments she has.”

If you ask us, so much of the rumors and gossip that is floating around out there is mostly meaningless, since Nicole will make the decision that she wants to make. Even though she is working on new music and has other commitments, we believe that if the producers of the show want her back for another season, she will be back. The major reason for that is solely that this is a great platform for her to release some new music. She is a star, but not one like Rihanna or a Katy Perry. As a matter of fact, she is much more successful in the UK than she ever was in America.
