‘The X Factor’ UK: Rita Ora, Nicole Scherzinger sign on as guest judges

Nicole's returning ... in Britain.

Could Rita Ora potentially be the next permanent judge on “The X Factor” overseas? While it’s too early to know an answer on that, Simon Cowell is at least bringing the “How We Do” singer in for a round of auditions.

Ora confirmed the news this week in a new post on Twitter, and just as she was leaving we found out that Nicole Scherzinger was going to be making her return to the British show to judge a round of her own. This marks Nicole’s first TV gig since being fired from the American version last year after being booed off the stage over her lack of decision-making. However, this move makes much more sense, as she is already incredibly popular in Britain and will hopefully have learned from some of what went down in America last fall.

Both versions of “The X Factor” are filming simultaneously at this point, with the shows each launching with new episodes in the fall.

What do you think about these two selections by Cowell and ITV?
