Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell Confirms Fergie Has Been Put Forward For X Factor

Simon Cowell has confirmed Black Eyed Peas star Fergie is in contention to take a judging role on his upcoming U.S. version of The X Factor.
The music mogul is currently putting together a panel for his latest TV venture, which is due to launch later this year (11).
Antonio 'L.A.' Reid has already been confirmed as one of the judges and rumours are rife over who will take the other coveted spots, with Jessica Simpson, Nicole Scherzinger and British X Factor judge Cheryl Cole all said to be in the running.
Cowell has now confirmed Fergie as another name on his list of potential candidates - but the job will depend on the singer's schedule.
He says, "All I can tell you is that her name was put forward. But... we have to check out everyone's availability... You're working five to six days a week.
"I can confirm that her name has been put forward."
