Former Pussycat Dog star, Nicole Scherzinger, who was a judge on “The X Factor USA,” for last years season, is now acting as a guest judge while on the British version of the show. She is replacing Kelly Rowland while the executives find a replacement for Rowland.

Scherzinger’s filled in last year for Dannii Minogue. Minogue took a maternity leave. She then turned down a full-time position for this season.

Although it has not been confirmed there are rumors floating around that Scherzinger has been offered the job full time and that she is the only person being considered. Apparently Scherzinger has been offered more than a half million dollars to accept the judging position.

Although this is one consideration the other is if she can commit to the show. The executives are reporting that the singer is showing positive signs toward accepting the position full time although Scherzinger has not confirmed this.
