Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones confirmed as ‘X Factor’ hosts

After much speculation, Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger has finally been confirmed as a host for America’s new version of the ‘X Factor’. The singer will be joined by British TV presenter Steve Jones as co-host.

"These two are going to be great together," said Simon Cowell. "I have always wanted Steve to work with us; I think he is a real star. Nicole is fantastic. I loved working with her on the U.K. 'X Factor' last year. She is gorgeous and super-talented."

The announcement was made on Fox News Saturday ahead of the programme’s debut this fall. Judges enlisted for the show so far include L.A. Reid, Cheryl Cole and Cowell.
