Will Smith is set to join Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole as a judge on the US version of The X Factor. The judging panel will consist of another female star, who has not yet been named. The show is set to premiere in September of this year.

“Simon thinks Will and Cheryl will be a brilliant ­formula. He’s one of the biggest names in America, and considered to be a talented musician as well as actor.”

Personally, I’m a huge fan of the UK version of The X Factor and having Will Smith just sweetens the deal a little bit. Very excited to see where the show goes!
