L.A. Reid Says Cheryl Cole Is Third 'X Factor' Judge

Polydor Records(NEW YORK) -- Producer L.A. Reid will be seen this fall as one of the celebrity judges in Simon Cowell's upcoming talent competition The X Factor.

Fox has been keeping a tight lid on its judge roster, but Reid let slip to Entertainment Weekly who will be joining him and Cowell: Cheryl Cole.

"We're gonna compete against American Idol just fine," Reid tells the magazine.  "But along with Simon Cowell and Cheryl, I don't know who the other judge is."

Cole scored 20 consecutive top 10 singles in the U.K., and also acted as a judge on the hit British version of The X Factor.
