Nicole Scherzinger Better Than Cheryl Cole?

Simon Cowell's mate Sinitta reckons Nic's more suited to the US X Factor than our Chezza.

Occasional sidekick to Simon on the UK talent show, his singer pal Sinitta has dished her take on Cheryl Cole getting the chop.

"Cheryl is beautiful but they have lots of beautiful people in the US" Sinitta said.

"Especially in Hollywood. Simon was right to let her go."

Sinitta who has often tweeted her love for the 'Parachute' singer, has controversially said she thinks Nicole Scherzinger is more suited to the job than Cheryl.

"I think Nicole will do better on the American X Factor," she told Reveal magazine. 

"She’s used to the culture and she’s stunning."
