According to PEOPLE, Scherzinger will join judges Antonio "L.A." Reid and Cowell himself on the U.S. version of the hit U.K. show, with the third judging slot yet to be filled.

Cowell appeared on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show in March and dished about Scherzinger, saying, "I absolutely adore her. She's gorgeous and ruthlessly ambitious."

The former Pussycat Doll appeared on the U.K.'s 'The X Factor' last summer as a guest judge and wowed members of the U.K. show. Fellow judge Louis Walsh praised Scherzinger, saying, "This girl has the X Factor in every way. She was incredibly impressive and ticked every box."

There's no word on whether or not Scherzinger will have a co-host on the U.S. show, but Cowell has hinted he'd like two hosts, as opposed to Seacrest's solo 'American Idol' gig.

'The X Factor' is due to launch in the fall on FOX.
