Simon Cowell Settles on X Factor Hosts

By

Simon Cowell has to have his judges and hosts in place for The X Factor by May 8, the date they'll all be required to attend full audition rounds, and it's coming down to the wire. Cowell told Deadline that he plans to sign Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole to sit next to him and L.A. Reid on the judges' dais, and now, EW reports that X Factor is in negotiations with Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and High School Musical alum Corbin Bleu to co-host the show. Do the two of them put together make a Ryan Seacrest (or even a Carson Daly)? [EW]
