Perez Hilton: Cheryl Cole is a nobody
Perez reckons there are much better people for the job - including all-American singer and TV personality Jessica Simpson, 30.
'I think it would be disastrous if Simon Cowell gave Cheryl Cole a place on the judging panel,' says Perez, 32.
'She shouldn't get it.
'No one really knows who Cheryl is over here and I doubt anyone would understand her accent.
'Why would Simon go for a nobody if he can get someone like Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera to join the show?
'The judges should be Mariah, Christina, Simon and me - 4 massive divas.'
