Corbin Bleu: 'X Factor' Co-Host?

Corbin Bleu may be heading to The X Factor – as a co-host!

The 22-year-old actor is close to joining the Fox singing competition to take on its hosting duties, EW reports.

Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger is also reportedly in talks to join Corbin as a co-host, though neither of them have officially signed any deals.

We’ll soon find out whether Corbin will be an X Factor co-host. The show kicks off with its first round of auditions May 8!

That is cool. Vanessa worked with her on rent.

This would be amazing for Corbin.

I don’t understand why Nicole isn’t a judge. She was amazing on the UK X-Factor and people actually know her in the USA, unlike Cheryl Cole. Seems like Simon promised jobs to Cheryl and Paula, saw how awesome Nicole was and wants to fit her in somewhere.

Both wold be a mistake. You better choose wisely Simon. We want this show to succeed in America right? If so then pick someone with a bit of personality.

Vanessa & Zac were the first pair approached for this.
Nicole is a flop, but it could be worse. But now… Corbin?
One would think that they would at least browse the C-List before droping to the Z!

I think Corbin would be the perfect choice for this. I cant think of anyone else that would be better. They’ve all been over exposed.

if that’s who they get for xfactor US then it will be lame. So far loving The Voice on NBC and it has big stars with grammy award winners as coaches and judges and it’s a refreshing new show.

Allie @ 9:01 am on 05/01/2011

It’s not just how big a name they are – no-one knew Simon in America before American Idol. Nicole was amazing on the UK X-Factor. She wasn’t on Simon’s radar for the US X-Factor before she came on and wowed everyone. It now looks that Simon is desperate to have her involved somehow.

Zac and Vanessa were never approached for the X-Factor. Simon said that was fake.

Neither of of them would e a good choice at all for X-Factor. Corbin Blue was in the HSM movies and is another Disney factory output but his music career was a failure. Lets face it most of these Disney radio so called “stars” will never be played on mainstream radio nor sell cd’s outside of the Disney “world”. Out of the dozens of these “stars” only Miley and Selena have actual talent and have mainstream success..and for good reason. He is not qualified to give opinion on music for a show with such high status in the UK that is now going to try to make a hit in the US. Nicole has some experience in music. But lets face it her solo career is not star status and the Pussycat Dolls will not be remembered for anything a few years from now.

X-Factor and Simon Cowell himself are destined for failure anyway. Just like the sea of American Idol failures where only a hand ful of winners or top 10 finalists that are actually making music and most of them are not doing it on SYCO record label but on their own. X-Factor finalists who had massive fan support in the UK such as Joe McElderry who has the most amazing voice ive ever heard and Shayne Ward whose had 3 successful albums were just dropped by Simon and SYCO this week. He has no loyalty to the winners of the show and might know music but has no concept how to sustain them or market them. They even made sure those two artists music and videos were not available on Youtube or for sale in the US.

@Allie: Cheryl Cole will be a great judge on U.S.XFactor. Cheryl is completely charming and talented but she’s also completely gorgeous. love Cheryl songs Fight For This Love, Parachute and Promise This

Jane @ 2:03 am on 05/02/2011

Corbin and Nicole would be great, I love both of them. Neither seem to have a big ego that would get in the way of the show, like Simon and Ryan. Nicole is recording and selling well right now and she won Dancing With the Stars, so she has popularity.

corbin looks gross

Allie @ 3:50 pm on 05/02/2011

Nicole’s got a decent solo career – everywhere apart from the USA. Her latest single went to No 1 in the UK, beating Adele. For some reason it hasn’t taken off for her in the USA yet. As a presenter, Corbin does not need to be sucessful. Ryan Seacrest does not have a successful music career but no-one has a go at him for hosting AI. In fact, was he not just a radio DJ before AI?

This is probably getting off-topic but Cheryl will probably be horrible. Nicole totally showed her up on the UK version, both as a judge and as a singer. Nicole sang live and did an energetic dance routine while struggling with a throat infection. Cheryl mimed half of hers and did half the dancing Nicole did.
