X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has been offered a £10 million contract to join the US version of the show, the Daily Mail reports.
Simon Cowell is said to have worked hard to persuade American TV bosses to sign her up.
They apparently loved her work on the UK talent show – but were concerned the Newcastle lass didn't have a high enough profile Stateside.
In her favour, Cheryl has been championed by Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.
She's also known to Americans through her close friendship with Dancing With The Stars professional Derek Hough.
They struck up a friendship when he appeared on the video for her single Parachute.
