Cheryl Cole's profile in US is still very low

Simon Cowell has all but confirmed Cheryl Cole as a judge on the US X Factor, but American stars still have no idea who the Geordie singer is.

Former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson was asked about Cheryl during a trip to the UK – but thought she was being asked about a different Sheryl – one with 9 Grammy Award nominations to her name   

Sheryl Crow?’ Jennifer, 29, asked.

Once put straight she replied: ‘No, I’m not familiar with her.’

Jennifer Lopez admitted last month that she hadn’t heard about the 27-year-old either. 

‘Ah, someone mentioned her to me yesterday,’ Jennifer, 41, told Fabulous. She’s a singer, right?
 
‘I don’t know too much about her, I don’t know her music.

‘I’d be happy to learn about it!’
