The X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger has received mixed reviews here in the States during the show's first season. Former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland has struggled in the same role on the U.K. version, after replacing Cheryl Cole for the most recent season across the pond.

Is the solution for the pop stars to simply swap roles? According to TV Guide, maybe. A source told the website that X Factor mastermind Simon Cowell "thinks [Rowland] will be amazing on the U.S. show... So there's talk of a job swap."

Nothing has officially been confirmed, but it's definitely an interesting idea. Nicole is a bigger artistic hit in back in England, while America remembers Destiny's Child fondly. It might just work.
