Everyone thinks 'X Factor' judge Cheryl Cole is Sheryl Crow




Do you have no idea who Cheryl Cole is? You're not alone, as it looks like the British singer is having a hard time breaking into Simon Cowell's U.S. version of The X Factor because everyone Stateside seems to think she's Sheryl Crow. That's an insult to Crow, don't you think?

The former wife of English footie player Ashely Cole is the 27-year-old singer for Girls Aloud, which is a very popular band across the pond. She is already a judge on the U.K. version of X Factor, but wants to come to America to star in Simon's new project. Her lack of name power here in the U.S. became apparent when Jennifer Hudson was asked about her while in the Isles for the British version of So You Think You Can Dance.

"Sheryl Crow?" Hudson asked before being corrected. "No, I'm not familiar with her," J-Hud said about Cole. And believe us when we say Hudson knows from music personalities on reality shows -- and she only came in seventh on American Idol's third season!
