Simon Cowell Fires X Factor Judges Paula Abdul And Nicole Scherzinger
Talk about shaking things up!!!
Simon Cowell has stunned everyone by doing some serious firing over at his Fox talent competition show. First person to go was host Steve Jones and then!!! He reportedly dumped both his old friend Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger as judges.
For now only Simon and fellow judge L.A. Reid will be returning for the second season of the show.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Simon, who created The X Factor, recently had the show’s creative team meet for a top secret meeting out in the UK to take a hard look at the show’s first season to detail “what went wrong and what was done right on season one.”
The show which premiered on September 21, 2011 on Fox, fell short on the huge ratings expectations which Simon had hoped for.
The only person to come forward and confirm the news was the show’s host who took to Twitter on Monday afternoon saying:
“I won’t be hosting next season Xfactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time. “Good luck to everyone on the show.”
