Is Nicole Scherzinger Leaving The X Factor?

by at . Comments

Acknowledging a few mistakes made on the first season of The X Factor - too much judge bickering, overly involved production numbers - Simon Cowell told People Magazine this week he'll evaluate all aspect of the show for season two and that 2012 will be a "bloodbath."

We assume the producer was talking about the on-air competition, but might he also have been referring to backstage changes on the way?

With rumors that Steve Jones won't be asked back as host, Nicole Scherzinger recently laid the groundwork for her departure, as well.

“Next year for me, it’s about my music,” the singer told Radar Online. “This has been quite a learning experience, quite a journey for me. I didn’t expect to have been so emotional through the whole elimination process. I wanted to just mentor and empower artists.”

Scherzinger said she had planned to release an album in 2011, but her judging gig was too "time consuming."

Will you miss Nicole as a judge if she leaves? The former Pussycat Doll came under fire a couple of this this season, actually receiving death threats after not voting to keep Drew Ryniewicz on for another week. Do you want Scherzinger to return to the panel next year?

I don't think she should be back. She is a classic chameleon that has no idea who she truly is and that is sad. When the pressure is on a chameleon will generally crater which is what happened with Rachel Crow.


I don't think Nichole should come back next season as a judge. She certainly does not possess the professionalism that is needed when making decisions. I really became very frustrated with her when she became so emotional and unsure about her decision when so much was at stake for the competitors. They deserved more respect.


She is to weak for this, keep yodeling! Quit crying!
