The X Factor is down to three contestants: Melanie Amaro, Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik.

In a week, meanwhile, the Fox singing competition may also be down one host.

Sources tell Deadline that Steve Jones will not be asked back for season two, as fans really haven’t taken to the Brit. He was initially paired with Nicole Scherzinger as host, but then Cheryl Cole was removed from the judging table prior to the season kicking off and Scherzinger took her place.

It’s far too early to know who will take over for Jones, but Nicole could head back on stage again and a new judge could be brought in next fall.
