Nicole Scherzinger Does NOT Regret Her Controvesial X Factor Decision!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooNicole ScherzingerX Factor

Nicole Scherzinger doesn't regret putting Marcus Canty and Rachel Crow into a deadlock on Thursday night's episode of X Factor.

After she couldn't make a decision between the contestant who had been in the bottom two three weeks in a row and Rachel, she left it up to America decide.

Surely, SURELY, she figured America's votes would send Marcus home but this was just a way to let him go without her having to be the bad guy.

But instead, Rachel ended up being the one to get the boot. And it was DEVASTATING!

The audience boo'd, audiences at home tweeted in fury… it's just been on big sh*tstorm! But she doesn't regret any of it, saying:

I don't know. everything happens for a reason. Rachel, it was a surprise to me that she was in he bottom two and now that she's being sent home. But no, I had to leave it up to America.

At this point in the game, I don't want to send anyone home. Marcus had been in the bottom twice already. I wasn't going to make the decision. I just couldn't make the decision, so I left it up to America to vote.

We mean, we get her compassion, but she's being paid to judge! When it comes down to someone who's been in the bottom two three weeks in a row and a girl who you everyone knows should stay… don't risk it!

Rachel probably had the least amount of votes because she was so good that audiences probably didn't think she even needed a fight!

Ugh, we're just sick about all of it! U can watch the drama above!

    O.K. Doll leave the show, you were there to judge. Bye( ;

  2. 2

    Mario, it's over and done with. You keep posting the same issue. Move along now.

  3. 3

    good. she shouldn't. by doing so, it would just perpetuate the illusion that everyone good. People need to start teaching their children that they WILL fail at sometime in their future. Now, in a couple of years this little girl will make a video, come out of the closet, complain that life isn't fair and bitch and whine. GLAAD will take up the chant and try to make everyone realize that there's a little queer in all of us. LOL I can hear it now.

    4:45 is my favorite moment. I can't stop watching it. It made my day. Thank you Nicole!
    Rachel already has Disney knocking on her door so need to cry for the brat. She'll probably be the most successful of them all. In the mean time let me rewind this gem to 4:45!

  5. 5

    As we already learned from 100 years of American Idol, people vote on EMOTION and very often pick the wrong person to win based on that alone. THAT"S WHY WE HAVE EXPERT JUDGES NICOLE, HELLO? Thanks's for ruining this girl's life. There's no guarantees.
    Marcus will never make it. His voice is not up to standard. He's a small time act.
    Simon, please fire this knucklehead!

  6. 6

    WHO GIVES A Fuck what is wrong with this show every week someone has too go home these kids crying like that is hella annoying she is not that great shocking would be Melanie being sent home cause she is the only Good one left Nicole left it to America and America didnt vote for that little girl cause she is hella annoying and "we dont want to hear that week shit no more " Kanye voice !!

  7. 7

    Rachel is such a cute girl. I don't think children that age should be in such a high pressure contest. Marcus does a good job and you can't say singers like Britney Spears and Kesha are as good of vocalist as Rachel is. Simon is right - this is life and sometimes things don't go as planned. Nicole was put in a bad damned if you do situation and I don't fault her. All of these reality contests are a crap shoot. Regardless those two would not have won anyway. Melanie, young homie and Josh are the front runners so it really doesn't matter.

    I like Marcus. I know he'll never win but I am glad that he will be back next week. He's R&B perfection albeit without a lot of personality - more than Trey Songz at least.

  10. 10

    @Shelah hate much? jeez…. Very harsh your comments, perhaps you don't have children and clearly you're no fortune teller. So please take address your nasty comments elsewhere. Not cool to talk about people you don't even know in that manner.. LOSER…

  11. 11

    Where's my comment? It was the best!!

  12. 12

    Nicole votes: "Present"
    "Leading from behind"
    America is hungry for leadership on all fronts.

  13. 13

    This bitch needs to go. For god sakes, if she can't do her job, she doesn't deserve to get paid. And if it's too hard sending a little girl home, then maybe they shouldn't be exploiting children.

  14. ONIT says – reply to this


    The audience boo'd 'cos the American people voted her off? It's not her fault. Blame yourselves. Should've voted to keep her in.

  15. 15

    Re: Snookietoes – I agree. These elimination shows are way too stressful for children. Even adult contestants have said the pressure is extreme. These high pressure situations should be for adults only.

  16. 16

    HAHAHA Thats AWESOME! What a baby. she went on her knees and cried like her mom took away her Nintendo!

    She's ok but she's not THAT good, I heard better singing at Karayoke last night

  17. 17

    Re: nononsense – aren't you guilty of what you are preaching? lol Loser!

  18. 18

    Re: nononsense – … and by the way, i had to add words to your statement to make it make any sense at all. So what i meant to say was Dumbass loser…lol

  19. 19

    Hmm, I've only been following part of the show but Rachel is my absolute favorite. She's gonna go a long way I hope. Very talented. Marcus seemed good but not that unique. I hope we see more of Rachel in the future! Love her.

  20. 20

    Re: rosebud99 – I was thinking the same thing. So young to be put through so much pressure like this. However, many of the music stars started very young and went through similar situations. I just wonder if it is really healthy for kids. On the flipside, Rachel is so talented and why wouldn't she want to start now in building a career for herself in music - it seems it's almost what they have to do. I guess the parents need to decide how much they will put their children through.

  21. 21

    I hope Melanie wins now.

  22. 22

    THANK GOODNESS that she was booted off - she wasn't gonna win that five mil; she simply wasn't as good as the other contestants. I'm sure she has a bright future ahead of her, but not on xFactor.

  23. 23

    Have you ever thought that it was planned this way? Controversy gets ratings. Perhaps America should vote more for the person they want to stay in the competition. I thought for sure that Rachel would stay if it was left up to America….unfortunately and typically, America dropped the ball on that one. Marcus will be gone next week. Marcus sounds like your run-of-the-mill R&B karaoke singer. Boring zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  24. 24

    Nicole shouldn't regret it as Drew was a much better singer and she should still be there!

  25. BOMB says – reply to this


    Marcus is SO incredibly talented. I am blown away by him. It makes me sick that the fucking Americans won't vote for him enough to keep him out of the bottom two. I suppose they wouldn't know talent if it hit them on the side of the head. Rachel is cute…great voice for a little girl, but my god, she is OBVIOUSLY going to be picked up by Disney, so stop crying over it people! As for Nicole, she let America decide, and in the end, it will be America who decides the winner, so why not!? MARCUS ALL THE WAY!

  26. BOMB says – reply to this


    Re: DanoStar – "run of the mill R&B karaoke singer". HAHAHAH you are CLEARLY not a singer or musician are you? That's the problem. All these fucking people who think they know what they are talking about when it comes to music and talent. Sad….

  27. 27

    Simon get rid of Nicole. If they can't do theri job…get out. What a tool.

  28. 28

    How can she say that she doesnt regret her decision when she couldnt make one..Are you kidding me…Simon needs to let her ass go next season. they need judges that have a back bone and make the right decision. Like LA Reid…he knew Rachel made his man look like shit and he should have voted for rachel also…RACHEL WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE 10 YEARS FROM NOW WE WILL STILL BE LISTENING, WATCHING AND LOVING YOU AND THE BIG CAREER YOU WILL HAVE. EVERYONE ELSE WILL BE HASBEENS AND YOU WILL BE A SUPER STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. 29

    Two problems here:
    1) A judge's job is to judge. By not performing the very function she is paid to do, she caused this.
    2) Audiences vote for contestants based on completely arbitrary reasons. The fact that they're talented may not even factor in the vote. Plus, many people are haters. They may have voted her off for no other reason than the majority wanted her to stay. So again, the result is Nicole's fault.

  30. 30

    This entire spectacle is so damn fabricated its disgusting to watch.

  31. 31

    Who cares this much about a freaking talent contest??? Get a real job, ho!

  32. 32

    What's the 800# I can call to vote the entire show off the air?

  33. 33

    This little girl will be stung-out hooker at 16 & living in a Los Angeles Skid-Row insane asylum ranting over & over in her group therapy class about how she was once a Super Star whose life was destroyed by the X-Factor show & Nicole Scherzinger….

  34. 34

    I don't even watch the show but this is so messed up. This young girl was so devastated, it breaks my heart. And Nicole is not fit to be a judge. She's not even onstage and she couldn't handle the pressure. Then she acted like an immature child by sitting there and crying, so while people should have been comforting the young girl they were comforting her.

  35. 35

    Nicole has no opinion, neither does her music. She does not write her songs, she does not play an instrument and she does not have fans. Her leaving it to america shows that she really dd not want to be a judge but hey the whole thing is fixed anyway, even the voting. Simon wants ratings and america wants drama and nicole is just a few shows away from being replaced by mariah anyway. NEXT

  36. 36

    Christina A and Britany S were on Star search younger than this little chick and you know Christina probably had to be removed from the building when she didn't win. That Nicole S has been doing talent shows her whole life too. Justin Beaver was on a talent show and didn't win and his mom through a bloody fit. I am just pointing this out because I don't think this is to young for this girl to "lose her Sh*T" she just REALLY wanted it. What messes them up is the lifestyle afterwards. They picked her because she had this huge personality, her reaction WAS HUGE, and not fake.

  37. 37

    Re: rosebud99 – who gives a shit. this bitch was totally throwing a tantrum…NEXT!!

  38. 38

    Re: KarTrash – so is her nose. huge, that is. UGH!

  39. 39

    gawd that audience are idiots - amercia didn't vote for her - why boo nicole?!! judges having a saving vote is what is crap about this show as it is - let it always be down to the public vote

  40. 40

    her moms fault for condoning her to be put on 'reality ' tv, baby girl is talented no doubt but too young to endure all that bs

  41. 41

    I was so annoyed watching this little brat throw ler little tantrum. She had to go. Marcus is better, and even if he went home she'd ne next. Chris Rene baby!

  42. 42

    People you should be nice. Rachel is a great singer with alot of personality, she will have a career. Marcus on the other hand will have to fight harder for his career after the show. He has a winning smile and is very inviting but he needs the right material and so far he has been a hit and miss. Now Chris, wow so loving Chris. When he is doing CHRIS then we really get so see the real Chris and he is awesome.

  43. 43

    I think Simon should have intervened when Nicole had to put in air quotes "I send rachel crow home" even though she said she didnt want to send rachel home. He should have said this is your chance to save someone who you dont want to go home and give her a reality check for a minute that she was giving up her power. I think everyone genuinely thought that Marcus would have the lowest number of votes including Simon (hence why he didnt intervene). I agree that Rachel will be signed to Disney and if she isnt then it is truly their loss because she stands for all of their values. She can truly be their next big star!!

  45. 45

    Re: BOMB – No, no he isn't. He is awful, karoke singer at best.

  46. 46

    I have mixed feelings about this.

    1. I blame Nicole for not making a decision. Her job is a judge and that's what she is getting paid a lot of money to do. I can understand her having a very hard time making a decision but she still should have made one, even if she chose to send Rachel home. She chickened out and should rethink her position as a judge.

    2. I don't think I like the judges having the last vote b/c they're naturally going to pick their favorites. They should just go with what America votes, I mean that is the idea anyway isn't it? And when it came down to that, Rachel didn't get enough votes.

    3. I don't think the children are necessarily too young. However, their parents and mentors should not fill their heads with nothing but success. They should understand that they could go home with every elimination no matter what the judges say or how the audience reacts. They should be reminded of all of the successful people who have been voted off shows, told no etc and became very successful. Drew and Rachel's reactions tells me they were not fully prepared for any outcome. On Americas got talent they have many children acts who compete and I don't think any of them have acted that way when they got voted off, even little Jackie Evancho who was awesome.

    But I am disappointed in Nicole for not making a decision at all.

  47. 47

    Nicole isn't coming back for season 2 count on that! Simon will make sure of that. Who the fuck is Nicole to judge, the dumb bitch was part of a fad that faded away and in the past her solo career attempt bombed and her 2nd attempt bombed as well. She's nothing and never will result other from the piece of trash she truly is! She should have voted Marcus to go home. He will NEVER make it in the music industry. there are too many male R&B singers and Marcus does not have what it takes, his voice isn't even any good. Renee looks like a meth addict who has a decent voice but no "IT" Factor. Melanie is the only one who has any shot of winning and carrying X-Factor to Season 2.

    I don't blame Nicole at all for what she did and I think Rachel, though good, is too young for the whole thing, anyway. She's like, a little kid. Too young.

  49. 49

    If she cant make the decision dont b a judge then .. quit or something..!! such a dumbass!!

  50. 50

    Nicole has to WORST judge television has ever seen. She has no clue, her comments are moronic, and she is supposed to judge not make anti Simon decisions. Aside from all that the girl blew the other guy away. Canty has been in bottom 3 , 3 weeks in a row. They are paid to judge. And someone tell Paula she is 50 not 20, she is another dope, yet I still watch this stupidity

  51. 51

    that little brat breaking down and crying on the floor is literally the funniest thing Ive seen all year! Bwahahaha. Way too sure she was going through and clearly doesnt have the right temperament for the business which is full of rejection. She's way too false for her age and her mask well and truly shattered at the end! All that over perky perkiness I just found a bit creepy tbh. No she doesnt have a career in music because she now looks a bit unstable!

  52. 52

    Wishing you kept that Irish judge around now Simon??? I couldn't believe it when they replaced her with the piece of sheet Nicole. God, she is such a Beatch! You were hired to judge…not go…oh I can't choose….she just didn't want to get on L.A.'s bad side by voting out his act. Piece of no talent crap Nick.

  53. 53

    Nicole is such a hypocrite! She stands by her decision, please, give me a break! Oh, so, it's ok for her to send Drew home last week based on her save me song as being less "heart felt" than Marcus's. Nicole knowing - as well as the nation - that Rachel's save me song was more "heart felt" than Marcus's and all of a sudden she can't judge on who's going to go home! STFU with your fake tears, ugh!

  54. 54

    The best part of last nights show was Nicole getting booed by the audience!!! LOL!!! Nicole's judging skills are all personal, she doesn't vote based on talent. I believe Nicole sent Drew home to piss off Simon because he always put her ass in her place with his one liners, it's hilarious! Please, Simon Cowell, fire her ASAP, or at least don't bring her back next year. Why did Cheryl Cole have to get booted :(

  55. 55

    So, I don't agree with nicole descision, everybody knew who sang their song better. I Mean wasn't that why they sang? So the judges can pick who sang better. Nicole just didn't want people blaming her, is all. BUT!!!! I don't think she's the only one to blame here. Marcus's mentor (forgot his name) shouldn't be picking people because that's his student. He should be basing it on talent and obviously, as he even said, he's going to "stand by his side"…no good judging on this show….

  56. BOMB says – reply to this


    Re: light2you – Wow….you are REALLY that clueless?!?! You must be one of those Americans I was talking about who wouldn't know talent if it kicked them in the head. Tis a sad, sad world we live in when people shrug off a man with Marcus' talent.

  57. 57

    Re: MoKnowsAll – Irish judge? you mean Cheryl cole? lol she's English. But I guess her Newcastle accent does sound Irish to Americans/

  58. 58

    It is not Nicole's fault,that Rachel went home!The audience did not vote for her,so there is no point in booing her out.Rachel is too young to be put out to this kind of stress and there is a risk that she may end up just like britney or lindsay lohan,so..I think that astro was much better than Rachel and he also ended up going home.Nicole isnt the only one letting for the people to decide it happened already a lot of times.Besides Rachel was so histerical and artificial when she sang I couldnt bare it,and she was sure as well that Marcus would go home,thats why she opened her eyes that big .I am glad Marcus is in the final 3.

  59. 59

    Nicole Shitzinger … coward. More proof that this show is so F A K E.

  60. 60

    The show is unbearable with Abdul & Shitzinger as judges.

  61. 61

    ew this whole thing is sooo dramatic. i agree that this girl is a brat. good thing she's gone

  62. 62

    Obviously Rachel was an amazing singer, but its clear not everyone wanted her or they would have voted for her. Also, Nicole should have known that everyone always votes for a guy! When was the last time a woman won a singing competition?

  63. 63

    andd….it should be left to the vote anyways its not fair if someone who has a lower amount of votes gets to stay over the person who got more votes than them

  64. 64

    Give Nicole a break. Other judges, like Paula and Simon in past weeks have refused to vote someone off and let the deadlock decision be made by the votes. She was trying to be nice.

  65. 65

    there was nothing controversial about nicole's decision. guys get real. rachel crow always sang the same tune of songs. i guess she could have tried and sing out of her comfort as well. she's still very young but too over ambitious for a 13 yr old girl and to top it all simon cowell is blind and gives them hope that they cannot keep up with…….. love her tho' …… it's never the end of the road

  66. 66

    there was nothing controversial about nicole's decision. guys get real! she's still only 13 and has a long way to go. she should come out of her comfort zone of belting out the same sounding vocal and song type in order to be unique and beat all! btw, simon cowel builds her over confidence level without realizing that there are many many other talents out there just becuz he was her mentor……. love her tho'. wish her all the success in life.

  67. 67

    Re: renata93 – Marcus is is the final 4.

  68. Bevi says – reply to this


    If she didn't cry this week, she would have cried next week, because she wasn't going to win. The nearer she got to the winning spot, the harder it would have been for her to go home and she would have cried her little heart out worse than this time. And not only that, she now knows it was America who didn't want to keep her, she won't forever be blaming Nicole. It's good to face reality. I think Nicole did the right thing, actually. She let America have its way and it was fair. She isn't the only judge who has gone to deadlock when they could have used their power to throw somebody out. I would have let America decide too. I think it's Josh or Melanie for the win, so poor little Rachel was in for a crying fit no matter what. She's young but she's quite immature for her age and she looks about 8 or 9. But Disney will kiss it and make it better…

    Re: Rihanna-LiLo-navy – FINALLY someone gets it! Thank you :)

  70. 70

    Nicole will not vote against a black man. From putting through a 70's James Brown wannabe, and only going against one ( Marcus) when her guy was on the line. Had no problem voting then. Had no problem voting Drew off. seemed quite comfy with it. Then, like all other times before, she avoids voting against a black man. Racism has no place in T.V. today. It was clear who should of moved on. If she is there, I, and all I know, won't be.

  71. 71

    Nicole made a big mistake! Marcus should have gone home. I was so shocked. Nicole should be voted off X FACTOR! Go home you are not equipped!!!!!
