Paula Abdul Comments On X Factor's Dramatic Outcome!

| Filed under: Paula AbdulNicole ScherzingerX Factor

So by now we're sure you're well aware of the major drama that went down on Thursday night's X Factor.

Nicole Scherzinger put Marcus Canty and Rachel Crow into a deadlock because she just didn't have the heart to be a judge and send marcus one of them home.

We bet she thought the voters would have voted Marcus off (he's been in the final two for three weeks), but unfortunately it was the little bright shining star who got the boot.

Audiences boo'd the hell out of Nicole! And the Twitter backlash sung the same tune!

But Paula Abdul, the zen mama bear of the show, wanted to send her love out. So she tweeted:

Wow. What a night. #xfactor

@nicolescherzy I applaud you for listening to you heart last night because I know how genuinely torn you were..

@NicoleScherzy you felt having America decide was the best choice in this scenario for you. It just goes to show you..

@NicoleScherzy All we can do is the best that we can and you did your best Nicole! xoP

Nicole has remained silent in the Twitterverse. And really, what can she say?

We know it must have been really tough for her, but she is a judge and we're not sure that was the best judgement call given the situation.

Thoughts??

    Yeah right! Like Paula can type in s/what coherent sentences…whatevs! She told her rep to type "stupid skank' "forgivs" .



  2. 2

    I'm sure it would have been very easy for some one heartless like yourself.

    How can you say this isnt nicole's fault?? I would have respected her decision if she had made one, but she never. She couldnt make a decision because she didnt want to hurt eithers feelings. Well, this is more than a singing competition, and even is she thought Marcus did a better iob that night, and voted Rachel off, I would have respected her decision, because thats what she gets paid for, and then we could say AMERICA was to blame for Rachels early departure. It is no secret she is a little star with a huge personality. If they want someone who has Xfactor, not iust singing talent like American Idol, then she wins out of them all. Simon created this show from taking all of the bad things from AI. This is why instead of sending the bottom votes home each week, they take both lowest and battle. Bc America makes mistakes sometimes and forgets it a talent show not a popularity contest. When it came time to battle ( which is what iudges are suppose to iudge based off of) Rachel blew away Marcus! And nicole couldnt do her iob and make a decision. ITS HER DUTY!!! She needs to go. they should have kept Cheryl!!!!!

    I think this kind of stress is way too much for a child. Many adult contestants from these elimination shows say that the pressure is almost unbearable. To put a child in that situation is just wrong. There should be an age limit.



  5. 5

    Nicole MUST GO. She's paid (a lot) to be a judge, so JUDGE! Your selected for your experience and knowledge in the music industry (we hope) and your decision should be an expert one. Why don't we just let the audience pick all the winners, why have judges? Dumb, weak, GUTLESS, bitch!



  6. 6

    Ugh… Paula, you really shouldn't be sticking up for Nicole. Her job was to be a judge, not a spineless weak twit who abandons her job and allows the wrong person to go home on a high stakes competition show. What makes X Factor different than Idol is that they supposedly have a panel of qualified talent judges who have the final voting power on who to keep vs just the audience votes. Nicole disregarded that.



  7. 7

    Both Nicole and Paula have been in this situation where they have to make a "JUDGES" decision and they are too emotional and don't want to make it and leave it up to the "Deadlock" decion. They are defeating the best aspect of the show…the chance to save a talented contestant who has ended up in the bottom two. If those two can not make the tough decisions…..they should be gone next season……if there is a next season. Ultimately this show has been off the rails from the begining.



  8. 8

    I actually find that girl annoying! She acted like a spoiled brat! Maybe she's so used to being put in the pedestal because of her talent that she can't accept defeat. Anyway, this show should just raise the age limit to 16 yrs old and up. Can you imagine another 12 and 13 year old contestant freaking out again when eliminated next season? UGH!



  9. 9

    gOD HELP THESE PEOPLE IF THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH SOMETHING REAL LIKE CANCER. WHAT A LOAD OF OLD DRECK. THE X-FACTOR JUSDGES GO FOR THE MOST DRAMATIC COP OUT AND YOU ALL FALL FOR IT. CANCEL THIS SHIT!

    Im not surprised Rachel didnt get enuf votes. Many active voters, myself included, decided not to participate after last week. The "save me" song has too many loopholes. 1 week judges use as a bonus performance the next week use it as "sole performance" all the while Deadlock is based on previous performance. Some people pay fees to vote. After seeing how lopsided the save me song is~ & inconsistant reasoning for going to the deadlocks… make the whole thing unappealing. Its not Nicole fault for sending Rachel home directly, but indirectly because of Nicole past choices & her choice to act like a "teenage meangirl" did turn off alot of people & made the judging seem like cheap entertainment. Never do you hear anything but "flowered up" critiques from the judges, with exception of Simon. Well except Drew, None of them had tough time tell her, what they felt her flaws were. The obvious lack of "fair" judging" has just made this show take too much energy to watch.



  11. 11

    First I'd like to say that we all know Marcus should have gone home a long time ago based on his talent.Rachel beat him by a long shot!Secondly her reaction was very normal considering feeling humilated in front of millions of people.(Being Booted off the show).Also as far as the judging is concerned yes I do blame Nicole in a way because as we all know she has to be a professional and her being close with both singers means nothing.She has to understand she took the job to be a professional not a friend!The problem here is although people love the singers they dont bother to vote..Everyone in the audience was chanting Rachels name so if they voted it would have been different.. Rachels breakdown with her mom was that her family sacrificed alot for her to be there.No one knows what goes on behind the scenes and how much these singers have to pay out of pocket to be apart of it.Just like Drew's freakout a normal reaction.So for those who think its bad well I guess your not human.Marcus should have left a long time before Drew..Nothing unique about him at all.Vocally I mean.As far as letting America vote.Really? What does America really know about talent obviously considering how most of these shows go.It's all a popularity contest instead of a talent contest.



  12. 12

    If this stupid bitch cant even cast a vote without coping out, she should not have one.



  13. 13

    lmfao yeah maybe Nicole shouldve been more professional and done her job and made a legit decision instead of babbling but its not her fault Rachel got sent home. It's America's. What if Nicole wouldve made a strong, put together decision to send Rachel home? Then it's not an argument about her "making a decision," it turns into a battle about the decision she made. Why did it have to come down to Nicole anyways? What if she was the first to vote, who would be booed then? America shouldve voted for your home girl Rachel if you thought she deserved to stay.



  14. 14

    It astounds me that people take this seriously…with all the trouble in the world and need for volunteers to help homeless, the elderly, women and children people comment on this utter garbage….America, wake up…I know people want entertainment from time to time, great….but this? Just another example of dumbing down America.



  15. 15

    sanfran1 — then obviously you are wasting your time… Hurry up and go help some ppl and don't waste your time around here.



  16. 16

    Nicole made a poor decision, she should be judging - that's what she's getting paid for. I hate it when then take it so personally, Rachel evidently has the talent to make it AND that other dude had been in the bottom for weeks, it is disrespectful for me and all the millions who vote to see the save the one who we don't like OVER AND OVER again. FIRE NICOLE!



  17. 17

    Simon please fire Nichole. She's paid to Judge yet last night she couldn't judge. Usher I mean Marcus was in the BTM 3 weeks in a row. He needed to go home.



  18. 18

    For God's sake, it's a television competition. Life does not end after the X Factor. She is a very talented little girl but they should not have children this age in the competition when they clearly cannot handle the pressure. Someone has to go home every week and the contestants obviously know this. I know she's only young but she did not do herself any favours by reacting like that.



  19. 19

    There is no doubt that Nicloe sang Marcus under the table. They are both beautiful people but Nicole was the best! I'm much older than Nicole and it probably would have taken all I have not to cry especially when I knew… I was the best! We would have been fired if we did not do our jobs effectively so why should other people who are paid to do a service not be. Judges make big money! She will move on to have a great career though.



  20. 20

    Re: BELLADMW – Don't you mean Rachel?? Nicole is the judge…



  21. 21

    UGHH!!! NICOLE!! LETS JUST SAY THAT I WONT BE SEEING YOU NEXT SEASON!!! YOU KNEW RACHEL CROW HAD THIS IT WAS ONE OF HER BEST PERFORMANCES SHES EVER HAD!!

RACHEL CROW IS A GREAT SINGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! nicole ur just a skanky bitch!!!
    Ps. THE LEAST U CAN DO IS GIVE HER MONEY FOR HER OWN BATHROOM!!!!



  22. 22

    Re: graceelizabeth – it doesnt matter even though shes young she can sing and it was a great thing to let the ages at 13 so we can know who has a gift and we found someone just like that and her name is rachel crow!!1



  23. 23

    Re: grace21 – AGREE!!!!



  24. 24

    I was absolutely disgusted with Nicole Scherzinger the last two weeks. When Drew was eliminated her and Paula should have sent it to deadlock, but instead saved a weaker performer. This week, when she should have done her job and voted, she spinelessly sent it to deadlock because she didn't want to look bad. Well, it backfired and she now looks like a total idiot. Marcus Canty has been in the bottom 3 times now and they keep saving him. Why? I don't get it. I'm sure Rachel will do just fine, but it was horrible that she was sent packing the first time she hit the bottom two. Also, her save me song was much better. Shame on you Nicole!



  25. 25

    she felt she would be doing a 'good' thing this week by going for a deadlock, WHICH she should have done LAST WEEK when DREW WAS ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK with MAR-THE HELL-CUS…but she's making wrong moves, one after another, maybe next week she'll chop off Melanie and Josh, so Marcus and Chris will be in the finale, which will be the biggest disappointment of the year.



  26. 26

    I can not believe how much I dislike Nicole. I this close to not watching the show any longer.



  27. 27

    I don't deny that she can sing, I already stated how talented she is, but the age in the UK for contestants is 16+ and Gary Barlow, one of the UK judges thinks that 16 is even too young considering the pressure of the competition. There can be many other platforms which children that age can get their start, but I don't think the X Factor is the right one for children so young. And that is just my opinion.
