Is Nicole Scherzinger Getting The X Factor Axe, Too?

nicole-scherzinger-hints-at-x-factor-exit

Uh-oh! Sounds like someone wants it to sound like she's leaving on her own terms!

Nicole Scherzinger has had a less-than-stellar run on the first season of X Factor as a member of the judges panel - and a last minute replacement for Cheryl Cole - and although there have been reports that she'll be bumped back to host when Steve Jones is axed, recent comments from the singer herself seem to point to its validity!

She says:

'Next year for me, it’s about my music. 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. I’m used to being on stage and performing and singing for people and people cheering for me. I am an artist first, not a judge first. The reason [my album] hasn’t come out yet is because of The X Factor. It’s been so time consuming. I work with these contestants six days a week. So I delayed the album, but I was able to perform one of my new singles last week. I really want to find the right roles and the right opportunities in acting. Theater is actually what I studied in college.'

Eek! We're going to completely disregard her lies comments about her album, as anyone with half a brain would know how FOOLISH it is to deliberately delay the release of something when there's a venue on which to promote it twice a week!

Either way, though, we're glad she's got a good attitude about moving on to other opportunities!

Now get Chezza back! Good lord, please!

    I predict they will try to get Mariah Carey again. They wanted her last season and she declined. It's a matter of whether or not Mariah will do it. I bet she is there first choice as a replacement though.



  2. 2

    Maybe she isn't lying. Lord knows she ain't no J. Lo. I would leave too if some whack job was threatening me over some damn talent show.



  3. 3

    Well if any one knows about lies it you Mario.
    What are you going to do when your mommy has finally had enough of your hate. If she turns her back you will be 100% friendless.

    They should go for Mariah Carey. Anyway, Nicole has tried too hard but her music is too generic and bland. I mean, anyone with ears could here that Right There was originally written for Rihanna, or at least written to resemble Rude Boy. Nicole has an amazing voice, but she herself doesn't seem to have the "X-Factor" and she shouldn't be judging people when she hasn't been a breakthrough in the music industry herself as a solo artist. She should've performed "Don't Hold Your Breath" on there too, that is actually a good song but she let it be killed off from not promoting it.

    Oh, Mario I thought you two were friends???

    Nicole = out, Mariah = in !!!! and everyone is happy, finally, a judge who knows what she's talking about :-) ))

    She's USELESS as a judge……so is Paula, but she's at least crazy so she gets to stay…lol
    I just don't like Nicole…she's beautiful, can sing, can dance…but I just don't give a crap…apparently I'm not the only one considering her album has been shelved a few times from lack of interest or mediocre work. She comes off as very FAKE and over dramatic. When she was performing on X Factor the other week, she was ACTING out all the emotions of the song..instead of feeling them…over dramatics…ughh

    Re: anewlow – I believe she was pregnant at the time and couldn't do it…I think they should go get her now…She's mega talented and had been the most successful female artist ever..I think?..something like that. IF I was a singer on that show I'd much rather be mentored by Mariah Carey than Nicole Sherzingwhatever or worse….Paula..LOL

    If they can get Mariah Carey, I might just start watching this show. Not because I'm much of a fan of Mariah or her music, but because this is a singing competition and Mariah actually has the pipes - and technically one of the best vocal ranges of any singer of all time. I watched The Voice one time and was more impressed with it than any other show because it actually had judges/mentors that could really sing. L.A. Reid is a good judge to have because he's a producer, but I am so over Paula Abdul - she is a dancer, not a singer.



  10. 10

    I sure do fucking hope so. I'm am SO freakin tired of producers hiring these bimbos who don't even have a fuking resume!! just axe that useless bitch and get someone who is KNOWN in the music business to JUDGE!!!



  11. 11

    When they got rid of Cheryl Cole I promised myself I would not watch a single episode and I didn't. Can't stand Nicole and good riddance.



  12. 12

    Yep, NS..SJ, time to be on the move now!



  13. 13

    I liked Nicole as s judge very much. She seemed genuine to me and has all the credentials to be a good judge and mentor as does Paula.



  14. 14

    Calling her an artist is like calling the kid making McDonald's french fries a chef. She couldn't sing without AutoTune, and the lyrics to her songs are just sex because she's not smart to do anything but whore herself out. Having her gone might give the show a little musical credibility.



  15. 15

    I never watch these talent shows like this because their all fixed. But by reading articles it seems as if she was an awful judge… [receiving death threats, and being persuaded by Paula to make a decision she couldn't make on her own]…. plus, reading previous comments, it seems many approve of mariah carey, and i'm sure that since she isn't pregnant and 200lbs now, she'll agree to get back into the spotlight…. look what happened to j.lo?!?!?!!?



  16. 16

    Whatever you think of Nicole. Cheryl is a thousand times worse. She can't sing at all.



  17. 17

    I came to the conclusion she was getting axed when she "screwed up" and got that 14year old, TECHNICALLY, voted off because she couldn't do her job as a judge. The reaction she got from it was overwhelmingly negative, too.



  18. 18

    They need to get rid of Paula too. She is only fun when she is on drugs or drunk. I know this is horrible to say. Nicole as far as a pop star, has always been and almost but not quite. She had everything going for her but I guess people thought, been there seen that. Her personality and those rumors of being a bitch didn't help. Beautiful women have to be sweet and humble in Hwood or they are out!



  19. 19

    Honestly I am glad. I think she is gorgeous & sexy gal with some dancing talent but limited vocal talent. She was a horrible judge. Rude & show offy. Bye bye Nicole go do some cheesy Dance show or a cut rate so so review strip review show at the Viper Room. Your 15 minutes is at 13.5 & counting as a singer.



  20. 20

    I see Jose Rizal spirit in Nicole………… X-factor is a hit, why fix something that isnt broken………..They all deserve their New year bonuses…. Speciallyyyyyyy NICOLE…….



  21. 21

    She's SUCH a bad judge, fair enough Cheryl can't sing for shit but at least she does the judge role well.

    I would say this!! Please Bring Cheryl back!! I'm sure everyone has their disagreements about their voice but the show is about the contestants and I'm sure Cheryl has a much better hands on role than that downgrade which is Scherzinger!! If I were the Fox Executives I would make it a priority that she and Paula never see the light of day. Bring back Cheryl Cole (and not to put in an opt. out clause - no need for that!!) maybe put in Kelly Rowland because she did her role well in the last season of UK XF and that's one star-studded panel.



  24. 24

    NICOLE FLOPZINGER IS ONLY GOOD IN PLAYBOY OR PENTHOUSE… SHE SHITS ON EVERYTHING ELSE. SHE SUCKED ON XFACTOR UK BEFORE. I COULDNT BELIEVE THE TWAT MADE IT ON THE US VERSION. SHE WAS OVER DRAMATIC AND INDECISIVE ON THE UK VERSION TOO. WHEN SHE WAS ANNOUNCED TO BE ON THE US VERSION, I LITERALLY CROAKED FOR A MINUTE. I KNEW THE BITCH WOULD PULL THE SAME STUNTS. LIKE THEY SAY… YOU CAN CHANGE THE ENVIRONMENT BUT YOU CANT CHANGE THE TWAT THAT IS #FLOPZINGER. AND THAT GAY NEUROTIC STEVE JONES HAS TO GO AS WELL. BITCH PULEEEZ….!!!! TRUTH!!



  25. 25

    She is FIRED! Her music sucks and her whole cry baby act is as fake as her nose and boobs. NEXT



  26. 26

    Yeah she can sing and Cheryl Cole can't but at least Cheryl didn't make you want to punch the TV. Nicole just has a bitch face.



  27. 27

    Re: DimeDime – Cheryl made me want to punch my tv many times. When she picked cher and katie over gamu. Her constant nattering with simon while the contestants were trying to perform. Her constant need for a cigarette during commercial breaks that kept everyone waiting. Also I dont think she ever made a judges comment first on the panel. She just agreed with the other judges all the time. Bloomin useless she was.



  28. 28

    Re: Mrs Cloudatlas – i agree. Cheryl Cole was even worse than Nicole, and not hands on at all. Very selfish! Misused her position to put down a few contestants on live TV. She is not that nice to be honest. It will be good to have Mariah Carey or Janet Jackson if she is up for it.
