Is Nicole Scherzinger Now Getting Cut From The X Factor UK?!

| Filed under: Mel BMusic MinuteNicole ScherzingerX FactorReality TV


She just can't catch a break, can she?!

Despite getting kicked off the judges panel after one season on The X Factor USA, Nicole Scherzinger was brought in to replace the departing Kelly Rowland on the UK edition of the reality competition for the currently-airing ninth series!

However, as the show's viewership is down THREE MILLION people since last year, sources close to production have revealed that producers are considering a massive creative overhaul to improve ratings for its next season — and that may mean cutting the former Pussycat Doll and having Mel B take her spot!

Furthermore, insiders explain:

"It maybe airs a little early and people struggle when they might be on holiday or enjoying the sunshine at home. The guest judges just don't work. It's great for audiences who are watching live but it doesn't translate well on the telly. People get confused as the lineup's always changing from song to song."

Very true! We could certainly get behind THAT specific change!

But doesn't seem fair to place the blame for ratings on Nicole, given how the season is only just starting to pick up!

Plus, Nicole wasn't even ON the UK show last year when the numbers took a dip, and it seems as though the ratings have risen since she's been added to the panel!

Perhaps now that the UK summer of SPORTS is winding down, the viewership will start to increase!

Fingers crossed, anyway — at least for Nicole's sake!

What do U think?? Would U prefer Mel B to Nicole on the judges panel??

    The genre is a dying horse that keeps getting beat. Just because Nicole is beautiful but has zero personality or charisma doesn't mean the low rating is her fault alone.

    NO WAY! Mel B is on the judging panel of the Australian version of X Factor and we love having her Down Under. She also hosts our Dancing with the Stars. She recently told press she is applying for Australian citizenship, so she ain't going nowhere!

    It's not all down to her of course, but they need to take drastic action and she's just not sensational enough to create a buzz. Same goes with Leona who guest judged - they're both amazing vocalists but they're not cut out to be judges. They need to show more auditions too - The auditions have all finished now but it feels like we've only seen about 12 acts. Too much time spent with sob stories, them walking to & from the stage and their background stories. That could all be saved for the finalists that actually make the cut.

    Kelly needs to be back on the show! That panel is weak!
    Louis, Kelly, Nicole and Gary could be a nice team on X-Factor UK.

    i hope nicole stays i really like her on the show she is one of the reasons i watch the show,i really don't think mel b i right. i will honestly forever hate simon cowell if he kickes her off again.

    Re: Felipe – I totally agree.. Tulisa is the person that is the weakest link on the panel. She needs to go. She's become extremely annoying and has become a bit of a know all.

  7. Mandy L. says – reply to this


    The reason that the ratings are down are purely due to Simon cowell no longer being on the judging panel. His opinion was the only one that the singers cared for or audiences, even though Gary Barlow is great, it's just not the same. I much prefer Nicole to Mel B as she had got actual talent, however I think the only cut worth making is to get rid of Louis Walsh!

    No, the reasons ratings are down is because the show is BAD. And Nicole has barely been in the show so far this season so blaming her makes no sense

    She isn't a very nice person & that probably doesn't help. She was quite snotty to many of the contestants & their people, some of who professed to be fans of hers & quite kind, here in the US on X. So maybe if she were as pretty in the personality department as she is in the looks dept. she'd quit getting the axe. No one wants to work with a bitch.

    Why should Nicole get the axe? She was brilliant on UK X Factor when she put together One Direction and she's hardly been seen on X Factor this season. I think Tulisa should go, she appears to be the weakest one on the panel. Nicole is a lovely woman and people are so mean about her. She took over from Cheryl Cole and was a breath of fresh air. No Tulisa and preferably no Cheryl Cole.

    I really hope they keep Nicole. I think that she was the best mentor (yes, mentor, not judge) on the us version. I don't watch the uk version but I think she's excellent at mentoring and should be kept around.
