Before Nicole Scherzinger was fired from her judging position on X Factor, she and the also-axed Steve Jones were set to appear on the reality competition as dual hosts! Unfortunately, the former Pussycat Doll took over for Cheryl Cole on the judges panel when SHE was also given the boot, and we all know how that turned out!
