Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul to Exit X Factor USA


Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul both have confirmed that they will no longer be returning to The X Factor for a second year, according to news from international sites. In a major housecleaning, the creator and lead judge Simon Cowell decided to boot half of the judging quartet from Fox’s singing show. Nicole Scherzinger likewise show the door. Paula Abdul’s, even after it was reported by multiple media outlets; neither Cowell nor a rep replied to messages Monday night.

Apparently, the two popular judges – including host Steve Jones – were given the boot by head honcho Simon Cowell, with network Fox confirming the news earlier this week. Nicole remained silent when the news broke, but has now confirmed that she will not be returning to the talent contest and will instead focus on her music career.

“I wanted to let you know directly from me that it’s true I won’t be returning to ‘The X Factor‘. Looking forward to an exciting year ahead and making great music and more! I’m grateful for the love you always give me,” she wrote on her Twitter page.

Meanwhile, Paula also confirmed the news, tweeting: “Yes, it’s true; I won’t be returning to The X Factor next season. I want nothing more than for The X Factor to exceed ALL of their wildest dreams. This truly has been a blessing and I am most grateful.”
