The X Factor’s Simon Cowell Blasted For Replacing Cheryl Cole After Last Night’s Premiere

September 22, 2011 08:00 AM by Lisa Princ

It was no secret last night during the series premiere of The X Factor on FOX that Cheryl Cole would only be seen for a short while during the auditions, as she and Simon Cowell had a falling out a few months back. After the premiere last night, television critics are now blasting Simon Cowell for his decision to replace Cheryl Cole, and they were not easy on Nicole Scherzinger! Read on for all the details.

Fans who have been waiting patiently for the premiere of The Factor on Fox got to watch both Cheryl Cole and Nicole Scherzinger on the judging panel last night. Whether you preferred Cheryl or Nicole makes no difference as Cheryl was axed early on in the show and replaced by Nicole Scherzinger, but now television critics are blasting Simon Cowell for that decision, claiming Cheryl Cole was definitely the better judge.

The New York Times said of Cheryl Cole: “Ms Cole showed glimmers of being interesting,” and then added: ”In two seasons as a judge on The Sing Off on NBC, Ms Scherzinger was a pretty face but, judicially speaking, not much more than a seat warmer.” Ouch, that’s got to hurt! But The New York Times was not the only complaint, as The Chicago Tribune also chimed in that: “Scherzinger doesn’t come off as an obvious improvement.”

Wow, those are some harsh comments. Now it’s your turn to sound off – Do you think Cheryl Cole or Nicole Scherzinger is the better judge on The X Factor? Comment and share your thoughts with us!

    Cheryl was way better. I watched 15 minutes of the second half of the show witth nicole and i wont be watching anymore. She’s annoying and has nothing new to say. Cheryl was good cause she has class and is unique….

    Huge mistake axing Cheryl. She’s not just gorgeous to look at, she is also a brilliant judge. The programme lost its charm as soon as Cheryl disappeared.
