It’s not only the contestants who apparently get eliminated on The X Factor. Judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, along with host Steve Jones, will not be returning for the show’s second season. Read on for details about the triple elimination…all announced in a single day!
Steve Jones was the first to confirm his departure. He tweeted yesterday,”I wont be hosting next season’s X Factor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show.”
The former Pussycat Doll is currently rehearsing for her upcoming European tour, which kicks off next month.
“X Factor took a lot more of her time than she ever expected,” the source continued. “She didn’t have any time really to work on her music. She was doing X Factor six days a week.”
“She found out today,” says a show source. “At this point, the only ones staying are Simon and L.A. Reid.”
Another source confirmed the news. “Simon wants to take the show in a different direction,” says the insider.
Can you believe that ‘The X Factor’ has eliminated two judges and a host? Who do you think will replace them all?
