Simon Cowell has said that he was going to clean house on the American version of The X Factor and today we found out he wasn’t kidding. News first broke that something big was happening when host Steve Jones
Tweeted, “I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show.” Then E!
reported that Nicole Scherzinger was also out to focus on “her music career.” Those two departures made sense, but then word came from another E!
reporter that Paula Abdul will also not be returning to the Fox winter singing show. The Wrap
is claiming that all three were fired from the show leaving just show creator Simon Cowell and the Randy Jackson clone LA Reid.
Like I said I get getting rid of Steve Jones who was not the right fit as a host for a competition show and Nicole Scherzinger who was useless as a judge, but Paula Abdul was the best thing Simon had going for the show besides himself. I also don’t get why he kept LA Reid over Paula because he is not likable.
Personally I think Fox should cancel the show and make Simon go back to American Idol because that is the only way I would watch both shows.
