Paula, Nicole, Steve Are All Out at X Factor
Let the bloodbath begin. X Factor host Steve Jones, along with judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul are reportedly not returning to the show next season.
A lot of people had their suspicions that Steve and Nicole might not be making a return, but I don’t think anyone expected Paula to be on the list as well.
Steve took to Twitter to confirm his exit. “I wont [sic] be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time,” he tweeted. “Good luck to everyone on the show.”
Reports are saying Nicole is leaving so she can focus on her music, but reports say she didn’t have much of an option. Nor did Paula, apparently. Deadline Hollywood says “I understand from sources that none of the three left on their own accord and that it was cleaning house day at the so-so rated reality series.”
Fox has confirmed both Steve and Nicole’s exits.
but so far there hasn’t been a confirmation on Paula. Paula’s departure was confirmed by Simon Cowell as well.
Are you surprised about the exits?
