Released by Miss TV Girl
Deadline.com is reporting that "The X Factor has fired Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones. Now I am not a fan of the show, but I am really surprised by the 123 punch firing. There have been rumbling from day one regarding the robotic Steve Jones and his unlikely return for season two.
Now don't get me wrong, Nicole Scherzinger was at times very uncomfortable to watch and seemed out of her element, which is interesting considering she is such a gifted performer. So, I guess her firing isn't that much of a surprise. I am also still not sure if Scherzinger didn't suffer a mini nervous breakdown when she voted off "Rachel Crow".
Paula Abdul is the one surprise here, considering her long history with Simon Cowell. However , Abdul in my opinion never should have been hired to judge to begin with, considering her inability to judge. For the life of me I don't get the appeal. The whole loopy personality thing isn't cute its so what sad.
So, I guess having an opinion(good or bad) and not being afraid to share paid off for L.A. Reid, since he is the only one besides Cowell left with a seat at the table..
