Yet again, dissimilar duo Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell has parted ways. This time, the splitting occured on American Idol’s lesser successful competition, The X Factor. Paula is joined by host Steve Jones and Nicole Scherzinger.
Simon says, “I want to say a massive thank you to Paula, Nicole and Steve for being part of The X Factor last year.”
Although Jones never developed any type of connection with the audience, and Scherzinger bickered with Cowell throughout the bulk of the season, Simon wishes them well. He even says he and his “very close friend” Paula would work together again in the near future.
Paula confirms her exit from the show and “have absolute understanding” that she was fired because of a business decision.
It seems L.A. Reid has a firm seat on the panel. Apparently the show’s producers enjoy the cat fights between the music honchos.
I say fill the empty seats with Patti Labelle and Mariah Carey, with Ciara serving as the host. Epic!
Are you glad to see Steve, Nicole and Paula go?
