‘The X Factor’ Announces Shocking Changes

Some shocking changes have come out of Fox’s competition series The X Factor. According to reports from both Deadline and TV Line, Judges Paula Abdul, and Nicole Scherzinger, as well as host Steve Jones, have all decided to leave the Fox series behind.

Sharing the news via Twitter, Steve Jones made the announcement this past Monday night to fans regarding his decision to leave. “I won’t be hosting next season’s ‘X Factor’ which is a shame, but I can’t complain as I’ve had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show.” Shortly thereafter Nicole Scherzinger’s exit from the ‘The X Factor’ was also making headlines. She reportedly will be leaving with Simon Cowell’s blessing.

Meanwhile Paula Abdul, whose departure hasn’t been officially announced by Fox as of late, comes as one of the biggest shockers. Just last year Simon Cowell complimented Abdul, sharing that he enjoyed working with her. “Always loved working with her even though she can be a pain. I don’t know what it is about her, but I’ve always clicked with her. You just have to get that chemistry, and she’s right. I’ve never found anyone better than her.”

Apparently things have changed. Replacements for the trio have yet to be announced. Tell us what you think about this surprising X Factor shakeup below.
