Simon Cowell & Nicole Scherzinger: 'X Factor' Feud

Simon Cowell & Nicole Scherzinger: 'X Factor' Feud

Check out some highlights from Wednesday night’s X Factor, featuring auditions in Chicago and Seattle.

Josh Krajcik, who works in a burrito restaurant, wowed judges Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger, and Paula Abdul with his soulful rendition of Etta James‘ “At Last,” a performance that scored him four yeses and a ticket to the next round.

J. Mark Inman, a philosophy student, showed off his best moves and somewhat wacky vocals while singing Radiohead‘s “Creep.” But it was Tiah Tolliver‘s audition that brought some drama to the night!

After performing Shontelle‘s “Impossible” a capella, the 19-year-old deli clerk got praise from Simon – “This girl has got something in her, I promise you,” – while Nicole wasn’t convinced.

“If you can’t see this, you’re deaf,” Simon told her, while Paula sided with Nicole. Check out to see if Tiah made it through to the next round!

    I hope they still bring Cheryl Cole in as a guest judge one day as well as Dannii Minogue, Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos from the UK X Factor who can replicate their success in the UK in the US version.

    This incident is not Best Buy’s fault. It’s a shame it happened, but you should have been more aware of your surroundings and not left your laptop in your car when anyone could’ve seen what you were doing. It could’ve happened in any parking lot. Don’t blame the store because you didn’t pay attention.

    I will give Simon some credit because he works with some of my favorite artist but what is this? When he was on American Idol, he was excessively rude and arrogant but he knew good talent and wouldn’t say yes to just anyone but now, he just goes for whoever “fascinates” him. We all get fascinated with people Simon, but that doesn’t mean we should give them a $5 million dollar contract! He needs to take a nap or something too cause throwing things around because someone has a different opinion isn’t the way to go especially for a 51 year old ADULT!

    Nicole was awesome last nigh when she sang!!! I love how goofy she is. I though she’s stuck up until I saw her on last episode. She’s actually really funny and relaxed. Okay, she’s beautiful as well ;)

    @chelsey: Yeah, they should really be concerned about you and your friends not watching… ROTFL
    Other than that, only a tone deaf person could say that girl was “outstanding”. She has an interesting look, sure, bute she was way off key.

    Okay ! That’s people like Paula and Nicole who pisses me off ! The girl can obviously sing she just need to work , and that’s why she’s coming on X Factor , as much as i love Nicole and don’t care about Paula they acted bitchy , especially Nicole she was like ‘ Duhhh i hate her lipstick ” or something so she’s not in , talking about that key thing was bitching to me that girl outsing Katy Perry anyway !!! That’s why i’m gonna stick to the UK version because there no one is acting like a Diva like Paula !

    @Marcy: Actually, it was the store literally at the bottom on my street. NO ONE COULD SEE IN THE CAR, IT WAS TOO DARK IN A BLACK BAG ON THE PASSENGERS SIDE FLOOR…AND THE COP’S TOLD ME THAT IT HAD HAPPENNED TO BEST BUY CUSTOMERS SERVERAL TIMES. THEY SAID… SOMEONE WOULD FOLLOW YOU FROM THE STORE. EVEN THE STORE ADMITTED IT AND OFFERED ME $100.00 OFF MY NEXT LAPTOP. BTW….OBVIOUSLY YOU WORK FOR BEST BUY. HOPE ALOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE LEARN FROM WHAT HAPPENNED TO ME AND STAY AWAY FROM BEST BUY ALSO…FUTURE SHOP IS OWNED BY BEST BUY.

    To be honest XFactor was better with Cheryl Cole. I kinda hate Nicole right now, she is so annoying and self centered!

    Honestly I think we all know why Paula and Nicole didn’t like her and it’s not because of her voice…

    @ValerieQ:
    I couldn’t agree more. Not only did she shout, she shouted off key!

    I’m sorry, but I can’t find anything likable about Nicole. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about her that bugs. I didn’t know much about Cheryl until this show and since then, have looked her up on youtube. I liked her! She’s seems real. She’s beautiful, sweet, has loads of personality and can be opinionated, but not to the point where you want to change the channel. And her accent is adorable. Simon firing her because he didn’t think America would understand is just BS. I mean, come on, I think she’s more coherent than Paula, whom I love. Xfactor missed the ball with that one and b/c of this I hope it fails so that Simon’s ego will get knocked down a peg or two. Is he still engaged to that woman?

    Simon was being a bully. He hired Paula and Nicole because he trusted in their ability to make good decisions. And if he couldn’t respect Paula’s and Nicole’s decisions he should’ve shut up. Apparently, he couldn’t bully his way through L.A. when they disagreed on other auditions. Tiah couldn’t keep her pitch and was singing all over the place. The girl WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH. I was getting tired of Simon and L.A. letting their testerone get out of control. Most of the girl acts that Paula and Nicole said no to deserved it. It was unfair of Simon to cast them as just catty women who were jealous of other women. Their opinions were accurate and true. It’s boring and irritating to watch girls/women who are attractive but have mediocre talent! I suspect some of this was done purely for DRAMA. And I’m sick of hearing about Cheryl Cole. Who cares about another pretty but mediocre talent girl? It’s been months since she left and frankly, I’m glad. She just coudn’t hack it. GO PAULA AND NICOLE!!
