Paula Abdul Not Returning to 'X Factor'?

Paula Abdul is reportedly exiting the X Factor, Deadline reports.

News of the 49-year-old entertainer’s leaving the show comes after today’s string of X Factor losses.

Earlier in the day, host Steve Jones tweeted he would not be returning to the hit reality show. Judge Nicole Scherzinger has also apparently thrown in the towel.

A Simon Cowell insider has reported to Deadline that Paula will now be leaving too.

    Simon will bring the british girl Cheryl Cole. He might bring Brit X-Factor hosts Ant and Deck? Shania Twain for another judge???? Yummy …. She’s not singing/touring now.

    No one, they should just cancel the show, along with Idol and The Voice and while they’re at it, cancell the kardashions too!!

    Personally, I am glad Paula left XFactor. I gave up on that show after the judges behavior got out of control and Simon’s ego got the best of him. This is not a hit show as it had low ratings. Let’s see… only the two male judges left and the host not returning. I guess Simon didn’t like anyone disagreeing with him. The host wasn’t the problem. It was all the hoopla and over dramatics. I will not watch the show again. I wish Paula well and hope it was her decision to leave not Simon’s.

    I think Simon should bring in new judges each season so the fans can threaten them to die as well… There are some sick psychotic fans out there. hahahaha


    LMAO! Is that the same Lisa from Dailymail? Who lives in New Jersey? Who also just posted under “Emma”? You write the same way on EVERY article! Do you have Nicole Scherzinger on google alert or something? Talk about obsessiveness! I thought you were a Cheryl Cole fan? Why you stalking Nicole? She wasn’t fired-she quite, she said she was leaving weeks ago in an interview.


    Hey LISA try getting a LIFE! You’re PATHETIC and OBSESSIVES! Seek HELP! I await your comments on DAILYMAIL tomorrow so I can REPORT them and have them DELETED! You WEIRDO!

    The X Factor is Better than Idol, I love Paula!
    Idol is boring, Randy is lame , jlo and the old lady just use the show for self promotion

  • James

    I don’t like the format of that show. I don’t like how the judges eliminate people in order to screw over the other judges. I want the best singers to win.

  • SS

    Bring back Paula, Simon and Randy for American Idol. Those were the glory days!

  • icefire

    it’s a sinking ship, i mean all the singing competitions

  • KLV

    Steve Jones and Nicole Sherzinger pretend they are leaving by their own choice but the truth is they were both FIRED! First Steve then Nicole. They were highly unpopular with the audience.

  • Anon

    I can’t believe they are doing another season. The show sucked!

  • AI

    American Idol is still the Number One show and will continue to be .
    Steven and Jennifer made it even better.
