Simon Cowell has fired the X Factor judges Nicole Schezniger, Paula Abdul and host Steve Jones. This just leaves LA Reid and Simon himself as the judges. While the firing of Steve Jones and Nicole Schezinger was expected, fans are shocked to hear that Paula Abdul was also fired.
Paula is said to be furious over this decision and stated she understands “how business decisions oftentimes override personal considerations.”
Rumors are that Simon may hire Maria Carey as one of the judges as he originally wanted to do, but Maria Carey’s pregnancy did not allow her to accept the job. Simon is trying to get other superpowers for the position. Another candidate is Beyonce.
