Hi there, you're back at ClevverMusic with me, Bridget Daly. Well just call it the AXE factor! More news of firings today—not only is Nicole Scherzinger getting the boot off the X Factor, but word on the street is Paula Abdul is out too! The Hollywood Reporter claims Simon Cowell has been holding production meetings to assess what went wrong on season 1 of the show in the US, and one of the major points brought up was that Paula's role on the show was quote "irrelevant to the mix." Harsh!

As for Nicole, she was deemed unfit for the show because of how emotional she became with certain contestants, and apparently Simon wants a bigger celebrity to fill her spot next season. We've heard whispers about Mariah Carey getting hired, but that's just a rumor at this point. Also axed is host Steve Jones, and there's been no clear cut information on that decision. The only safe ones are the guys! Simon obviously, as well as LA Reid. So what do you think about all these changes, and who would you like to see replace Paula, Nicole and Steve? Let us know below in the comments section, and sub ClevverMusic for more news every day. Thanks for watching.
