There was a massive house cleaning at the X Factor last night, with announcements that host Steve Jones, and judges [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Paula Abdul[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicole Scherzinger[/lastfm] were all ousted. The announcements all came within hours of each other.
Billboard is reporting that the decisions were made during meetings in the UK by show creator Simon Cowell and his creative team who have assembled to determine what went right, and more importantly what went wrong, with the first season of the American edition of the singing competition on FOX.
It appears that LA Reid, the fourth judge on the panel, has not received any notice as to his position, so for the time being, his role on the show is apparently safe.
