Even though it’s safe to say that Nicole Scherzinger won’t be coming back for another year of The X Factor since let’s face it, she completely blows at her job, it looks like the whole debacle involving her eliminating Rachel Crow (who I’m entirely convinced was a genetic experiment to create the most tragidorable child to ever exist) was all Paula Abdul‘s fault according to TMZ.
X Factor judge Paula Abdul secretly instructed Nicole Scherzinger to vote off Rachel Crow last week … just moments before the earth-shattering elimination — and we have proof. Paula’s mic was down when Nicole was making her decision — but with a little volume tinkering … you can clearly hear Paula whisper to Nicole, “Just let it go to a deadlock.” Nicole did just that … a decision that sent Rachel Crow packing — and resulted in a torrent of death threats from angry fans everywhere.
So normally, I’d go ahead and blame this squarely on Paula, but let’s try and think rationally here for a second: who in their right mind takes Paula’s opinion seriously? Let me put it this way: this is her on a morning talk show, where she claims to be 100% sober. Now watch her being 100% completely sober and tell me whether or not you would take her input seriously in a heated decision.
