Will Nicole Eat Crow For Rachel's Exit From X-Factor?
Nicole Scherzinger has sung for the Pussycat Dolls, Danced With the Stars, and she is currently a judge on Fox's singing competition 'The X-Factor'. But, she is the one that should have gone home tonight after she was clearly afraid to make a professional decision on Rachel Crow's performance, leaving the result to 'America' instead.
The wimpy judge refused to 'man up' when it counted, and the better act (Rachel) in the sing-off was sent home, while perennial bottom two contestant, Marcus Canty, went through to the semi-finals.
This reporter is lost as to the meaning of the 'Sing-Off', which is supposed to determine which performer of the bottom two should go home. Clearly, in this case, Rachel was the better performer, but LA Reid simply votes for his own man, and Nicole refused to cast the correct vote that would have sent Rachel through to the final four.
So 'Magical Marcus' lives to sing another day, while the cute, adorable, funny and talented Rachel is voted off the show by the public.
As the first season of X-Factor USA draws to a close, perhaps 'judge' Nicole should apply for a position on 'Survivor Antarctica' next fall...
Even our dog, Porsche, and our cat, Tornado, were distraught by this foolish decision on tonight's show!
