Talk about a major cast change, Nicole Scherzinger will not be coming back to The X Factor next season. OMG!!

According to Eonline Nicole will not be coming back,

“She wants to focus on her music career,” a source said. “She’s spoken to Simon [Cowell] and he’s given her his blessing.”

Scherzinger is currently rehearsing for her upcoming European tour that kicks off next month.

“X Factor took a lot more of her time than she ever expected,” the source said. “She didn’t have any time really to work on her music. She was doing X Factor six days a week.”

Scherzinger’s rep did not immediately comment, but a rep for Fox confirms the news.

And then is exclusively reporting that Paula will not be back either,

Today at The X Factor was a bloodbath which just claimed its biggest name. Not only was host Steve Jones let go and judge Nicole Scherzinger exited from the Fox show, but now a Simon Cowell insider just told me that his longtime friend and American Idol colleague Paula Abdul won’t be returning as an X Factor judge next season. I understand from sources that none of the three left on their own accord and that it was cleaning house day at the so-so rated show.
