SHOCKING NEWS.

In what will surely rock the world of exactly one housewife in Minnesota and literally nobody else, Nicole Scherzinger was unexpectedly ousted from her position as judge on US X Factor this evening.

From E! Online:

“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.

Apart from ruining that one little girl’s entire life in front of national television, Miss Scherzy Baby did herself no favors during the first season of US X Factor–crying at least three times per show, offering unintelligible criticism, and displaying great acts of modesty at all times, resulting in the unofficial title of “Least Adored Reality TV Judge Ever.”

Scherzy is now going away to some place to “work on her music,”–so I’ve come up with 5 better options for filling her seat as a judge. Well, and also as host! Because Steve Jones is gone too. EDIT: Oh, and apparently Paula Abdul now too.

I’ve put a lot of thought into this list, so please…let me know what you think!
