X Factor Feud

Forget Paula Abdul! Simon Cowell has new prey in town and he’s out to destroy Nicole Scherzinger!

Judging from the way Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger treated one another on the first live show of The X Factor Oct. 26, there’s more going on there than just friendly rivalry. The two judges were at each other’s throats the whole night, criticizing every minor thing. HollywoodLife.com chatted with Nicole, 33, after the show and got her surprising take on the feud.

“I don’t want it to continue,” the former Pussycat Doll singer told us exclusively. “I guess he felt very strong about the choices I made with my contestants. But I feel very strong, I know the work that I put into it and I am passionate about the time we have spent together and witnessed the passion and growth they have had, so it’s all right.”

She added, “That is what he does best, but I am confident with the choices I have made.”

Simon was quick to critique everything from Nicole’s song choices, to her styling and her arrangements. However, Nicole got right back in his face, calling his performers “predictable” and over the top.

Who do YOU side with in the battle of Nicole versus Simon? Sound off below!

I think that Nicole is the most qualified to be the judge out of the 4 judges because she can sing, dance, act, write music, play musical instruments, was a former contestant herself who was one of the winners out of thousands, won in Dancing With The Stars, record produce, host, judge and entertain etc. She knows the in’s and out’s of the music industry and Simon is a little insecure of that. Simon is also a bully and he will bully anyone especially women.
