Boy — Jimmy Kimmel didn’t mince words when he had all four X Factor judges: Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, Simon Cowell and L A Reid on his couch last night, Dec 12. Here’s what he ranted about Rachel and what both Nicole and Simon confessed!
Jimmy — you couldn’t have said it better– it was ” a travesty” to kick Rachel Crow off X Factor last week. She was “remarkably more talented” than the contestant she was up against- Marcus Canty — he insisted, while Nicole and Paula squirmed.
He even called ” America stupid” for voting more heavily for Marcus. ” In the moment and under pressure it’s not easy to just send someone home”, Nicole whined under Jimmy’s pressured questioning. ” But it’s all fine for Rachel now, ” Nicole insisted. ” I think she has a deal with Disney.”
Well, we’re very glad to hear Nicole talking about Rachel’s Disney deal because Hollywoodlife.com has been exclusively reporting that Disney is anxious to make a deal with Rachel, for her to eventually get her own show on their network.
Fascinatingly, Mr ( Usually) Nasty, Simon Cowell, like the Grinch, appears to have grown a heart with this season’s X Factor. When Jimmy replayed the video of Rachel hearing that she was voted off the show and collapsing to her knees in tears, Simon admitted that ” it was even worst than I remember.” And yup, it was! Remember that Nicole and Paula.
And guys- stop complaining about having to do your extremely well-paid jobs! Nicole- I can assure you that many people would be happy to step in and have to make the tough decisions you’re afraid of!
Thanks for giving all the judges a bit of a hard time, Jimmy!
