Jimmy told Paula that her ‘X Factor’ artists deserved to be sent home and it offended her so badly that she stormed off stage — who do you think went too far?

Paula Abdul can’t take a joke! The X Factor judge along with Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, and LA Reid appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Dec. 13 and it was totally awkward! Jimmy gave the judges a hard time about last week’s emotional episode when 13-year-old Rachel Crow was sent home in a very reluctant voting deadlock!

But when Jimmy told Paula that basically her choices of artists on X Factor had the least talent, she stormed off. We would have too! She laughed and ended up coming back and sitting on Simon’s lap. Jimmy proceeded to joke about her sexual chemistry with Simon, where they both denied ever sleeping together. It was such a strange moment and Simon even joked that the interview was “incredibly awkward!”
