Nicole was vilified for her inability to make a vote, and now she’s speaking out about her controversial choice!
When Rachel Crow was eliminated from the Dec. 8 episode of The X Factor, fans were outraged that Nicole Scherzinger allowed the vote to come down to deadlock. But now Nicole’s saying that she stands behind her decision!
Nicole, 33, said in a press conference after the show that she wouldn’t change her vote.
“If I were to do it all over again, I would have done the same thing,” she said. “Because how did I know what America was going to do? Anyone can see that I didn’t send Rachel home — don’t get it twisted. I didn’t send her home and I wasn’t going to send either of them home. I have a big heart and I care and I care so much.”
Even so, her new year’s resolution is that 14-year-old Rachel has incredible success, she tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Make sure Rachel Crow makes it on the biggest show ever,” she said.
