Aaaw, say it ain’t so. It seems the show that found its way into our hearts after just one season is making some very huge changes. It has been confirmed that Host, Steve Jones, Judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul will not be returning for the second season of the X Factor.

Jones recently took to his twitter account to confirm the rumors about him leaving the show:




I won’t be hosting next seasons X Factor which is a shame but I can’t complain as I’ve had a great time,” Jones writes. “Good luck to everyone on the show.”

Jones’ manager also says ” It’s totally amicable. Steve loved doing the show and loved the cast and crew, Fremantle and Fox. Wishes everyone well. This is just the  beginning”


It is sad to see Jones go, but we gotta admit, the dude’s no Ryan Seacrest.

As for singer Nicole Scherzinger, apparently she has decided to focus on her singing career. Seems like the show has been taking too much of her time as it was revealed that she worked on X Factor six days a week.
Simon Cowell also made it known that he would not be needing long time friend, Paula Abdul on the show any longer. He revealed that he wants to take the show to another direction.

It looks like the only familiar faces we would get to see next season would be that of Simon and L.A Reid. Let’s just hope that these changes are for the better.
