The X Factor will look pretty different next season, because Steve Jones, Nicole Scherzinger, and Paula Abdul are all leaving.
First, Steve announced he wasn't coming back. Then we found out that Nicole's contract was not renewed...apparently because Simon "wants to take the show in a different direction." When Paula heard that, she was out too.
There's no news yet about other judge L.A. Reid, so we'll see about that.
And the producer of American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance Nigel Lythgoe said "Shocked to see Simon has fired Paula Abdul, Nicole and Steve from the X Factor."
So did they quit, or were they fire" Sounds like there are a few different stories going around!
Are you sad to see Paula, Nicole, and Steve go?
