Nicole Scherzinger ‘unleashes rant’ at Simon Cowell over X Factor decision

She doesn't seem very happy, does she?

| Updated:

Nicole Scherzinger has reportedly lashed out at Simon Cowell over his failure to decide who’ll be judges on next year’s X Factor.

The former Pussycat Dolls singer has been part of the judging panel on four different series.

But she’s yet to find out if she’ll be returning this year.

Nicole has apparently hit out at Simon’s last-minute tendencies as she sweats over whether she will return as a judge for next year’s show.

She is quoted telling The Mirror: “Simon is so [bleeping] last minute we know in the same month that he announces it.

“We’ll see what happens.”

The 39-year-old was reportedly disappointed during last year’s finale, after being denied the chance to sing with Kevin Davy White, whom she mentored.

She apparently only discovered they couldn’t duet on the eve of the final, and later admitted she was “gutted” by the decision.

One judge who will be hoping Nicole DOES return is Louis Walsh, who gushed to the RadioTimes in December: “Nicole is my favourite female judge ever, she brings so much. I adore her, I love her more than she loves me. Seriously, she’s just the best, she’s amazing.”

Rumours have surfaced that former judge Cheryl could make a sensational return to the hit ITV show.

The singer had taken a break from the limelight while she focused on having baby son Bear with One Direction heart throb Liam Payne.

But she reportedly wants to relaunch her music career, with rumours that she sees the show as a perfect platform.

And she’s gone a long way to helping out by finally finishing her feud with fellow judge Louis.

The pair have been in a war of words for years since the Irishman was manager of Cheryl’s old group Girls Aloud.

But the former Westlife manager told The Sun yesterday: “If Cheryl comes back that’s fine.

“Look, we would agree to disagree on certain things but that’s what makes it good. We all get on.”
