Mediamyxx:Simon Cowell pulls the plug on X Factor cast

Simon Cowell did his spring cleaning in winter as he fired the X-factor cast minus LA Reid. Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, and host Steve Jones all got the boot yesterday and the opinionated Brit cleaned house. While ratings were good for the US version of the show it wasn’t the smash hit the TV giant had hoped for. Scherzinger came under fire this year when cutie pie Rachel wasn’t saved by her and sent home crying so her departure wasn’t a huge surprise but long time friend Abdul was a shocker. We can’t wait to see what Simon has up his sleeve for season 2. Read about the untimely firings here: and tell us what you think in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri
