Scherzinger, Jones Not Returning To ‘X Factor’

06:01 AM Tuesday 1/31/12 | |

Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones are out at “The X Factor.”

A Fox spokeswoman said Monday that the judge and host will not return for the show’s second season. No other details were provided.

Jones, a British TV personality, called his departure “a shame” on Twitter and added that he couldn’t complain, “as I’ve had a great time.” He gave no reason why he wasn’t returning to the singing contest.

Jones was originally slated to host “X Factor” alongside Scherzinger, who replaced British pop star Cheryl Cole as a judge when executive producer Simon Cowell and other producers had second thoughts about Cole joining the series.

Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid served as the other judges on the show’s first season.

Despite consistent viewership, “X Factor” has failed to achieve popularity similar to “American Idol,” which Cowell left to import “X Factor” from the U.K. to the U.S.

A spokeswoman for Scherzinger did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

    After her demonstration of a total lack of ability as a judge or mentor, it's good to see Nicole Scherzinger tossed off X Factor.    Steve Jones is a good-looking guy but seemed devoid of personality.  Simon would do well to look at his over-the-top show (with canned applause and cheering) and put on a talent show more like American Idol.   He seems to have a total disregard for Americans thinking of us as schlock-driven people    X Factor just isn't anything close to American Idol in it's appeal.    Three judges is plenty too.  Let the public decide which contestant stays or goes
