After the ‘X Factor USA’ bloodbath of firings last week, Simon Cowell is planning on doing it to his ‘X Factor UK’, and he’s determined to get axed Cheryl Cole back. Meanwhile, Cole’s got different plans and Simon’s not in any of them.
Even after we reported that Cheryl Cole and Will.i.am are slapping Simon Cowell by having her perform on competitor show ‘The Voice‘, he still thinks she’ll come back and he’ll have her.
After axing Cole on ‘X Factor USA‘, Cowell admitted he had “got it wrong”, and in recent weeks has said that he would like to see the star back on the show’s judging panel. After firing the judge (Nicole Scherzinger) who replaced the axed Cole, he now wants the original one back, but she’s said publicly that he can ‘get lost‘. Cole’s manager, Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am already stated that Cole didn’t need to perform or take any part on ‘X Factor UK’, which seems to have driven Cowell to want the singer back more. As we all know how men are, they usually don’t appreciate you until they’ve bumped you off and then you don’t want anything else to do with them. Then the challenge is laid, and they’ll do whatever it takes to get you back. Cowell seems to be falling into that area too.
Just last week when Cowell was asked about Cole returning to the fold he said, “For sure, if she wanted to – 100%. I think she probably misses me.” That comment led Cole to reply for him to ‘get lost‘.
Now all the ‘X Factor UK’ judges are on edge after they saw what happened to the ‘X Factor USA’ judges, and Louis Walsh is looking to be heading out the door very soon. Kelly Rowland is already out so it’s looking like at least one more judge will be sacked. Last month, the mogul said the UK panel of Kelly, Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos had not been bold enough which is rather similar to what he said of the US version. And we saw that comment led to Steve Jones, Nicole Scherzinger and fan favorite Paula Abdul being fired one right after the other which sent shockwaves through Hollywood.
