Judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, as well as host Steve Jones, have parted ways with The X Factor, The Wrap reports.
One source said, "They expected Paula to be the goofy girl, and Nicole to be the pretty one. But Paula was so bad that it made none of it work."
Steve announced his departure first, tweeting yesterday, "I wont be hosting next season's X Factor, which is a shame, but I can't complain as I've had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show."
Nicole, a onetime member of the Pussycat Dolls, has bowed out of the show to focus on her music career. A source tells E! News, "She's spoken to Simon [Cowell] and he's given her his blessing."
