There is just one little problem and that is Nicole Scherzinger. Every time she speaks it is as if she is running for office. I believe Paula may of made that comment after one of Nicole's lame attempts at judging a contestant. Paula if you said that I couldn't agree more.
Every nuance, vocal inflection and tear seems calculated and insincere. Every Time she opens her mouth with that politicians cadence I cringe. Well, after last night's episode it appears the world agrees with me.
What happened? Two contestants; both brilliant, were in the bottom two, when this happens both contestants perform for the judges and they proceed to judge the contestants based on that performance.
If you watch the show you know there are other factors the judges will consider. The dynamic of the show calls for each judge to mentor contestants, as a result many judges may be partial to their mentees. Perhaps not the most desirable aspect of the show, but understandable and with a total of four judges, you can rest assured that three judges will vote impartially, well we hope.
Such was the case with last nights show. Both contestants; Rachel Crow and Marcus Canty, were brilliant, however, one out shined the other and had a better track record, that is first time in the bottom two. This was a no-brainier and this is the very reason the Judges decide the fate of the two with the least amount of votes. As we learned with AI, sometimes the best don't always generate enough votes, often due to people assuming they're safe.
Nicole in her over-dramatics refused to exercise this protocol and as a result the best was sent home. At only 13 years of age, Rachel Crow is simply beyond-her-years amazing. Lets have a look at who Nicole sent packing...
Like I said this was a no-brainer. Nicole appears to be more fixated on challenging Simon than giving honest critique of the competition. This is why it's no surprise that Rachel was one of Simon's mentees. My advice to Nicole would be to remember that you are a judge in a competition and not running for office. X-Factor is not a platform for you to outshine the other judges, but to give honest critique of the talent. Simon is not your component or running mate, but rather a fellow judge. Work with Simon and not against him and all will be golden. Or perhaps this ain't your thing and it's time for you to be sent packing.
