With writers referring to Monday night's x factor shakeup variously as a bloodbath, an X-orcism, an implosion, and a massacre, it appeared that the host and one or two judges had been fired from Simon Cowell's talent contest. According to several published reports, Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones were fired. Other reports included Paula Abdul as one of the pinkslipped. quoted an unnamed source close to the show as saying, "They survived this year, but it didn't really work. So they've figured they have an opportunity to fix it." Jones confirmed his ouster on Twitter "I wont be hosting next seasons X Factor which is a shame, but I CANT complain as I've had a great time," he said. Fox has confirmed the Scherzinger/Jones exit but has declined to comment on reports that Abdul is also out. However a source told the Hollywood Reporter that Abdul's continued participation was regarded as "irrelevant to the mix." The comment was not explained.
