X Factor firing frenzy, Steve Jones, Nicole Scherzinger & Paula Abdul get booted. X Factor gets rid of Steve Jones, Nicole Scherzinger & Paula Abdul. Get ready for a whole new X Factor next season, as the only two left are Simon Cowell and L.A Reed.

We’ve already reported that Simon admitted to being cocky about his new show, and we know his love-life is on the outs, but was it necessary to kick off everyone? Click the jump for the details.

“I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show,” Steve tweeted  on Jan. 30.

Right after we learned that news, E! Online put up a story citing sources who said Nicole Scherzinger isn’t coming back for season two either. “She wants to focus on her music career,” a source said. “She’s spoken to Simon [Cowell] and he’s given her his blessing.”

Though still unconfirmed by FOX, Deadline.com is reporting that Paula Abdul is also exiting the show.
