I wasn't really a fan of Cheryl Cole. I didn't even know who she was until I started watching X-Factor US.
I guess if she was on more episodes I would change my opinion. I suppose it's not really fair to judge her since she was only on the first couple episodes. She seemed really kind, and not an airhead like Nicole. I liked Nicole, though, but I'm not really surprise she's getting the boot. She shouldn't be a judge. Steve was great to look at, and the accent was an even bigger plus, but he was sooooo boring. I'm not surprised about him either. Paula, on the other hand, should NOT be booted. I know she has to be pissed. They basically used her as an advertisement to get people to watch the show, due to her returning on TV with Simon Cowell, and now that the show didn't do as good as Simon expected he's booting her? What an ass.
They better be getting some big names to judge or I won't be watching anymore.
