The players in the late January firing spree at “The X Factor” are now starting to speak up. First it was FOX executive Mike Darnell. Then Simon Cowell explained his side of the story. And now the recently ousted Nicole Scherzinger is talking about her thoughts.
In an interview with “Access Hollywood” Scherzinger says, “What happened? Well, all I know is that I gave 110 percent to that show…I know everybody’s talking about it, they’re saying good, bad, they love me or hate me, but the one thing you can’t say is that I didn’t give it my all.”
Scherzinger offered nothing but praise for her co-workers on the singing competition.
“I had a wonderful experience on the show,” she says. “I loved being a part of my ‘X Factor’ family. Nothing could obviously prepare me for everything I had to go through, all the emotions and stuff, but I have no regrets.”
Scherzinger’s departure seemed all but certain as Season 1 of the series wound down. Her chemistry with the other judges lacked and the venom stemming from the Rachel Crow fiasco seemed to take her by surprise.
But in the end, Scherzinger was nothing but class.
“I’ve always believed in never looking back and just moving forward and I’ve got an amazing year to look forward to,” she says.
