Looks like as one door opens for Cheryl Cole, another one closes for Nicole Scherzinger - although it seems it is her that is closing it, and not Simon Cowell. It's been reported that the singer will leave her role as judge on the talent show to focus on her singing career.

Poor Nicole is said to be devastated over the decision. A source told The Sun - “It breaks her heart, but Nicole is sad not to be able to go back to the show this year. She put her music career on hold last year but now she has to focus on her music.”

Yeah.. not going to lie, this is pretty Schermazing news in a lot of ways. As fantabulous as the lady is, she was starting to grate with all her crocodile tears and sabotage of the English language by putting a 'Scher' in whenever possible. So yeah, see ya later Nic. Now, where's that Cheryl lady?
