AMP Music Minute: Simon Cowell Gives ‘X’ Cast The Ax And More!
Simon Cowell cleaned house on The X Factor. He fired host, Steve Jones and judges Nicole Scherzinger and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Paula Abdul[/lastfm]. We could go on with jokes of Brian Dunkleman, but that seems too mean. We just wonder how awkward it’s going to be at Simon and Paula’s pool parties, now that he’s given her the ax.

As for L.A. Reid, he still has his job for now, but if he can’t pull in the audience in one season, he better prepare for the high seas as well because Captain Cowell is one mean mother-shut yo’mouth!
Rumors have been swirling about Mariah Carey joining the show, which seem more validated now that it’s clear the show is going through a major overhaul.
There is no word on who will be in to replace the host and other judges but we will let you know as soon as we do!
Maybe Scherzy can use this time to work on her own music? Just an idea! AMP out.
