Nicole with one of her finalists Jahmene

For a second time in as many years, a beautiful American judge wants to leave X Factor.

Nicole Scherzinger told The Sun that she wants to concentrate on her music career once the show ends this weekend, saying

I’m really glad I did the show. I don’t know if I’ll come back next year. End on a high, right?

Nicole who originally took over from US singer Kelly Rowland has TWO finalists this year, the first judge to ever have two of her acts go through to the live final.

American Judges: Nicole Scherzinger replaced Kelly Rowland

So who will take over Nicole’s spot?

Well Labrinth looked good in the chair before he performed on the X Factor this year, maybe he could put all that jive talk about X Factor behind him and give it a go.

Or maybe another American will replace Nicole?

Who knows… but I’m betting there will be more than one seat available.

Who would you want to see in the judge’s seats next year? Leave a comment and let us know…
