Nicole Scherzinger

30-Minute Crying Session

After 'X Factor' Elimination

12/9/2011 8:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Scherzinger ran off the set of 'X Factor' in tears last night ... when the audience booed her like crazy for eliminating Rachel Crow ... and TMZ has learned she was hysterically crying in her dressing room for nearly a half-hour.

Nicole was charged with casting the final vote between Crow and Marcus Canty ... but didn't want to eliminate either .. so she sent the vote to "Deadlock" -- which meant it all boiled down to the audience vote.

Crow lost ... and broke down in tears ... and when the host of the show asked Nicole to comment, the crowd unleashed a chorus of boos.



Sources connected to the production tell TMZ ... Nicole bolted right for her dressing room ... and was "inconsolable" about the situation.

We're told Crow -- who was a crying mess herself -- heard about Nicole and went to the judge's dressing room ... where the two cried together and Crow told Nicole she was not mad about the decision.

It's been a rough couple of weeks for Scherzinger -- as TMZ first reported, she had already been getting death threats and hate mail for voting Drew Ryniewicz off the show last week.

What Nicole did was imature and wrong, I could see her not being able to decide if both permormances were outstanding, ANYONE could see that Rachel out did the other guy 100%, any idiot could see that. So Nicole left it in the hands of the people when in FACT SHE is the professional... come on!! if you cant do your job, move on.

Nicole has far less talent than rachel crow does. Nicole does not need to be a judge. Rachel won't win because she is so young but all others but melanie suck. NICOLE-- IF YOU ARE READING THIS---------> GET A NEW CAREER! NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR YOU AGAIN!!!! at least I don't.

for the love of god, parents, do you all still NOT get it?! telling your kids they're perfect only sets them up for moments like this...that girl yelling to her mom, 'mommy, you PROMISED me!!' says it all--this generation of kids are even worse than the last, they're entitled, whiny, self-absorbed brats who think they were born perfect and freak out when the real world sends them into reality...nicole was made to feel horrible for doing the right thing. for the rest of the world, please rid us of these awful kids!!!

That's Gen-Y right there, to a tee. The USA might collapse in a few years, and its young citizens will be cry and shout 'you promised me!'

The US can finally stop "anticipating" her album, now that Interscope has full cover to cancel its USA release. That's what she was crying about. Nicole's sole reason for being on the show was to prove she could connect to US audiences without the PCD brand supporting her. She failed.

This stunt was so obviously staged - what a better way to raise poor ratings. But, it backfired. The show sucks more than ever now.
