Nicole Scherzinger

The Backstage Cry Sesh --

Caught on Tape

12/9/2011 1:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rachel Crow and Nicole Scherzinger on X Factor

"X-Factor" judge Nicole Scherzinger claimed she "died inside" when she saw the look on Rachel Crow's face last night ... after the 13-year-old was eliminated -- and TMZ has obtained footage of the emotional backstage meltdown.

Nicole told producers after the show, half in denial -- "I couldn't make that decision on my own ... I didn't send her home. I adore Rachel."

Between tears, Nicole added, "When I saw Rachel's look on her face, I just died inside."

She completely SUCKED!! The show shouldn't have kids or there should be a show that features only kids. No one is ever honest about their talent, yet they trash adult performers.

This show is a complete mess.. the judges are bickering divas who are only concerned about their airtime and NOT about who the best singer is... i stopped voting 3 weeks ago when it was apparent our votes didnt matter because the judges have their own agenda... i stopped watching it 2 weeks ago and i dont care who wins because it wont be the best talent...
