Nicole Scherzinger

Paula Told Me

to Vote Off Rachel Crow

12/12/2011 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



"X-Factor" judge Paula Abdul secretly instructed Nicole Scherzinger to vote off Rachel Crow last week ... just moments before the earth-shattering elimination -- and we have proof.

Paula's mic was down when Nicole was making her decision -- but with a little volume tinkering ... you can clearly hear Paula whisper to Nicole, "Just let it go to a deadlock."

Nicole did just that ... a decision that sent Rachel Crow packing -- and resulted in a torrent of death threats from angry fans everywhere.

Everyone's blaming Nicole, but the audio raises the question -- is Nicole really at fault for sending Rachel home? So we gotta ask ...

At the end of the day, Nicole cast her vote for Rachel, so yes, it's Nicole's fault.

nicole should have voted who she wanted out. Considering for the 3rd week IN A ROW, Marcus was there, it should have been obvious.

all are talented, and all will do something, but Rachel should have stayed over MArcus. Granted, Rachel won't win it all.

She actually whispered..."I'd do the one in dreadlocks".

IF Paula would have told her to jumP off a bridge would she have done that? So yes, idiot, she has a mind and could have made her own decision so if she disagreed she should have spoken up and voted with HER OWN MIND. Get real.

Nicole is more of a bleating sheep than Paula, apparently.

It was up to Nicole, She is a adult and can make up her own mind. If she can't do her job she needs to find another one

Its neither one of their faults. It was left up to the people, and the people made their choice. If their is anybody to be blamed, its the voters.

lol If you can't handle being a judge then you shouldn't have done the show. You can't just throw her under the bus you can make decisions your self.

Paula was trying to avoid another series od death threats. TMZ are doing their best to create a storm of more death threats. What gives? Let it rest!

The dumbing down of American television. People don'*****ch this crap because it's interesting...they watch it because there's nothing else on.

Apparently these stupid shows need to be canceled if there are death threats, judges who can't decide who to pick, and a little fat kid who can't handle losing. America is filled with cry babies now. What happened to you win some and lose some. Buck up you ******* ninnies.

Well, now that I've seen Rachel's reaction and her temper tantrum, I'm glad she's gone. Let her go to Disney where she belongs. Of course she's a talented kid, but her "8 yr. old" little girl vibe bouncing all over the stage was giving me cavities. I wish her all the best, just not for an adult audience.
And chill Nicole, your drama is overkill as is the reaction of psycho fans. They are not 'death threats', it's just a figure of speech bored teens use on the internet. Must be a slow new day guys.
