It looks like the pressure of being "The X Factor (US)" judge has taken its toll for Nicole Scherzinger. The determining judge for the fate of Rachel Crow on Wednesday, December 8 night episode, Scherzinger could not help but to cry for the next 30 minutes after it was announced that Crow was going home.
What viewers watched on television was Scherzinger choosing a "Deadlock" in the final vote between Crow and Marcus Canty. When the young girl was eventually sent home based on America's votes, both Crow and Scherzinger broke down in emotional tears. The singer judge even turned down the chance to comment about Crow on stage.
TMZ said that Scherzinger continued to cry even after the cameras stopped rolling. Once she got booed by the audience for causing the elimination of Crow, she went straight to her dressing room and cried hysterically for nearly half an hour. It took Crow's visit and consolation to her room to stop her from tearing up. They both cried in her room but Crow told Scherzinger that she was not mad about the decision.
Scherzinger and fellow judge Paula Abdul had received death threats last week for voting off Drew Ryniewicz.
