â€œThe X Factorâ€ star Rachel Crowâ€™s shocking, dramatic elimination is still stirring controversy as it is now revealed Paula Abdul instructed fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger to send the two contestants with the lowest votes, Rachel and Marcus Canty, to â€œDeadlockâ€ (see video below).
During the crucial moment of Nicoleâ€™s decision, she turns to Paula who whispered, â€œJust let it go to a deadlock.â€ Paula, you wicked evil creature. So Paula chose to send Marcus home just to make Nicole look like the devil for sending the 13 year-old mini-diva to deadlock. Really?
Of course, Nicole is a grownup who is supposed to be able to make her own decisions, so we canâ€™t blame Paula. Or even Nicole for that matter. If you really want to blame someone, blame yourself for not voting for Rachel.
