‘X Factor’: Nicole Scherzinger Set For Six Chair Challenge Struggle, Leaving Simon Cowell ‘Pretty Fed Up’

How is this round still a thing?

This week’s ‘X Factor’ sees the return of everyone’s *sigh* favourite round, the six chair challenge, with viewers set to see Nicole Scherzinger struggling with her decisions.

This is the first time returning judge Nicole has had to endure this stage of the competition, and unsurprisingly, she finds it rather difficult to make her choices.

The former Pussycat Doll agonises over who to put through, reports the Mirror, telling the baying crowd: “You guys are making this so hard!”

Simon Cowell then apparently begins to lose his patience, telling her: “Why’s it hard? There’s only one boy standing there. One seat, one boy.”

This isn’t the first time a judge has struggled with the round and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was previously left in tears while attempting to select her acts in 2014.

An ‘X Factor’ spokesperson has explained the situation, telling the paper: “Nicole is a perfectionist and wanted to make sure she picked the right six boys to take through to her judges houses.

Simon isn't exactly known for his patient nature 

“This meant she asked some of the boys to sing again so she could be sure. There’s nothing in the rules to stop sing offs and it has happened before.”

So far, the current series of ‘X Factor’ has received mixed reviews, and while the first episode had record-breakingly low ratings, things have thankfully picked up a bit since.

The show has also had its fair share of drama, with one hopeful storming the audition room, and another having to leave the competition prematurely, due to visa issues.
