‘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.

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.
