'Kimmel': Are the Other 'X Factor' Judges Ganging Up on Simon Cowell? (VIDEO)

'The X Factor' judges, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'In the past two weeks, Simon Cowell has gone from three to one act on 'The X Factor.' In both instances, it came down to the women on the panel to decide. The first week, they eliminated Drew. This week, Nicole Scherzinger threw it to the public vote and Rachel Crow was out.

"Do you guys feel like you ganged up on Simon's contestants specifically because you wanted to win this competition?" Jimmy Kimmel asked the other three judges on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). All of them, of course, vehemently denied it.

When Kimmel then told Paula Abdul that he felt "both" of her acts deserved to go (all of the judges started with three acts), she feigned walking off the stage. "Paula Abdul has eliminated herself from the competition tonight," Kimmel said, before she returned.

Then it was like flipping a switch to ten years ago with 'American Idol,' as Kimmel started asking about any secret sexual tryst between Cowell and Abdul. Once again, they denied the possibility, with Abdul assuming Cowell would be a sexy lover, and Cowell saying he wouldn't want to have to talk to her afterward.

I DO think the other judges ganged up on Simon, but they are making this about THEM winind the competition, and not the contestants. It really sucks that Rachael was sent home by Nicole. That was the lowest blow in a long time. It was our understanding that "X" was supposed to be about finding the next great singer(s), and it has become about wich judge is going to win the competition.

I think it is a foregone conclusion that Melanie is going to win. The show has lost its lustre and soul with the elimination of Rachael. She had the most honest reaction of ANY contestant on ANY show ever, and she has shown us her beautiful spirit and soul since that night. I hope that the whole world embraces this wonderful young lady, and she gets as many bathrooms as she wants!!!! Kudos to her parents for raising such an amazing young lady.
