Nicole Scherzinger had a ‘furious row’ with boss Simon Cowell backstage after being banned from performing at The X Factor final.
X Factor boss Simon Cowell banned Nicole Scherzinger from performing on Saturday night’s final.
Nicole gave Simon the cold shoulder during The X Factor 2017 final after he banned her from performing at duet with Kevin Davy White.
Simon decided Nicole would not sing with Kevin but instead insisted that her act would be joined by Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers.
Insiders backstage at The X Factor have said the relationship between Nicole and Simon ‘remain frosty’ after the row.
“Nicole couldn’t believe it when she was told Kevin would perform with Tokio. There was no discussion about it so it came as a huge shock,” a source told The Mirror.
“She went to speak to Simon about it but he had already made his decision and there was no changing it. Nicole was fuming.”
Sadly Kevin was eliminated from The X Factor on Saturday night.
Nicole said: “I can’t express how grateful I am for Kevin.
“We’re like brother and sister. I’ve cried at so many of his songs.”
The X Factor concludes on Sunday evening.
