X Factor Alum Stacy Francis: Nicole Scherzinger Has a Big Ego

THE X FACTOR: TOP 17. Stacy Francis. Age: 42. Hometown: Brooklyn, NY. Currently Resides: Los Angeles, CA. CR: Aldo Rossi / FOX. X Factor contestant, Stacy Francis, isn’t shedding any tears over the ouster of her former mentor, Nicole Scherzinger, from Simon Cowell’s singing competition. Stacy tells EOnline:

“Listen, Nicole isn’t a bad person but I don’t think she was ever committed enough,” Francis tells me exclusively. “She didn’t have her head in the game.”

Francis said Scherzinger was MIA more than she should have been. When she was there, Francis said, she felt Scherzinger’s ego could get in the way. “At one point, she banned Simon from my rehearsals,” Francis claims. “He wanted to help and he knew what he was doing. It became about Nicole’s ego instead of me winning the $5 million.”

Stacy has kind words for Paula Abdul:

“She was there six days a week,” she said. “She gave her time and her commitment.”

The former American Idol judge was a much needed mother figure, who was “loving and caring. X Factor is tough. It’s a tough show to be on,” Francis said.

If Stacy thinks she didn’t win X Factor because Nicole wasn’t a good mentor, she’s completely delusional.
