Next year's The X Factor will be looking a bit different ... now that Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones have been given the boot.

The three show regulars have been fired, according to The Wrap.

A source tells the site:

    "They expected Paula to be the goofy girl, and Nicole to be the pretty one. But Paula was so bad that it made none of it work."

The site adds that Executive Producer Simon Cowell wanted to make "a clean sweep" and will now be looking for new talent to replace the three.

The source adds:

    "They survived this year, but it didn’t really work. So they’ve figured they have an opportunity to fix it.

Fox has confirmed that the former Pussycat Dolls singer and Jones have, indeed, left the show. However, the network has yet to confirm Abdul's departure.

The X Factor's September debut was watched by 12.49 million viewers. Simon Cowell claimed The X Factor would beat Idol in the ratings, however the show failed to achieve that goal.

Nicole Scherzinger is proving that she's got the X Factor when it comes to her job and that insane bod! But the former Pussycat Doll singer has been working on her body since age 14.

The 33-year-old X Factor judge tells Shape:

    "I started jogging and counting calories when I was just 14. I've been on every diet you can imagine. By the time I was in the Pussycat Dolls, I was on the scale all the time. It became my enemy because I noticed that when I exercised really hard, I'd gain weight."

When it comes to food, Hawaiian-born Scherzinger admits, "Actually, I eat - a lot!" Her motto is: "Stay active, eat everything in moderation, and stop being so tough on myself."

You go, girl!

Nicole Scherzinger Schools Simon Cowell On X Factor

We have to admit, we didn't know she had these pipes either!

Nicole Scherzinger might be known as the sexy frontwoman for pop group The Pussycat Dolls, but she taught Simon Cowell a thing or two about her real X Factor on The X Factor Wednesday night!

After a 20-year-old woman gave an oversexed audition, Cowell said he felt like Scherzinger would have done the same when she was younger.

Conan O'Brien Stares At Nicole Scherzinger's Boobs ... And No One Blames Him

Sep 20, 2011 12:45 PM

Nicole Scherzinger is officially awesome.

The new X Factor judge went on Conan last night in a very tight leopard print dress that left very little to the imagination ... especially when it came to her cleavage.

Conan O'Brien tries to concentrate during the interview, but his eyes begin to drift downwards when she starts talking about why all the ladies love Simon Cowell. So she says, "Focus, Conan," and directs him back up to her face. "I'm trying to speak here," she laughs. "Serious talk."

How does Conan respond? "It's so [unfair]. I'm sorry! ... Good god! Finally let's be real here for a second. You didn't think I was gonna look down there?" And then he proceeds to mock-motorboat her.

Brilliant.

See the whole interview -- including her impressively dead-on Britney Spears impression -- above.
