According to, the feud between Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger has really heated up. We all saw Simon take credit for Stacy's awesome performance last week, and apparently it really bothered Nicole. She has reportedly banned Simon from rehearsals. I think this is starting to get ridiculous. First of all, if it's a ploy to get some ratings, then they should just stop it.

If it's actual anger then I understand Nicole's position in a way, after all it is her team. For me though, I always want to know what Simon thinks, and I bet the contestants do too! The man is one of the greatest talent scouts on the planet, so Nicole, let Simon be Simon!
