It looks like Simon Cowell does play favorites – in this case, it is being reported that his favorite judge on the X Factor is Nicole Scherzinger. UK’s OMG Yahoo reports that Simon sees Nicole as the head judge, despite there technically already being another head judge. A source tells the blog, “He's been bombarding her with late night calls and texts, and gets in contact with her after each show for a low down. Sometimes it's as late as 3 am in London"
The source also adds: "When Simon sees recordings of each live show he gets in contact with Nicole to tell her that she came out on top. He definitely sees her as a head judge."
Nicole also had an interview with More! Magazine where she talked about homesickness and being new in London, where she says, “For the first couple of days I was homesick, but I'm starting to find I'm fitting in quite well at being a Londoner. I love the people here, so that's really helped. And I've made my place a little bit more cosy with fairy lights and candles and yummy blankets. I'm really liking it, actually. I didn't know what to expect - it's totally different from the US."
