Simon Cowell is making some big changes with "X Factor," including getting rid of Paul Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones. All three were told their contracts weren't being renewed, but right now LA Reid still has a job.

Simon has been having meetings to try to figure out what went wrong with the first season since ratings weren't as high as he expected them to be. According to one source, Paula's role was insignificant, while Simon thinks he needs a bigger celebrity on the panel next season. Who would you like to see be a judge? Are you surprised Paula got the boot?
