X Factor 2012: Nicole Scherzinger is TellyMix readers' favourite judge

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2012)

Nicole Scherzinger has been crowned TellyMix readers' favourite judge, overtaking Gary Barlow.

The former Pussycat Doll singer wasn't a favourite back in the auditions, only polling above Louis Walsh, who remains at the bottom.

But Nicole's personality has shone through on the live shows, and she's now won the show with two of her boys going head to head in tonight's final results.

Nicole however only narrowly managed to oust Gary from the top spot of our poll, suggesting that bosses would be making an mistake by axing him.

Becoming the first judge to lose all of her acts has left Tulisa third, when she was vying with Gary for the title last year.

It's been claimed today that Tulisa will be going all out in this weekend's final in a bid to show producers why she should stay on the panel next year.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “She fears the writing may be on the wall so she’ll give her all at the final.”

Despite coming last in our poll like he's always done, we still can't help but love Louis Walsh and would be very shocked to see him leave the panel.

Bookies William Hill meanwhile are offering 6/1 that Simon is a judge in 2013, the same price is offered for Simon to pull the plug and for no X Factor series in 2013.

“Simon was the reason that many people watched the show and we believe he is the only one that can halt the falling viewing figures!” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
