Washington: Paula Abdul is believed to have secretly instructed her fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger to vote off Rachel Crow from X Factor.

Abdul’s microphone was down when Scherzinger was making her decision but with a little volume tinkering one could hear Abdul whisper to her, “Just let it go to a deadlock,” reported.

Scherzinger did as she was told, and the decision led to Crow’s removal from the show.

The two judges have since recieved death threats from Crow’s angry fans.
