Nicole Scherzinger To Quit ‘The X Factor’ Over Album?

Is Nicole Scherzinger going to take a major gamble, choosing a studio album over her cushiony seat on "The X Factor (UK)"?

According to a source close to the singer, she might just quit "The X Factor" in favor of giving 100 percent of her time and attention to promoting a new album.

"My album is coming out and I also need to focus on that. I don’t think I can make it work. By trying to juggle the two, one or both will suffer," a source told The Sun recently, pulling from a conversation they had with Nicole.

While Nicole Scherzinger has been successful, first with The Pussycat Dolls, is it really a smart idea to walk away from a guaranteed paycheck on "The X Factor" when her album, and the singles she puts out to promote it, could flop?

At this point, nothing has been made official, but the first round of "X Factor" auditions kick off in June.
