Melanie Amaro has said that Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger "will be missed" on The X Factor USA.

First season X Factor judges Abdul and Scherzinger confirmed their exits from the reality series last week, as did host Steve Jones.

Amaro - who won The X Factor in December - was asked about the change in the show's judging panel during an interview with Access Hollywood.

"Judging is a hard something and them being judges, I know they had to make some, like, big decisions on the show, but I'm just, I'm happy I had a chance to work with all of them," Amaro told the website. "They're amazing judges."

Amaro added of The X Factor's future: "[Paula and Nicole] will be missed, but I just feel as though I need to look forward to what next season's gonna bring, who [Simon Cowell] has up his sleeve to bring as a judge."

Mariah Carey is among the stars who has been tipped to join The X Factor's judging panel. She recently received the endorsement of friend and American Idol judge Randy Jackson.

Celebrity Perez Hilton had also asked to be considered by Simon Cowell for a role on The X Factor's second season.

Last week, it was reported that Cowell has offered Beyoncé a $100m contract to become an X Factor judge.

LA Reid - who judged the first season of The X Factor - recently signed on to return for the series' next run.

The X Factor premieres its second season on Fox later this year.
