X Factor USA's Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger have drawn threatening tweets from fans.

The two female judges were the subject of viewers' anger after they voted off Drew Ryniewicz on Thursday night, reports TMZ.

Abdul and Scherzinger both received tweets from fans "hoping" that they would "die".

Sources have said that the pair are shocked by the strong response, saying that they have never encountered such a threatening reaction before.

Brian 'Astro' Bradley and Ryniewicz became the the sixth and seventh acts to be eliminated from the Top 12 of X Factor USA's first season last week.

Scherzinger, Abdul and fellow judge LA Reid decided that Simon Cowell's contestant Ryniewicz should go home ahead of Marcus Canty when the pair fell into the bottom two.

Ryniewicz has remained upbeat following her eviction, saying that "life is only going to get better".
