The X Factor: Nicole Scherzinger X Factor Debut

Nicole Scherzinger is simply The Best! That is what we thought of her performance as the guest judge on The X Factor this weekend. Cheryl Cole/ Dannii Minogue watch out, because there is a pussycat being groomed to take your place.

Stunning, beautiful and simply gorgeous, Nicole has it all. Add to this talent, charm, knowledge and likeability and you have the perfect female talent show judge.

On The X factor this weekend Nicole managed to charm the contestants, the crowd and her fellow judges Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell. There is no doubt that Cheryl being absent from the panel due to illness, gave Nicole the chance to shine and shine she did.

Simon in a recent interview was quick to sing her praises too, he said:

“Nicole was in a very difficult situation in Manchester when everyone knew Cheryl was ill. They can be a tough crowd and a lot of them turned up because they wanted to see Cheryl. But what was amazing was how quickly everyone warmed to Nicole. By the end they absolutely loved her.”

It was impressive to see how quickly Nicole managed to build a great rapport with the contestants with her  style of judging. Nicole’s rise to fame followed a similar path to that of Cheryl Cole’s. In 2001 she was made famous by appearing on the American version “Popstars”. In 2003 she joined the very successful American girl group, the Pussycat Dolls.

The good news for all her fans in the UK is that we will see more of her during bootcamp week as a result of judges Cheryl and Dannii being unable to attend.
