Nicole Scherzinger, raised in our very own Louisville, went from Fox television’s “X-Factor” host, to judge, and is now one of the four judges on the UK version of X-Factor.
Although former Pussycat Doll lost her spot on the US show to Britney Spears, she will be replacing Destiny Child star, Kelly Rowland, in the UK gig.
Scherzinger made it a long way from her runner-up position in the Kentucky State Fair's Coca-Cola Talent Competition about 16 years ago. Life and Style reported she will be receiving about $1 million for her role as a judge on the show. Joining Louis Walsh on the panel, along with last year's successes Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos is a treat in itself. However, she will also be closer to her on-and-off beau, British race car driver Lewis Hamilton, making this new gig even more worth it.
This very talented singer, songwriter, dancer, choreographer, record producer, model, and actress really has it going for her! Can’t wait to see Louisville’s Nicole Scherzinger on UK’s X-Factor!
