Nicole Scherzinger may not have gone over well as a judge on The X Factor in the United States, but this former Pussycat Doll is headed overseas.
To judge the same exact show!
Indeed, Scherzinger has officially signed on as a panelists for The X Factor UK, saying today in a statement:
“I’m so excited to join the UK X Factor family. It's where I got my start, so it feels great to come full circle. I can’t wait to see what talent the UK has to offer and to help inspire and bring out the best in these artists.”
The singer will be doling out advice from Kelly Rowland's former seat. Much to the satisfaction of Peter Fincham, Director of Television at IT, who responded to the news with:
“Nicole will bring her wealth of experience, both as a solo artist, and as a member of a group, to this year's judging panel. We're delighted that she'll be joining us for the forthcoming series.”
