When Nicole Scherzinger left ‘The X Factor (US)’ in January, she claimed that it was a mutual decision between her and the producers of the show as she wanted to focus on her music career. However, it seems that her need for a pay cheque is stronger than her illusions of chart success and she has joined ‘The X Factor (UK)’ today.
In a statement issued by ITV today, it was announced that Scherzinger has permanently joined the ‘X Factor (UK)’ as a judge. In her own words, the singer stated, “I’m so excited to join the UK X Factor family…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.”
Last month, it was revealed that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato had replaced Scherzinger and Paula Abdul on the ‘X Factor (US)’ judging panel. Meanwhile, Scherzinger has yet to release her ‘Killer Love’ solo album in the US and her music career has sunk into dormancy.
