Nicole Scherzinger Joins The X Factor UK Judging Panel

June 13, 2012 04:00 PM by Lisa Princ

After the first season of The X Factor on FOX did not pan out as well as Simon Cowell had planned, he ended up cutting Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul from the show, replacing them with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato (oh joy!). Ironically, Nicole Scherzinger is now reportedly joining the judging panel of the UK’s X Factor – guess she wasn’t that bad after all! More after the jump…

According to Life & Style Magazine, Nicole Scherzinger was offered a spot on The X Factor UK despite being fired from the US X Factor after last season did not please Simon Cowell. Rumor has it that the former Pussycat Doll is replacing Kelly Rowland for $1 million dollars, as she impressed the show’s executives during a guest judging session that took place back in May. A source told the magazine: “She’s accepted the offer. She’s going to be in the U.K. for about four months.”

Apparently, Nicole’s relationship with her boyfriend, British race car driver, Lewis Hamilton played a part in her decision, as she will now be closer to him. After she was fired from the US X Factor, Nicole said she had no regrets, but then went on to tell the media that she thought she scared Simon Cowell a little. Apparently, Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger must have kissed and made up, huh?

    Scherzinger wasn’t fired. She left to put her award-winning solo career first. The uk needs her on the X factor, no other guest judge has what it takes. Scherzinger is one of the most beautiful women ever. She’ll be the best looking judge of the panel and the British public already love her. I really hope she does it.
