Singer jets in from Los Angeles to join Tulisa Contostavlos, Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow on X Factor judging panel
Nicole Scherzinger has touched down at Heathrow airport, ahead of her stint as a judge on this year’s X Factor show.
The pop singer is in town for her sought after gig, which will see her join Tulisa Contostavlos, Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow on the judging panel.
The songstress has already said that this series, which starts on Saturday, will be the best yet, explaining: ‘We’re excited about this year’s change and as acts are also able to write and perform thier own songs, everyone will be blown away by this year’s series!’
She also added: ‘I’m going to be myself, heart and soul and give 110% like I always do. As an international artist and someone who has been in the music industry for a number of years I know what will sell in the US and across the world, so I will bring this knowledge to The X Factor in the UK.
‘I’ll be helping the contestants and audiences to see what it truly takes to make it and bring out the best in them.’
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that fellow judge Gary Barlow will not be appearing at the X Factor press conference today, or at the judges houses rounds, following the tragic news that his daughter was still born only last week.
For the first time in X Factor history, acts will be able to sing their own tracks in auditions and those who already have management will now be able to enter too.
