It’s not sur­pris­ing that Si­mon Cow­ell made the de­ci­sion to bring Nicole Scherzinger back for yet an­other se­ries. Not only does she pro­vide us with style envy, ev­ery time she’s on our tele­vi­sion screens, but the can-do-it-all star knows how to serve up some se­ri­ous en­ter­tain­ment value. From grab­bing life “by the balls” and com­par­ing con­tes­tants to a bowl of ce­real, to her in­cred­i­bly tal­ented sing­ing out­bursts, we re­veal the Scherz­tas­tic rea­sons we’re glad to have her back for an­other year...


We don’t know about you but we were blown away on the last se­ries of The X Fac­tor when Nicole belted out a few lines of Brit­ney Spears’ clas­sic hit Oops while she ca­su­ally waited on yet an­other au­di­tionee to en­ter the room. The judge then moved on to im­per­son­at­ing Shakira’s fa­mous song Wher­ever, When­ever – be­fore sing­ing a lit­tle Ri­hanna as a gig­gling Louis Walsh and Si­mon looked on. Un­be­known to Nicole, she was ac­tu­ally be­ing watched on a large pro­jec­tor screen while the ner­vous hope­fuls pa­tiently waited for their time to shine. So not only is Nicole a star in her own right, she’s a dab hand at im­i­tat­ing her fel­low megas­tars. Oh Scherzy, you re­ally do have it all!


It should be a given that all those sit­ting be­hind The X Fac­tor judg­ing ta­ble should be su­per tal­ented, but we’re sure you know all too well that isn’t al­ways the case (and no, we won’t name any names!). But time and time again, Scherzy hasn’t been afraid to step it up and show us ex­actly why she’s re­ceiv­ing that hefty pay check, which is ru­moured to be over a whop­ping £1 mil­lion this year. Nicole has never been afraid to step away from her judg­ing seat and take to the stage to sing along­side her con­tes­tants – who could for­get those in­cred­i­ble duets with Jahmene Dou­glas and James Arthur? Not only will Nicole give it her ab­so­lute all when it comes to per­form­ing with her con­tes­tants but last year she took to the stage for her very own mag­i­cal mash-up at ‘Diva Week’. Nicole walked on stage in a full length glit­ter­ing ball gown, her hair larger than life, and grabbed the mi­cro­phone from pre­sen­ter Der­mot to show us all she re­ally is the queen of all things diva!


When the for­mer Pussy­cat Doll first joined The X Fac­tor panel, she re­ally was a breath of fresh air for the show, and that’s mainly due to the hys­ter­i­cal and ran­dom phrases she fre­quently hits out with – much to the hi­lar­ity of the other judges and live au­di­ence. The ec­cen­tric star is known for de­scrib­ing things as ‘Schamaz­ing’ or ‘Scherz­tas­tic’, but her crazy com­ments don’t stop there, she’s also (more of­ten than not) heard liken­ing con­tes­tants to some of her favourite foods – yes, re­ally. When giv­ing band District 3 feed­back, Nicole said: “You are like warm ap­ple pie. I wanted you to chuck on some ice cream, shake things up, sprin­kle some Tabasco on there.” Okay Nicole, we think we might un­der­stand what you’re say­ing...
