She was the first runner-up at the 1996 Kentucky State Fair's talent contest. Studying at Wright State University, Scherzinger majored in acting and musical theatre, performing in productions of Show Boat and Chicago.
In 1999, Nicole Scherzinger put her studies on hold in order to sing backing vocals for the rock band Days of the New.

Their 2001 single 'Get Over Yourself (Goodbye)' hit number one in the US sales charts and as a result, Eden's Crush supported Jessica Simpson and *NSync on tour. Since the band split, Nicole Scherzinger has stated that she did not enjoy her time in the band, but that it toughened her up and enabled her to be successful in the Pussycat Dolls.
After Eden's Crush disbanded, Nicole Scherzinger released a few solo records, using the stage name Nicole Kea. One of her tracks, 'Breakfast in Bed' was used on the soundtrack to 50 First Dates, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.

Originally, the song had been performed by Tori Alamaze and featured Busta Rhymes. The second single from the album, 'Stickwitu' was the band's second number one in the UK. A follow-up single, 'Beep', featured will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas but did not perform as well as its predecessors.
'Buttons' featured Snoop Dogg and reached number three on the UK singles chart. The sixth single from the album was 'Wait a Minute', which featured Timbaland.
After being selected to open for Black Eyed Peas on tour, Pussycat Dolls were also chosen to support Christina Aguilera, with Rihanna as the opening act in the UK.
Nicole Scherzinger's vocal talent was singled out by many and she went on to record a number of duets with artists such as Will Smith, Shaggy and Diddy.
To expound on her own popularity, Nicole Scherzinger released a debut album, entitled Her Name Is Nicole. She worked with songwriters such as Sean Garrett and Polow da Don and 'Whatever U Like' also featured the rapper T.I. The album also saw Scherzinger work with Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol, Pharrell Williams, The Neptunes, Sting and Ne-Yo.
The second album from Pussycat Dolls was Doll Domination, in 2008. Following their World Domination Tour, Scherzinger told the press that she planned to work with Lady Gaga and A.R. Rahman. One single from the album, 'Watcha Think About That', featured Missy Elliott.
Their single 'Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)' was featured on the soundtrack to Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire.

Nicole Scherzinger has apparently been dropped by RCA following poor sales of her latest album.
It really hasn't been a good year for Nicole Scherzinger, the pop star who sold more than 50 million records with the Pussycat Dolls and who received a huge pay packet for her appearances on both the US and UK 'X Factor' judging panels. First, the singer's relationship with Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton came to an end, and now she has reportedly been dropped by RCA Records.

Knight will replace Scherzinger when the musical returns to the stage this October.

Louis Walsh has continued his public spat with his former colleague on ‘The X Factor’ Cheryl Fernandez-Versini by suggesting that she would refuse to be a panel judge alongside Nicole Scherzinger if the latter were to return.
Walsh has already been involved in a recent war of words with the ex-Girls Aloud star, branding her as “lazy” and “irrelevant” in an interview with Heat magazine on Tuesday last week. Cheryl had responded on Twitter by ridiculing Walsh as having an “obsession” with her. “Dear Lou Lou. Try using your mouth to say something positive about something positive,” she continued.

The Pussycat Dolls singer has reportedly dumped the F1 star because he doesn't want to get married.

Now in her mid-30's, the Pussy Cat Doll is finding it harder to motivate herself to keep working out.
Nicole Scherzinger is the proud owner of arguably one of the best bodies in all of showbusiness, so it may shock people to realize that she even finds it hard to keep to a fitness routine, especially as she is becoming older.

What makes her toned physique even more impressive is that the Pussy Cat Doll is currently performing six times a week as Grizabella in a revival of ‘Cats’ in London, but when talking with the new issue of Cosmopolitan Body, she credits taking care of her body as the reason behind maintaining such a hectic schedule.

The former Pussycat Doll is currently staring as Grizabella in ‘Cats’ at the London Palladium.
She’s been a Pussycat Doll, but now Nicole Scherzinger is a fully fledged cat, having made her West End debut in the revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic musical. In the revival, Scherzinger stars as Grizabella, the washed up former glamour cat. But how have the critics found the former 'X-Factor' judge in her most challenging role yet?

The first thing to get over is Scherzinger’s appearance. Although Grizabella is meant to be somewhat repulsive, Scherzinger hasn’t sacrificed much of her Pussycat Doll glamour. As Paul Taylor writes in The Independent, “It has to be said that Scherzinger doesn't make many concessions to appearing past-it.”
