Nicole Scherzinger (born Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger, 29.6.1978)
Nicole Scherzinger is a lead member of the Pussycat Dolls and is also dating the Formula One champion driver Lewis Hamilton.
Childhood: Nicole Scherzinger was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Alfonso Valiente and Rosemary. Her father is of Filipino descent and her mother is of Russian descent. Her parents separated when she was a baby and her maternal family moved to Louisville, Kentucky.
It was in Louisville that Nicole Scherzinger began performing, attending the Youth Performing Arts School at DuPont Manual High School. 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.
Entertainment Career: Nicole Scherzinger was picked as one of the girl group Eden's Crush when she was on the TV series Popstars, becoming one of the group's main vocalists. 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.
Nicole Scherzinger joined the burlesque troupe the Pussycat Dolls, as they were being re-moulded as recording artists. Scherzinger had previously seen the troupe perform on The Late Show with David Letterman, when Carmen Electra sang 'Big Spender'.
The debut album from Pussycat Dolls was entitled PCD and was released in 2005. The lead single from Pussycat Dolls was 'Don't Cha', which became a global success. 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.
In January 2010, it was reported that Nicole Scherzinger was working on a second album of solo material, working with the likes of Ne-Yo and Jay Sean. Later that year, Nicole Scherzinger took part in and won the TV reality contest, Dancing with the Stars. Other celebrities in the series included Pamela Anderson, Shannen Doherty, Buzz Aldrin and Aiden Turner.
In July, 2010, Nicole Scherzinger attended the Manchester auditions of the UK talent contest, X Factor as a guest judge with Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh, whilst Dannii Minogue was on maternity leave.
Personal Life: Having previously dated the actor Talan Torriero, Nicole Scherzinger is now dating Lewis Hamilton, the former Formula One world champion driver.
The new series sees familiar faces back on the judging panel.
ITV have confirmed that the new series of ‘The X Factor’ will return on Saturday 27 August 2016 at 8pm and Sunday 28 August at 8pm. The new series sees the return of original judges Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, as well as former judge Nicole Scherzinger, alongside Simon Cowell.

A short teaser for the series has also been released, giving a glimpse of some hopefuls as well as the judges’ reactions, set to Girls Aloud’s ‘Something Kinda Ooh’. The show will be hoping to return to form this series after suffering low ratings last year.

Scherzinger and Hamilton split up in February 2015 after seven years of on/off dating.
The British Formula One world champion ended his seven-year romance with Scherzinger in February last year. It was widely rumoured that the ex-couple was struggling to maintain a long-distance relationship, with Hamilton travelling for more than half the year, but apparently the real reason is that Lewis felt more strongly about his car collection.

Scherzinger and the Formula One ace ended their seven year relationship in 2015.
Simon Cowell made things a little awkward during the filming of the bootcamp stage of this year’s ‘X Factor’ on Sunday (July 10). The music mogul decided to tease fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger about her ex-boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, but the former Pussycat Doll didn't see the funny side.
Nicole Scherzinger was teased by Simon Cowell about Lewis Hamilton.
According to The Mirror, a contestant named Niall Sexton decided to perform Scherzinger’s 2014 hit ‘Run’ and afterwards Cowell decided to take a swipe at his fellow judge. “What’s the song called? Run. Why does it make me think of Lewis Hamilton? He’s fast. Let’s dedicate that to Lewis, shall we?” Cowell said.
The former Spice Girl is standing in for Scherzinger temporarily because of a "diary clash".
Scherzinger has cited a “diary clash” that had been set up before she agreed to return to the panel of ‘The X Factor’ last month, and therefore she won’t be present at the London auditions on Friday (June 17th). Instead, the former Spice Girl – also previously a judge on the 2014 series of the reality show – will be taking her place for the day.

Scherzinger, Osbourne and Louis Walsh have all returned to the talent show for the new series.
Nicole Scherzinger is reportedly set to pocket £125,000 more than fellow returning ‘x factor’ judge Sharon Osbourne. According to The Mirror the former Pussycat Doll will earn just over £1.8million for the new 'X Factor' series while Sharon will get £1.7million.
Nicole Scherzinger is reportedly being paid more than Sharon Osbourne for her ‘X Factor’ return.
Sources told the newspaper that the revelation will come as a shock to Sharon, as she was assured that she would be the highest-paid judge after head Simon Cowell. They added that Sharon had only decided to sign the contract once her demand was agreed.
The ‘X Factor’ judge described the tabloid story as ‘complete fiction’.
Nicole Scherzinger has taken to Twitter to deny that she had a ‘boozy’ fling with nightclub owner Joe Fournier, following her split from Lewis Hamilton. Fournier reportedly told The Sun that he had enjoyed a fling with the former Pussycat Doll last year when she holidayed on the Greek island of Mykonos, but Nicole has labelled the story ‘complete fiction’.
Nicole Scherzinger has slammed a nightclub owner for a tabloid kiss and tell story.
On Twitter Nicole wrote: 'It angers me that people create complete fiction in an attempt to secure a little attention, with zero respect or integrity.’ A spokesperson for the singer later told MailOnline: ‘This is a fictitious story created by someone with a vivid imagination. Nicole is appalled by these ridiculous lies.’

The three former judges will be back on the panel alongside Simon Cowell when the talent show returns later this year.
It was probably the worst kept secret in television, but this year’s ‘x factor’ judging panel has finally been confirmed with Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh all making a comeback. The three former judges will join Simon Cowell when the show returns later this year and he'll no doubt be hoping the familiar faces will bring back viewers after last series’ low ratings.
The former Pussycat Doll last sat on the judging panel in 2013.
Nicole Scherzinger has reportedly agreed a million-pound deal with Simon Cowell which will see her return to the ‘X Factor’ judging panel later this year. According to The Sun, Nicole’s return to the ITV talent show is now official and the new line-up will be announced next week.
Nicole Scherzinger has reportedly signed on as an ‘X Factor’ judge.
Nicole will be sitting alongside Simon Cowell and two other retuning judges from the past, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne. A source told The Sun: “Simon thinks Nicole is a great asset to the show and is delighted he was able to sign her up, despite the commitments she previously had elsewhere.”
Scherzinger pulled out weeks before rehearsals were due to start
Leona Lewis has been signed up to the latest Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s Cats just weeks after Nicole Scherzinger reportedly pulled out to return to The X Factor judging panel. Her decision reportedly left Lord Lloyd-Webber "furious".

Lewis has since tweeted that she is "thrilled" to be playing Grizabella in the show that is due to open in July.

The former Pussycat Doll left the Broadway production to judge on the next series of the ‘X Factor’.
Nicole Scherzinger has responded to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s furious comments after she pulled out of the Broadway production of Cats, in order to return to the ‘X Factor’. Webber accused the singer of making him look ‘like an absolute t**’ when she left the show, as he now has to find another actress to fill the role.
Nicole Scherzinger has responded to Andrew Lloyd Webber.
But speaking to RadioTimes.com, Scherzinger said: "I had every intention of doing Cats on Broadway but the contract was never finalised. I am incredibly blessed to be given so many amazing opportunities, including Cats, but unfortunately we weren’t able to make it work this time around.”
