Nicole Scherzinger was left frantically mending a stage costume moments before she was due to perform live on British television last week (28Nov10) after finding a hole in her trousers.
The Pussycat Dolls star was due to perform her new single Poison on Simon Cowell's singing contest The X Factor.
She flew into a frenzy minutes before her live set when she realised her outfit had a tear in the crotch - but she managed to fix the gaping rip just as her performance was being announced.
She tells Britain's Live From Studio Five, "Right before I got on stage my crotch had a hole in it... and they're like, 'We've got three minutes and we're going live.' I was, like, 'You guys, there's a hole in my crotch! What am I going to do?' So they're like sewing my crotch hole up or whatever... and then I had to run to that thing that I was standing on (on stage).
"It sounds so glamorous, doesn't it? But this is the behind the scenes. I was like, 'What is going on? What am I doing?' Then I heard (the music) and I was like, 'Oh yeah, it's on, we are doing this. It's Poison time... The crotch was okay."
