Nicole Scherzinger thinks Mel B gives Cowell a run for his money
All the latest news and gossip from The X Factor...
Nicole Scherzinger spoke to BBC Radio 1's Scott Mills this morning. Here's what she had to say about X Factor, life as a judge and those scary Mel B moments.
Scott – hey Nicole how are you?
Nicole – I’m amazing how are you? I’m in LA, I’m in the studio actually recording my album I just took a break from the booth to say WHATSSUPPPPPP!
Scott – so I imagine you’d be in like a massive mansion like one of the ones you see on Judges Houses with scented candles everywhere and big staircases and lots of minimal lighting and then you are speaking to me on a phone in a massive chair a bit like a throne and then you’re on a terrace talking to me, overlooking LA at night but you’re not…
Nicole – no but let’s go back to that happy place! I have a pretty cool studio over here in Los Angeles, it’s really nice it’s like home to me so it’s cosy, and there are candles when I record and a nice comfy cosy couch that I’m talking to you on.
Scott – so it’s not a million miles away from what I just described…so are you spending all night in the studio?
Nicole – yeh I pretty much live here when I’m not on a plane and doing X Factor and photoshoots and singing, I’m here
Scott – so what time do you get n in the morning your time, like 6/7am and then finish and go to sleep?
Nicole – I’ll probably get in at about 5am and then wake up in a few hours and then go to soul cycling and be in the studio by noon
Scott – I saw your twitter about soul cycling, what’s that?
Nicole – soul cycling is this thing that started in New York and they just brought it to LA and I want to bring it to London. It’s spinning class, it’s super cool, it’s like beyond spinning, it’s like a club and it’s like only candle lit, and it’s like inspiring and empowering, they’re like ‘be the warrior’, ‘you can do it’ ‘let go of your demons’ ‘raaaaaaaar’,
Scott – so is it like spinning and therapy at the same time?
Nicole – I swear to you it’s spinning and therapy at the exact same time.
On Guest Judges:
Nicole –…I think it’s great that they got to have people like Mel B and Anastacia and I know they have a lot of other Guest Judges coming up too so they get to mix it up
Nicole – I originally came on to Guest Judge one show in London and then the first day I was there they asked me to stay permanently
Nicole – (on Mel B) she was ruthless I loved it! … she gave Simon Cowell a run for his money
On the difference between the UK and the US X Factor’s:
Nicole – I think it’s more fun over here [the UK], there’s a lot more characters, the talent is really raw and home grown … it’s beautiful the talent over here, I’m REALLY impressed. I’m blown away.
Scott – How are you getting on with the other Judges?
Nicole – I love all the other Judges, I do, I get along really well with them….I’d never met Tulisa but she’s such a cool chick.
Are you lovin' Nicole's contribution?
Does the X Factor panel work for you and should Mel B be a permanent judge?
