Nicole Scherzinger isn’t just a pretty face. In what could prove to be a very smart move, the new X Factor judge reportedly wants to line up Tinie Tempah to assist her at Judges’ Houses.
As one of the biggest and most credible new names in British music we can see why Nicole wants the Pass Out singer to help decide who she should put through to the live shows.
“Nicole has the boys [category] and, while she prides herself on being able to spot male talent, she knows having a bloke at her side will help,” an X Factor source tells The Sun.
“Bosses have come up with several options but Tinie is the one she is keen on, so hopefully he will be free.”
The other names on the list of possible co-judges for Nic include 50 Cent, Professor Green and Labrinth. All of whom would do a good job of helping Nicole to spot talent.
“I’ll give 110%”
Nicole has also spoken about what she learned from her one-series stint on The X Factor USA, and the former Pussycat Doll insists that she’ll give the UK show her best without getting so emotionally involved,
“X Factor UK has a special place in my heart. The thing I battled with last year [on X Factor USA] was the rejection part, having to let contestants go. But I’ve grown so much since then. I’ll make sure I continue to give 110% of me but not wear my heart on my sleeve as much,” Nicole says in the new Cosmopolitan.
“People didn’t see I committed six days a week and put everything to one side to help those contestants,” she added. “You only have one person to answer to at the end of the night, and if you’re happy with yourself that’s all that matters.”
We just can’t wait for the new series to start!
