“You know what, I watch all those shows. I’m a big fan of those type of shows so I’ll probably be watching.”

The On The Floor hitmaker had kind words for Nicole Scherzinger — who will be a judge on The X Factor alongside Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul – wishing her “the best” of luck for her new venture.

“I just saw Nicole backstage,” she said. “I gave her all my love and wished her the best, she says she’s already started. She was supposed to be the host and now she’s a judge and she’s very excited about that.”


Nicole Scherzinger Lights Up Capital FM’s Summertime Ball & Talks On X Factor

Along with Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Eglesias, and other artists, Nicole Scherzinger performed for Capital FM’s Summertime Ball at London’s Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday. According to the Daily Mail, the show was phenomenal with show stopping performances not to mention diva fashion face-offs! More in detail at the link as well as photos and videos of their performances.

Nicole also addressed the X Factor in several interviews. Speaking to 95-106 Capital FM, Nicole told BANG Showbiz that she is fascinated by the chemistry between Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul. She also mentions how her role on the show is going great so far. She even gave some advise to the new judges on the UK version of the X Factor.

“I’m not there to be in between them. I get the front row ticket at the Paula and Simon show and I’m fascinated watching them, they’ve been working together for over 10 years.

“It’s just an honour for me being part of the panel, being an artist.”

Nicole — who replaced British singer Cheryl Cole as a judge on the panel — has completed her first round of auditions on the show, and has enjoyed the experience so far.

She added: “It’s going great! I just had my first judging time in New Jersey. It was a lot of fun. The other judges are brilliant and inspiring to be around. We don’t have private dressing rooms we like to keep it all out and open so we all share the same space.”

She also had some words of advice to Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos — who joined the panel on the U.K. version of ‘The X Factor’ following the departure of Cheryl and Dannii Minogue — telling them they just need to be themselves on the show.

Nicole added: “I would tell them just be yourself and have fun with it and speak from your heart. Try and be constructive if you can as well because these are these people’s dreams.”

Nicole also chatted with ITV Daybreak about her new judging role and a little on Cheryl Cole saying she did what was best for her.

“My take is I was happy to be a part of the show, accept the role of the host, because I believe in Simon, I believe in the X Factor.

“I’ve met Cheryl only a couple of times and she’s absolutely gorgeous and lovely.

“I know she’s done what’s best for her. And for me it’s an honour to be up there, to be able to have a voice and serve as a mentor.”

Wow, what I had given to be at Wembley Stadium yesterday 🙂
