Nicole Scherzinger Named as X Factor UK Judge

Here’s some surprising news. ITV is reporting that Nicole Scherzinger will join the judges’ panel for the next series of X Factor UK.

This is pretty interesting news considering she was fired from the X Factor US panel. Flat out, she was a pretty terrible judge, prone to meltdowns and with nothing interesting to say about any of the acts. Maybe the chemistry of the UK panel will allow her talents to emerge in some way? I don’t know. She was pretty awful on the two seasons she spent as judge The Sing Off too.

The singer will join Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos on the talent show in a reported £750,000 deal.

Congratulations Nicole?
