Nicole Scherzinger Releases New Single, Judging U.S. X-Factor This Fall on Fox

You probably already saw my honest critique of Nicole Scherzinger's new song with rapper 50 Cent, "Right There," but if you haven't - let me summarize. Not my cup of tea. Further confirming my feelings towards the song, was Sherzy's lackluster performance of the song on American Idol a couple of weeks ago. The performance itself wasn't necessarily lackluster, but my blase attitude towards the song, combined with Scherzinger's mediocre live vocals + the fact that I'm officially over American Idol this season, made me a little bit indifferent to everything.  Perhaps that wasn't fair to Nicole.  We already know she can sing, so I guess it's good to know that she's human and that she decided to do live vocals WHILE dancing.  That being said, there is some Scherzinger news that I am excited about.

Aside from the upcoming release of her solo album here in America, the recent announcement that Nicole Scherzinger would be co-hosting the U.S. version of X-Factor this Fall actually makes me really happy!  Although NOW, with Cheryl Cole's untimely sacking, it appears that she'll be sitting at the judges table.  Seeing her judge on this past season's UK X-Factor + seeing her as a judge on the U.S. acapella reality show The Sing-Off, I've sort of grown a soft spot for Nicole.  To be honest, the rumors that X-Factor will now have ONE host sounds like a better idea to me.  Anyone remember Brian Dunkleman from series one of American Idol? Didn't think so.  I think Nicole will be great as a judge, it's just a pity that Cheryl Cole won't be a part of it anymore. I was really looking forward to seeing her on TV here in America. It will also be nice to see Welsh TV personality Steve Jones as the sole host as, he's a hot British man and who in their right mind, doesn't love a hot British man?

Joining Scherzinger on the judges panel we have  Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Antonio "L.A." Reid.  Together, they will scour the country for America's next great music act. Very exciting! I'm curious to see if Scherzinger will re-join The Sing-Off for season 3, as it seems like she has a lot on her plate right now. Regarding her X-Factor gig, Nicole doesn't seem to be taking anything for granted, and remains very humble:
"I am thrilled to be asked by Simon Cowell to host The X Factor,” said Nicole, who recently served as a guest judge on the UK version. “I loved working alongside Simon on the U.K. show, and cannot wait to see what he has in store for the U.S. I’m so excited to work with Steve Jones and help discover astounding talent from across the country!"
Good for her. I hope this new gig gives Nicole some good exposure here in the States. If you like her new 50 Cent-assisted single, "Right There," check that out on iTunes HERE. You can also catch the video for the song over on my blog by clicking HERE. I've posted a little behind the scenes footage of Nicole Scherzinger working with 50 Cent on the video for "Right There," so check that out below.

Did you see this little tidbit posted by Attitude mag re: Steve Jones? (Well, maybe not so little.)
