Singer Nicole Scherzinger, who has replaced Cheryl Cole as a judge in the talent show The X-Factor, says she is a better judge than a host because she can have a voice. The former Pussycat Dolls moved from her original role as co-host alongside Steve Jones. “I did start out as a host and then they asked me to be a judge, I felt like I was better served as a judge, I could mentor and have a voice,” contactmusic.com quoted Scherzinger as saying.
The 33-year-old also enjoyed working with fellow judges Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul on the show because their bond is as entertaining as watching the contestants. “He’s a lot of fun, he vibrates at a certain level so everybody else vibrates at that level, if you allow him to he brings out the best in you. My most favourite part of these auditions, other than seeing the talent is watching Simon and Paula bicker back and forth, they’re brilliant together,” she said.
