Nicole Scherzinger knows a thing or two about making a hit record, and the former Pussycat Doll and current judge of The X Factor recently spoke to Britain’s OK! Magazine about what she’s learned throughout the years.
She explained: “I’ve become more relaxed about things, that’s for sure. I’ve learnt that it’s important to be authentic because that’s what separates you from everyone else. That’s one of the reasons I’m taking so much time to release new music. It has to come from a truthful and honest place because the industry is so over-saturated at the moment.”
Artists such as Sam Smith and Adele are those that “resonate” with audiences, she says, because of how open they are about their personal life through their music.
The comments come after Nicole asked Pride of Britain winner Moin Younis to be her VIP guest at the live final of The X Factor a little later this year.
At 17-years-old, Moin suffers with Epidermolysis bullosa, which makes his skin blister and tear whenever it’s touched. He won the Teenager of Courage Award for his work as an ambassador for the Acorns Children’s Hospice in Birmingham, and has amassed a string of celebrity friends on social media thanks to his selfless work.
Meanwhile, Nicole will now be preparing for her category to take to the stage in tonight’s live X Factor show (November 5). Last week, her Wildcard act Talia Dean was sent packing, so she’ll be hoping to hang on to her three remaining artists – Kevin Davy, Matt Linnen and TracyLeanne Jefford.
By the end of the night, one of her three acts, or one of Sharon’s four remaining girls will be sent away from the competition, whilst the act out of all seven artists with the highest amount of votes will go into a prize fight against last night’s winner Rak-Su, for the chance to join a renowned producer in the studio and make a single.
