X Factor USA judge Nicole Scherzinger said she cried so much during the TV talent show's home visits that she was a mess. "A hot mess," as this performer put it.
Apparently, taking out some of the artists who were vying for a five million dollar prize on the American version of the hit UK reality show was more than tough for this sweet arbiter. She didn't want to send any contestants home, let along four of the eight acts who showed up at her Malibu home to sing in front of this Pussycat Doll and her expert helper, singer extraordinaire Enrique Iglesias.
In fact, Nicole Scherzinger declared on Good Day LA, "I get excited and cry because I know what it feels like to get to live your purpose or your dreams are fulfilled."
The singer added, "I also know what it feels like to get your heart crushed and have to pick yourself up and move on."
Perhaps Nicole wasn't just talking about a TV show competition; indeed, perhaps she was talking about the recent split from her long time boyfriend, Lewis Hamilton (see back story here). But whatever she was talking about, Scherzinger did deem herself "a real hot mess when I did the Judges' Houses! There were like a river of tears. My poor makeup artist, God bless her..."
At the end of the day, this X Factor judge picked Stacy Francis, Dexter Haywood, LeRoy Bell and Josh Krajcik to continue on in the competition, and they will appear on Fox tonight to do just that.
And so, with that being said, do you think Nicole Scherzinger got it right? Thoughts? Thanks.
