Nicole Scherzinger is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, model and actress of Filipino, Hawaiian and Russian descent. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, she moved to Louisville, Kentucky with her mother, sister and German American stepfather at the age of six. As the lead vocalist and only member of The Pussycat Dolls with song writing credits on their albums, Scherzinger was the obvious choice to transition from group member to solo artist. Working with Swedish electro pop producer RedOne on her debut album, Scherzinger said they had ‘created something unique of our own’. In addition to her music, Scherzinger also impressed the UK X Factor team, with judge Louis Walsh saying, ‘This girl has the X Factor in every way. She just got it, was incredibly impressive and ticked every box.’
