Nicole Scherzinger

Ambitious and superbly talented Grammy-nominated triple threat Nicole Scherzinger, has scored #1 singles on both sides of the Atlantic, selling 37 million singles worldwide—16 million records as a solo artist and a staggering 54 million albums as the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls, making them one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. The incredibly accomplished singer, dancer and television personality recently returned to The X Factor UK panel where she is wowing the British audience all over again.

Earlier this summer, Scherzinger wrapped filming the role of Penny in the highly anticipated “Dirty Dancing” remake for ABC, which airs next year. Scherzinger most recently teamed up with Neil Patrick Harris to co-host his new NBC primetime variety series “Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris.” Harris previously directed Scherzinger in a special engagement of the Tony Award-winning musical Rent at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, in which she received rave reviews for her performance as “Maureen.”

The “X Factor” judge (both the US & UK versions of the show) has also made a name for herself on the West End stage. By far one of her greatest recent achievements was a nomination for a Laurence Olivier Award for her debut performance as “Grizabella” in a revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats. In a recent BBC radio interview, Webber called Scherzinger’s recording of the famed hit single, “Memory,” the, “best recording of anything of my music ever done,” a strong statement, with legendary performers, including Barbara Streisand, covering the song in previous years.

With music still her first love, Scherzinger is hard at work on new tracks. She recently wowed an LA crowd last fall, sharing the stage with one of the most acclaimed opera singers in the world, Italian classical tenor, Andrea Bocelli. The sold-out Dolby Theater concert event featured a musical tribute to the silver screen featuring songs from Bocelli’s most recent album, Cinema, in which Nicole is featured. The performance aired as part of the 2015 PBS Arts Fall Festival “Great Performances” series last Thanksgiving. Scherzinger was also featured on Paul McCartney’s recent UN Foundation charity single, 'Love Song to the Earth,’ along with Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Fergie, Natasha Bedingfield, Angelique Kidjo, and many more, which was written to raise climate change awareness and pull in funds for Friends Of The Earth and the UN Foundation.

Outside of her work in the entertainment industry, Nicole is an Ambassador for UNICEF and a Global Ambassador for the Special Olympics. With her stunning looks and undeniable talent, Nicole Scherzinger is unstoppable.
