PICTURES! Nicole Scherzinger celebrates birthday at X Factor auditions

X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger was rather spoiled at auditions in Cardiff yesterday as she celebrated her birthday on the show.

Nicole turned 35 back on June 29, and the X Factor through a bit of a late party of the former Pussycat Dolls singer at the latest round of try outs in Wales yesterday.

A giant cake made out of chocolate balls was the centre piece to Nicole's birthday spread, which features everything you might expect from any good party: Nibbles, candles, party hats, party poppers and birthday banners.

Amongst Nicole's presents were a Welsh to English dictionary, which the American will no doubt find some use for, we're sure.

It was the final stop of this year's auditions tour, with Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack tweeting: "Morning, We're in Cardiff today. Good luck all auditionees... This is our last stop... Soooooo after today... We have our winner. Yikes."

The successful auditionees from the nationwide try outs will all travel to London later this month for the next stage of the competition: The callbacks at Wembley Arena.

There they will have to perform again but this time it won't only be the judges watching, with a huge audience of more than 5,000 making their opinions heard too.
