POLL: Rate or slate Nicole as an X Factor judge: Is she better than Cheryl Cole?

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2012)

Nicole Scherzinger has made her live debut as an X Factor judge - but do you rate her?

We have to admit, the US star has been a great addition to this year's line up, if only by default.

With Gary wanting to turn the show into a copy of The Voice, Louis getting even more ridiculous and Tulisa generally not seeming to care anymore, Nicole has been a breath of fresh air.

We weren't too keen on the former Pussycat Doll on the US version of the show, and the auditions she was a guest judge we were also unsure on.

But Nicole's proven herself on the live shows, by far giving the best feedback to the acts and coming out with some of the best lines.

Even if most of them are by accident...

There's been no tears and few signs of the person that was slated as a judge on the X Factor USA by the media last autumn.

But is she better than Cheryl Cole, who Nicole replaced on the US show last year?
