XFactor 2012 judges: Nicole Scherzinger wants to be back next year

Nicole Scherzinger (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Nicole Scherzinger has said she wants to return to the show next year.

The wacky US singer joined the panel this year from the American series, and has gone down a storm with viewers.

Speaking on the Xtra Factor, Nicole confessed that she wasn't sure whether or not producers would want her back.

She said: "I don't know if they want me bank, sometimes I got a little bonkers. After that vagina and balls song [on the Xtra Factor] who knows.

"I am having the best time, I just try to be in the moment and focus on the contestants. I want to be creative in how I'm critiquing them the talent here in the UK is incredible and I'm so proud of the three contestants i have"

With Nicole revealing she was thinking about moving to the UK, another year on the show certainly seems on the cards.

It was claimed yesterday that X Factor bosses including Simon Cowell had been impressed by Nicole.

A source told The Sun today: “It is fair to say that Simon and the production team have been thrilled with Nicole’s performance. She has been absolutely great.

“Simon is a huge fan of hers and the production team think she has been a revelation.

“There won’t be any decision on the make-up of the 2013 panel until next year but she has certainly made a good impression.

“Simon is really up for her coming back.”


The X Factor 2012 continues tonight on ITV1 and ITV1HD with Sunday's results show, one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna and Bruno Mars.
