X Factor 2012 duets: Nicole Scherzinger feeling intimidated by her acts

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2012)

Nicole Scherzinger has confessed she's feeling intimated about tonight's X Factor 2012 duets.

This evening will see Nicole performing alongside her acts Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur.

The Pussycat Doll has admitted she's probably more nervous than they are, with the singer having to split her time between both boys as well as her own solo career.

She said: "Having worked with the boys a little bit this week, it's quite intimidating. I thought they were amazing, I mean I've been doing this for quite some time, but they were just brilliant, they make it look so easy.

"It's a real honour to be able to [sing with them]. I would always rather be on stage than behind the desk, so this is going to be fun for me."

Nicole previously revealed she and James would be taking on unique song together, rather than one of Nicole's own.

Meanwhile, the 'Right There' hitmaker revealed she's been working James and Jahmene extra hard this week to make sure they're on top form for tonight's final.

"The boys have worked so hard and secretly I have a whip, so I hit them," she joked. At least we hope she was joking.
