Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2017)

Nicole Scherznger has revealed she'll be performing on this year's X Factor 2016 live shows.

Chatting ahead of this Saturday's premiere of the new series, Nicole let slip: "I’m definitely going to perform on the show, I can’t wait."

And she teased fans: "I’m in the lab cooking something up right now, you’re going to get something new from me."

However it's not just performing that has Nicole already excited for the live finals later in the year.

"With the live shows anything goes, anything can happen," she said. "It’s such an amazing energy from the audience, I love watching our contestants perform, that’s what gives me Sch-life!

"I’m an adrenalin junkie and that’s just the ultimate adrenalin rush. If you F-up, you F-up for all of the world! That’s a rush."

Asked if she would be 'naughty' without an edit, Nicole replied: "I mean, I’m a classy but sassy doll here. It’s going to be fun, I think Mrs O, she’s the mamma, she’s going to take charge of that stuff."

Meanwhile, speaking about returning to the X Factor after leaving in 2014, Nicole said: "It feels like home sweet home, I’ve missed the UK and obviously me, Sharon and Louis were together on our last season.

"I haven’t been on a show with Simon in a few years and he’s really awesome, he’s not as scary as I remember! It’s a great feeling on the panel, a really natural, family, homey vibe, nothing is forced and there’s a lot of positive, fun energy."

The X Factor begins this Saturday night on ITV at 8PM and continues Sunday at 8PM.
