Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger (/niˈkoʊl ˈʃɜrzɪŋər/ ni-KOHL SHUR-zing-ər; born June 29, 1978) is an American singer, songwriter, television personality, and occasional dancer. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, she made an appearance on the television series Popstars in her early adulthood earning herself a spot in Eden's Crush and then achieved widespread recognition as the lead vocalist of pop group The Pussycat Dolls, one of the world's best-selling girl groups of all time, before commencing her career as a solo recording artist in 2007.
Following the disbandment of The Pussycat Dolls in 2010, Scherzinger's personal struggles sent her career into hiatus. Scherzinger's debut solo album, Killer Love (2011), incorporated elements of eurodance and club pop music; its singles "Don't Hold Your Breath" and "Right There" charted within the top-ten in several countries worldwide. In addition to her solo work, Scherzinger has collaborated with numerous other artists, including being featured on the worldwide hits "Come to Me" (with Diddy) and "Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)" (with A.R. Rahman). She has also served as a judge on The X Factor in the United Kingdom since 2012, and for the first season in the United States in 2011.
As the primary voice on record for The Pussycat Dolls, both in the studio and onstage, Scherzinger has sold 50 million records worldwide and a further 16 million as a solo artist. Scherzinger's work with the group has earned her numerous awards and accolades. In 2009, Billboard ranked The Pussycat Dolls, as one of the top ten most successful musical acts of the 2000s. In 2011, Rolling Stone recognized her instant success as one of the best dancing musicians, ranking her ninth in the world, while VH1's included her as one of the "100 Greatest Women in Music" in 2012, and was ranked eighth "Sexiest Artist of All Time" in 2013. Outside of her work in the entertainment industry, Scherzinger is involved in charitable activities through human rights, world issues, and her work as an ambassador for the Special Olympics.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
