Former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger has announced that she will become a judge on the British version of The X Factor, replacing Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland. "I’m so excited to join the U.K. X Factor family," Scherzinger wrote in a tweet. "It's where I got my start, so it feels great to come full circle. I can’t wait to see what talent the U.K. has to offer and to help inspire and bring out the best in these artists."

Scherzinger is not new to the X Factor franchise. The singer was one of the judges on the first season of the United States version of the show last year, but was dropped along with Paula Adbul in favor of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
