X Factor judge in surprise career move

It has been announced that singer Nicole Scherzinger will star in the upcoming production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats.

The former X Factor judge will make her West End debut when the acclaimed musical returns to London’s Palladium Theatre at Christmas.

The 36-year-old will be playing the role of Grizabella, the formerly “glamorous” cat who seeks acceptance within the tribe. Well, she has certainly got the glamour down!

The exciting news was shared via the official Cats Twitter page, along with a photo of Nicole and the show’s creator, Andrew Lloyd Webber.


Nicole, who is engaged to British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, expressed her delight at her new venture, describing the role as “a dream come true.”

She said: “I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show and I couldn’t be more excited…Andrew's score is breathtaking and I am truly honoured to have been asked to take part in what I know will be a very special time in my career. I can't wait to begin rehearsals." 

It is undoubtedly a huge role, but Nicole is certainly well able to belt out the tunes. We think she is an amazing choice for the part.
