3. NICOLE SCHERZINGER

TV Show: The X Factor, FOX
Premiere Date: September 21
The former Pussycats Doll leader, Nicole Scherzinger, has been described by talent-spotter legend Simon Cowell as “gorgeous and ruthlessly ambitious.” She will certainly showcase her own “X-Factor” as a judge of FOX’s highly-anticipated reality singing competition. We’re willing to hit mute on Cowell’s and Paula Abdul’s bickering for a chance to see Scherzinger weekly.
