Nicole Scherzinger Talks Split At X Factor Auditions
Wannabe pulls at Scherzy's heartstrings with break-up song...
The wannabe's self-penned song - about feeling alone after a split - reportedly brought Nicole's own pain to the surface.
According to The Sun, she told the singer: "It pulled on my heartstrings. It sucks doesn't it? Really sucks."
Scherzy added: "It's so depressing but it's so good. I would buy your album."
Nicole is said to be "heartbroken" over her split with the Formula One ace but sources say she is "determined to get on with things".
An insider told the paper: "Throughout the day she was showered with presents from contestants after celebrating her 35th birthday during the week.
"She really appreciated that and she even impressed her fellow judges by doing the splits during a break in auditions."
In other XF news, there's a rumour that the closed auditions could be making a return this year.
According to the Metro the only live auditions in 2013 will take place in London. Instead, wannabes up and down the country will perform in closed auditions - singing only for the judges - and will then need to pass a live audition in London before reaching boot camp.
