Blue Peter: I Can't Believe Nicole Scherzinger Used to be Shy!
We caught up with Nicole Scherzinger when she came down to the Blue Peter studio chat about all things X factor and her tour. Here are her answers to the questions everyone wants to ask, some of which came from you guys on the CBBC Messageboards:
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
My superpower would be that my singing would bring healing and love.
If Blue Peter was coming round to yours for dinner, what would you make for us?
I'd make chicken and dumplings with a sweet potato casserole...it's cold here at the moment so it'd warm you all up!
If you were an animal, what would you be?
I'd be a horse, a cheetah or a black panther.
What was the last song that you downloaded?
It was 'Pumped Up Kicks' by Foster the People.
What pursuaded you to become a singer? - asked by PearlWhizzingCheetah
When I was about five, I was really shy and awkward. Then I heard 'The Greatest Love of All' by the singer Whitney Houston and from then on I just wanted to be a singer.
What would you spend your last £5 on?
I'd buy sweets and bubbles for my nieces. I've got three nieces - the twins are 2 years old and the other is 3.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I can do brilliant impersonations, singing anyone from The Cranberries to Britney Spears.
What would you like for Christmas?
I'd like some time off work to spend with my family!
If you could be any other celebrity, who would you be? - asked by AquaCreativeMandarin
Definitely Will Ferrell! He always looks like he's having so much fun!
What did you want to be when you were younger? - asked by CrimsonFlyingLadybird
Because I'm from Hawaii, I really wanted to be a surfer!
What is your favourite TV show?
My favourite TV show is X Factor, of course!
