Yes, I know….everyone knows that Nicole is one of the judges on the X-Factor. It’s common knowledge and lots of you watch the show. I’m not one who watches the show because I’m over singing competitions, especially those that include Simon Cowell. I only have room for AI and the Voice.
ANYWAY, the reason why I decided to pick up the “Where are they now” method of killing time between seasons is because I found this video from this past weekend of Nicole singing at the Royal Variety Show in London. Singing Opera…as in Christine from Phantom of the Opera. When Nicole said she is a trained singer, she wasn’t kidding – she KILLED this. No lip syncing, per one of her Phantoms. Perhaps all future XF contestants should watch this and then not even try out if they can’t measure up. This lady is more than a singer from a girl band. Of course, it helps if you just love musical theater and Phantom of the Opera. I actually get misty.
