Is ‘The Masked Singer’s Nicole Scherzinger The Most Underrated Judge Ever?

Nicole Scherzinger has made a big mark in the entertainment world. She was a member of the Pussycat Dolls (one of the best-selling girl groups of all time!) receiving many accolades for her time performing in the West End, and of course judged several talent shows, including both the US and UK versions of The X Factor and the American version of The Masked Singer.

But earlier this week, one Twitter user asked a very important question.

How does someone with such strong superstar qualities as Nicole always seem to end up flying under the radar???

Seriously, when you take some time to take a closer look back at what she’s accomplished, you’ll be shocked that despite all of her talent and charisma, she’s not nearly as appreciated by the masses than she deserves to be!

Fortunately the user is here to help us remember and bask in the awe of Nicole and her many accomplishments, including but not limited to roller-skating stunts, discovering her puppetry skills on celebrity variety competition I Can Do That (which she went on to win) and nailing her routines on Dancing With the Stars (which she also won).

Nicole has done so many cool things in her career (and made even the most complex of them see effortless!) that even a twitter thread couldn’t cover it all. So here are a few more items on her list of accomplishments!

Her Own Music

Nicole was the clear breakout star from the Pussycat Dolls, and eventually went on to have a solo career. But her musical talents don’t stop at performance; she altered the hit song “Jai Ho” to its pop version, “Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)”.

West End Stardom

Nicole starred as Grizabella in the London production of Cats, and went on to be nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical at the 2015 Laurence Olivier Awards. What a voice!

Other Accolades

While she didn’t take home that aforementioned Olivier statue, Nicole has received several awards throughout her career, some of which include “Outstanding Achievement in Music” at the Asian Awards and “Artist Of The Year” by the Harvard foundation in 2013.

Putting It All Together

It felt like the stars aligned when Nicole was cast as Penny in the TV remake of Dirty Dancing, the perfect role to showcase her abilities! While the production itself received disastrous reviews, Nicole managed to escape practically unscathed, most likely being the one aspect of the show to rise above the rest of it in the eyes of critics and viewers alike.

Paying It Forward

In addition to all of the other projects she’s taken on over the years, Nicole serves as an ambassador for the Special Olympics and UNICEF. She’s even visited Guyana as part of her work with the latter!

In conclusion? We all need to stop sleeping on Nicole Scherzinger.
