X Factor 2013: Nicole Scherzinger nearly reduced to tears by Sharon Osbourne as show shapes up to be “The most brutal yet!”
Fans of The X Factor will know that this year’s auditions kicked off in Glasgow this week, and of course, returned judge Sharon Osbourne was apparently as flamboyant as ever as she “hogged” the limelight alongside fellow judges Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger…
However, it’s been claimed that Nicole was “nearly reduced to tears” by outspoken Sharon’s antics on the first day of filming as she “struggled to get a word in edgeways!”
And as it’s been revealed that during a ten-hour long auditions session, more than half of the hopefuls who tried out were summarily sent packing in what The Sun’s TV Biz describes as “the most brutal” series yet.
The paper adds, “At one point Sharon cackled so hard at a rubbish singer she FELL OFF her chair.”
A show insider said, “Sharon certainly made the most of her comeback.
“She sat in the middle of the panel and had something flamboyant to say about every act.”
The source added, “Nicole enjoyed being the wacky one who would say silly things and get loads of attention last year.
“But in Glasgow she struggled to get into the limelight as Sharon was always hogging it.
“Nicole likes Sharon but has got to raise her game or she’ll end up on the cutting room floor.”
The judges are headed to Birmingham to film auditions on Monday, and as per the show’s new format, the successful wannabes will be invited back to audition for a second in front of an audience.
