Nicole Scherzinger was born on June 29, 1978, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Her father, Alfonso Valiente, is of Filipino descent, and her mother, Rosemary, is of Hawaiian, Ukrainian, and Russian descent. In an interview, Scherzinger said: “I’m Filipino-Russian-Hawaiian, but people think I’m from Pakistan”. Her mother Rosemary was eighteen at the time of Scherzinger’s birth and lived in an inner city neighborhood. Nicole’s parents separated when she was still a baby. Her maternal family moved to Louisville, Kentucky, when she was six years old, with her sister Ke’ala and her German-American stepfather Gary Scherzinger. Nicole met Nick Hexum, of 311, backstage at a Days of the New concert in 2000 or 2001.
Nicole Scherzinger Biography
As she later recalled, Scherzinger’s life took a dramatic turn not long after moving, when she was given a cassette tape of Whitney Houston. After listening to the songs, Scherzinger says she knew immediately she wanted to be a singer. “My parents had no money, but they got me this player and Whitney’s album,” she recalled. “That was it for me. From that moment on I wanted to sing. Her voice was so powerful; every note she sang just felt like the truth.”
After that, Scherzinger made performance a focus of her life. She eventually attended a performing arts high school and later enrolled at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, where she studied theater and dance.
In 2003, Scherzinger stepped in as the lead singer for the recently recast group the Pussycat Dolls. With their new front-woman, the Dolls soon climbed the charts: The group’s first record, PCD, released in 2005, featured hits like “Don’t Cha,” “Stickwitu” and “Buttons.” The album achieved double-platinum status in the United States and sold more than 9 million copies worldwide.
Outside of the group, Scherzinger raised her own profile by performing with a range of other recording artists, including P. Diddy (Sean “Puffy” Combs), Timbaland and 50 Cent.
In 2008, the Pussycat Dolls released a second album, Doll Domination, which featured hits like “When I Grow Up” and “I Hate This Part.” While the record failed to match its predecessor’s success, it still sold more than 5 million copies.
Scherzinger also jumped back onto the small screen in 2010, performing as a contestant and eventual series winner on the ABC program Dancing with the Stars. She later took to the stage and starred in the Neal Patrick Harris production of Rent at the Hollywood Bowl.
In 2011, Scherzinger was named as a permanent replacement for Cheryl Cole as a judge on the American version of The X Factor, along with fellow panelists Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid.
“I’m the luckiest person to get a front-row ticket to the ‘Simon and Paula show,'” gushed Scherzinger after being named to the series. The singer, who released Killer Love (her first solo studio album), that same year, added, “My music is the driving engine, and The X Factor is where I can give back to the contestants—pay it forward, since I got my start on reality shows. I’m ready to take it all on.”
