Former Pussycat Doll and current X Factor UK judge Nicole Scherzinger reveals that she sang the majority of the songs on both of the Pussycat Dolls albums.
Speaking on a Behind The Music special for VH1, Nicole revealed she “probably did 95 per cent” of the singing “on my own” for the band’s debut album PCD.
”I love those girls. They’re like my sisters. But people don’t even know the whole story. They have no idea. I was in the centre because I was singing.”
Nicole went on: “I hope I don’t get in trouble for the stuff that I say but I’ll never forget I finished the album, PCD, and Ron (executive producer Ron Fair) and I brought the girls into the studio and we played it for them. It was the first time they’d ever heard the music.”
“Do you understand what I’m saying? We played the album for the Pussycat Dolls. It was the first time they’d ever heard the songs.”
Ron Fair, producer, quoted as saying: “Melody sang a bit here and there, but the records were Nicole, with the exception of an occasional ad-lib.”

Kurt Angle won Olympic gold in 1996 before going on to enjoy huge success with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and then TNA Impact wrestling. Now he is going back, at least temporarily, trying to make the US team for the 2012 Olympics.
Should he make the team he will be, at 43, six years older than anyone else to have made the US squad.
It is 16 years since he last had an amateur match, and going from that lengthy hiatus to Olympian is surely a pipe dream. Why attempt it and why now?
“I had to give it a lot of thought, it didn’t just come out of my head and say I’m going to try for Olympics,” he says.
“What are my chances of making the team? Slim to none, I’m not going to lie but, if I can look you in the eye and say I have a chance that’s more than enough. That’s worth training five hours a day to get ready for the trials and for the biggest event of all, the Olympics.”
