Hey! She wasn't lying!
After last night's X Factor, during which Simon Cowell remarked that a less-than-stellar female contestant reminded him of what would assume a 20-year-old Nicole Scherzinger would bring to an audition and she subsequently put him in his place by not only telling him - but also showing him - that she actually performed Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You on the 2001 reality competition Popstars, we got to wondering if we could find footage from that fateful day…and boy, did we ever!
Check out a 22-year-old Nicole seriously showing off her vocal chops, just as she claimed to last night, on the reality competition (above)!
Good lord, doe she have some pipes on her or WHAT?!
But gurl - you've come a LOOONG way from that outfit! Ha!
P.S. That poor girl after her did not stand a chance!
