When Nicole Scherzinger joined the judges' panel for the first season of "The X Factor," the Pussycat Doll showed the world that her brain is more full of clichés than an '80s action movie. When Simon Cowell mimicked Nicole's profuse, gushing judging style, saying, "I believe in you. You believe in me. You transcend the universe. God is smiling on you. Life is a waterfall, and you are the ultimate rainbow," we were at first surprised to learn Nicole never actually said this string of sentences. The singer seemed more well-suited for "Dancing With the Stars," which she eventually won. The cheese factor there is unabashedly embraced in the form of spray tans, teeth-whitening procedures, and more sequins and fringe than the City of Las Vegas would know what to do with.
