From the very beginning, Nicole Scherzinger knew the members of A direction had that a thing.
Earlier this year, UK X Factor shared never-before-seen footage showing exactly how the boy band was formed by the judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walch and Nicole online. While many people had previously credited Simon with being the mastermind behind the pairing of the group, the clip revealed that the Pussycat dolls singer actually played a much bigger role than people thought.
During an appearance on SherriNicole shared her reaction when fans finally learned the truth behind the moment, admitting the outing was “a bit crazy.”
“Honestly, I never thought this footage would see the light of day,” the singer explained, adding with a laugh, “I thought Simon burned it.”
However, she noted, “It’s really cool that this came out, because what people actually see is me putting them together, the way my mind worked.”
