NICOLE Scherzinger has most definitely got the X Factor.
The Pussycat Dolls singer will be noticeably absent from the judges’ table when The X Factor returns to our screens later this year.
But that doesn’t mean the 40-year-old has moved away from the spotlight, as she’s been posting a bevy of sizzling snaps on her Nicole Scherzinger Instagram.
However, the Hawaii-born beauty took a break from social media last night, when she attended the star-studded Unicef Summer Gala in Italy.
Flaunting her bronzed goddess status, the body confident siren looked red hot in a crimson ensemble.
Making her toned body the main event, Nicole wrapped her upper body in a teeny-satin sheer crop top.
The one-shouldered number highlighted the songstress’ abs of steel, which took pride of place as she offered a smouldering glare to the camera.
Not content with showing off her ripped stomach, the buxom babe also showcased her sculpted legs in a risqué high-slit skirt.
With her long, raven locks flowing in loose curls down her front, Nicole appeared to be in her element as she faced the photographers head-on.
“Nicole and her sister are absolutely stunning”

Adding a touch of sparkle to her ensemble, the starlet wore long-drop diamond earrings and metallic high heels.
Nicole’s bedazzled night out in Italy comes shortly after she celebrated her younger sister Keala Scherzinger’s birthday in the US state of Tennessee.
The former TV judge wowed fans when she stripped down to a cut-out bikini alongside her blonde sibling, who sported a floral swimsuit.
Captioning the shot, shared with her 3.6 million Instagram followers, Nicole wrote: “Happy Birthday to the better half of me. Love you so much, sissy.”
Commenting on the post, one viewer marvelled: “Beautiful and gorgeous, girls. Love it,” alongside several hearts.
Another remarked: “Absolutely stunning — both of you.”
Nicole and Keala are half-sisters, sharing the same mum, Rosemary Elikolan.
Keala’s biological dad Gary Scherzinger adopted Nicole when she was a child, and she took his surname.
Singer-turned-TV babe Nicole often posts snaps of her sibling, who has three children, on her social media platforms.
