After it was revealed that Nicole Scherzinger played a pivotal role in the formation of The X Factor’s boy band One Direction, she has broken her silence on social media.
Last week, to celebrate One Direction’s 12th anniversary, The X Factor’s official Twitter page released unseen footage of the band’s formation.
The tweet was captioned, “If you’ve waited 12 YEARS to find out exactly how @onedirection came to be.”
The footage showed Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole deciding who should move into the Judges’ Houses on The X Factor season 7.

She explained: “They have just the right look and charisma on stage. I think they’ll be really great together in a boy band.
“They are like little stars. You can’t get rid of little stars, so you put them all together.”
