Nicole Scherzinger was left red faced on her first day as a permanent judge on Britain’s ‘The X Factor’ after tripping in front of a crowd of 5,000.
The former Pussycat Doll beauty signed up for the mentor role on the UK version of the hit talent show earlier this month, but had a debut day to forget at the auditions in Newcastle, north England.
The clumsy singer was making her way to her seat on the panel in the Metro Radio Arena when she stumbled.
"You didn’t see that trip did you?" Contactmusic quoted her as telling fans.
When the audience laughed, she replied, "It’s my first day, show me some love."
Day one didn’t get easier for Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton’s girlfriend – she was booed by the crowd after clashing with fellow judge Gary Barlow over an audition that she called "shaky." (ANI)
