Is that a sea urchin? X Factor viewers baffled by Scherzinger’s dress
The judge’s dress was covered in spikes.
Nicole Scherzinger’s X Factor final dress had viewers scratching their heads, with some suggesting it looked like a sea urchin and others wondering if she had dressed as a Game Of Thrones prop.
The former Pussycat Doll took her seat at the judges’ table on Sunday night in a black dress with spikes all over the shoulder.
And viewers did not let the fact it was the final stop them going online to express their confusion about the choice of outfit.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Is Nicole aware her dress has become a magnetic field science experiment with iron filings attached?”

“I love how Nicole showed up to tonight’s #xfactor dressed as The Iron Throne,” said another.
“No Sea Urchins were harmed in the making of Nicole’s dress tonight,” joked another viewer on Twitter.
Another urged: “Someone tell Nicole she’s transforming into a porcupine please!!”
Others suggested she had been inspired by wrestling villains the Legion Of Doom.
Many people thought the dress had something to do with straws.
“Nicole doing her bit for the environment by recycling plastic straws for her outfit,” said one.
