Scherzinger: I sang the Dolls songs
Nicole Scherzinger has apparently claimed she did nearly of all the singing in the Pussycat Dolls.
The former band member, now working on her solo career and her new role as an X Factor judge, said she "probably did 95 per cent" of the singing "on my own" for the band's debut album PCD, reports Us Weekly.
Speaking on a Behind The Music special for VH1, the 34-year-old said: "I love those girls. They're like my sisters. But people don't even know the whole story. They have no idea. I was in the centre because I was singing."
Nicole went on: "I hope I don't get in trouble for the stuff that I say but I'll never forget I finished the album, PCD, and Ron (executive producer Ron Fair) and I brought the girls into the studio and we played it for them. It was the first time they'd ever heard the music.
"Do you understand what I'm saying? We played the album for the Pussycat Dolls. It was the first time they'd ever heard the songs."
Fair also said Nicole did plenty more singing than her bandmates - Melody Thornton, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar.
He was quoted as saying: "Melody sang a bit here and there, but the records were Nicole, with the exception of an occasional ad-lib."
