Pussycat Dolls beauty Nicole Scherzinger admits she would love for Louis Walsh to appear on the judging panel of the US 'X Factor'
Nicole Scherzinger wants Louis Walsh to judge the American 'X Factor'.
The Pussycat Dolls singer - who has reportedly been offered a role on the judging panel of the US pop star search show after impressing bosses with her recent stint on the British version - thinks the chemistry between Louis and Simon Cowell is key to the show's success in the States.
She said: "The US public would love the relationship Simon and Louis have. It would be sad to break them up - they might be a bit lost without each other."
Nicole also revealed how the 58-year-old boy band manager encouraged her to try and wind Simon up during her time as a guest judge on the show, when Dannii Minogue was on maternity leave and Cheryl Cole ill with malaria.
She explained: "Simon's really fun when you argue with him or if you put through someone he really doesn't like. Louis does that for fun - and I soon found out it was fun as well!"
However, Nicole believes Louis and Simon, 50, need a feisty woman like Katy Perry to keep them under control on the judging panel.
She added to Now magazine: "If you had those two you'd need strong women, that's for sure! Katy Perry was really great and she handled the boys well."
