The singer was signed up to appear on the show’s inaugural series in 2011 but she only lasted a year in the role before being dumped alongside Paula Abdul and host Steve Jones.
Simon Cowell called her stint on the show “wishy-washy”, but speaking to Marie Claire, an embattled Scherzinger said that she disagrees. She said:
“I did a great job with my contestants. I still brought ratings to the damn show. Everybody was talking about it – that’s not a bad thing. I’m a very sincere and honest person, and if you think that’s boring you can turn off and watch something else.”
The former Pussycat Doll continued: “I’m not going to change just to try to fit in. I’m very experienced in my art, and in music, and in what we’re looking for. That ‘boring’ crap is hogwash. You try to do my job. And if you still think it’s boring, then check out my music videos on YouTube because that’s not boring.”
