The 'Right There' singer admits nothing could have prepared her for what she went through on the show.

Nicole Scherizinger has spoken out about her time on The X Factor USA following her recent departure from the series.

The 'Don't Hold Your Breath' singer confessed that she gave "110 percent" to her judging role and is fully aware of all the controversy surrounding her exit.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, she said: "All I know is that I gave 110 percent to that show. I know everybody’s talking about it, they're saying good, bad, they love me or hate me, but the one thing you can't say is that I didn't give it my all."

The former Pussycat Doll left the series alongside fellow judge Paula Abdul last month and has no regrets as she looks to move on with her career.

"I had a wonderful experience on the show. I loved being a part of my X Factor family. Nothing could obviously prepare me for everything I had to go through, all the emotions and stuff, but I have no regrets.

"I've always believed in never looking back and just moving forward and I’ve got an amazing year to look forward to.”

Meanwhile, Simon Cowell spoke about the possibilities of replacing her and Paula's vacant positions on the show recently admitting Katy Perry and Madonna could take centre stage.
