Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger (born June 29, 1978 in Honolulu, Hawaii, United States) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and occasional actress who is best known as the lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls.

Previously, Scherzinger was a backing vocalist for the late-1990s rock group Days of the New, then she was part of reality TV girl group Eden’s Crush. After the disbandment of the group she joined The Pussycat Dolls and became the lead vocalist during the transition to a popular music group. So far, The Pussycat Dolls have released two albums, PCD and Doll Domination, with two supporting tours. More recently, in early 2010, Scherzinger became the winner of the tenth season of Dancing with the Stars.

Nicole Scherzinger was born on June 29, 1978, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Her father, Alfonso Valiente, is of Filipino descent, and her mother, Rosemary, is of Hawaiian, Ukrainian, and Russian descent. In an interview, Scherzinger said: “I’m Filipino-Russian-Hawaiian, but people think I’m from Pakistan”. Her mother Rosemary was eighteen at the time of Scherzinger’s birth and lived in an inner city neighborhood. Nicole’s parents separated when she was still a baby. Her maternal family moved to Louisville, Kentucky, when she was six years old, with her sister Ke’ala and her German-American stepfather Gary Scherzinger. Nicole met Nick Hexum, of 311, backstage at a Days of the New concert in 2000 or 2001.
