Nicole Scherzinger ( ; born Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente; June 29, 1978) is an American recording artist, actress and television personality. After performing in rock band Days of the New and reaching one-hit wonder success with teen-pop girl group Eden's Crush, she signed with Interscope Records in 2003 as the lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls, a burlesque troupe turned-recording act. During her time as lead singer, the group released albums PCD (2005) and Doll Domination (2008); the former spawned the worldwide hits "Don't Cha", "Stickwitu" and "Buttons" as the latter also produced hits such as When I Grow Up", "I Hate This Part" and "Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)". The group's hiatus saw the release of multiple solo recordings including "Come to Me" and "Baby Love". Eventually, Scherzinger's return to the group was plagued by internal conflict that led to the disbandment of the group.
