Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough: Sayers Nightclub Duo

Posted Friday June 8, 2012 12:13 PM GMT

Enjoying a night out on the town, Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough tried to dodge cameras while leaving Sayers Nightclub together in Hollywood, California on Thursday (June 7).

The former "Dancing With The Stars" partners - who were once rumored to have been dating - sat in a car together with a couple friends and looked a little tense as they glanced around the crowd forming around their vehicle.

Before heading to the nightclub, Nicole was hard at work tweeting, "In studio...just finished writing a #smashterpiece, #BANGER, #smash-ola, #HiT, #ninja-banger, #wedidit!"

Scherzinger is reportedly in talks to become a judge for the "X-Factor" UK on a full-time basis after recording a couple episodes for the London show.
