Heading home from the studio after completing her judging duties for the evening, Nicole Scherzinger left "The X-Factor" stage at Fountain Studios in London, England on Saturday (October 13).

The former Pussycat Doll sported a casual glam look, in a plaid vest and messy bun, as she gave a quick wave to the waiting photographers.

Looking forward to the night’s performances, Nicole tweeted, “Counting down to the show tonight @TheXFactor can't wait to see my boys performances! #teamnicole.”

Although the 34-year-old beauty was eager to get the show on the road, Scherzinger was in for a shock, as one of her contestants suddenly collapsed after the live show.

According to various reports, finalist James Arthur was escorted out to an ambulance by Nicole after suffering “an anxiety attack” due to giving “everything [he] had” to his performance
