Moments after the official announcement was made Nicole tweeted, "I’m so excited to join the UK X Factor family. It's where I got my start, so it feels great to come full circle. I can’t wait to see what talent the UK has to offer and to help inspire and bring out the best in these artists."
In other exciting news, the 33-year-old has landed a Teen Choice Award nomination for Female Choice Movie Scene Stealer for her short villain role in "Men In Black III".
After catching wind of the nomination, Nicole tweeted, "Awesome! Thank u for the Teen Choice nomination! Pls vote Choice Movie Scene Stealer Female".
