Nicole Scherzinger is an American recording artist, actress, and television personality. She portrayed Grizabella in the 2014 London West End run of Cats.
Sherzinger had been intended to further play Grizabella in the 2016 Broadway Revival, however she publicly chose to continue her TV career rather than take the role. This has led to a public backlash from Andrew Lloyd Webber, as he suggested she would have received a Tony award for the performance. Nicole replied that since the contract was never signed, she was free to take other work.
