Nicole Scherzinger certainly knows how to make an entrance. The X Factor judge pulled out all the stops to make a fashionable arrival at the Judge's Houses this year.
Stripped down to a blue and white crochet Kiini bikini, the 38-year-old looked absolutely sensational as she arrived at her base in the south of France on a jet-ski.
With her golden-tinted tresses left loose in tousled waves, the songstress concealed her eyes behind a designer pair of reflective sunglasses, while her plump pout was highlighted in a bold orange shade.

"Bonjour Boys," she excitedly told her category. "Bienvenue a la South of France. I think I might have the winner of The X Factor 2016 right here but today is play time, so who wants to have some fun in the water?!"
Nicole, who is mentoring the boys, selected Christian Burrows, Freddy Parker, James Hughes, Matt Terry, Nate Simpson and Niall Sexton for her category.
Shortly after arriving at the house, Terry said: "We did some filming where she went jet-skiing with us but when she came to meet us she walked out of the water like some sort of Bond girl. She looked so hot, I thought I was going to pass out!

"I haven't had the chance to speak to her just one-on-one. It's easier when you’ve got the boys around you because it's not as scary. I know the minute I have some time on my own with her I'm not going to be able to get my words out, she's that beautiful."
Ryan was also full of praise for his judge, saying: "I'm really excited, she's a great person. She's young and she knows my style of music so it's great she's there.
We did some filming with her yesterday on a jet-ski and we were all saying she looks like a Bond girl. She's hot."
