While the CW gears up for the new season of Pussycat Dolls Present,
Nicole Scherzinger is gearing up for the release of her first solo album Her Name is Nicole
, and she is making the rounds to help stir up the buzz.
In a switch from the glitzy larger appearances she’s made at Fashion Rocks and the VMA’s, Nicole also recently performed in a smaller, more intimate setting.
Nicole performed at Soho Revue Bar for a small group of industry insiders. She performed four songs from her upcoming album, current single "Baby Love," NeYo-produced "Happily Ever After," "Just Say Yes," and her possible next single "Super Villain." An initial review seems positive, saying the songs “were convincingly good.”
If you weren’t one of the industry insiders to witness that show, never fear. The Pussycat Dolls’ Lead Doll will be making plenty of appearances over the next few weeks.
She’s appearing on the Ellen Degeneres show on Wednesday, and making an appearance at the KIIS FM Homecoming on Saturday at the Honda Center in Anaheim.
After that, she’s off to Europe for a whirlwind series of appearances. She’ll be appearing on the MTV Europe Music Awards on Thursday, November 1; a U.K. show on Friday, November 2; and a show in Germany on Saturday, November 3.
After a couple weeks’ (which one hopes includes a break for the busy performer), she is appearing back in the U.S. on the American Music Awards on Sunday, November 18. That will show on ABC at 8pm.
While this schedule seems like quite a lot to handle, it would appear that Nicole is loving the chance to perform on her own after the success with the Pussycat Dolls. She recently posted a blog entry after one of her performances, and in it she said, Tonight seeing all those fans screaming and singing along with all those smiles on their faces...made everything real to me....all these years and its now coming together, My gratitude is endless. Never [lose] hope and trust in the music to come.”
