After emerging on Interscope/A&M in 2005, The Pussycat Dolls became the world's most successful girl group of the decade. Their track record of multi-platinum albums and top-charting singles includes the worldwide 9 million-selling PCD (2005, with "Don't Cha," "Stickwitu," and "Buttons"); and Doll Domination (2008, with "When I Grow Up," "I Hate This Part," and the Oscar and Grammy Award-winning "Jai Ho (You Are My Destiny)" from the movie Slumdog Millionaire). The Pussycat Dolls have won two Billboard Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, and toured with Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and The Black Eyed Peas.
Now on her own, the past two years have been a whirlwind for singer-songwriter-dancer-actor Nicole, culminating in "The X-Factor" host position. Nicole took home the Mirrorball Trophy victory as the tenth season winner of ABC-TV's top-rated Dancing With The Stars. She has also been featured as a guest on the CBS hit comedy series, How I Met Your Mother. The show's star Neil Patrick Harris went on to cast Nicole as Maureen in his direction of the Tony Award-winning rock musical Rent, alongside Wayne Brady and Vanessa Hudgens, staged at the Hollywood Bowl in August 2010.
