Nicole Scherzinger Performs ‘And I Am Telling You’ In Jakarta

Published: Monday 17th Dec 2012 by Sam

Fresh from wrapping The X Factor UK, the show’s “winning judge” Nicole Scheringer jetted out to Jakarta to flaunt her own talents at a private gig.

Backed by famed composer David Foster, the singer’s Indonesian set included a unique take on Jennifer Holliday’s ‘And I Am Telling You’ – a song  more recently popularised by Jennifer Hudson in 2006’s ‘Dreamgirls’.

How did the former Pussycat Doll fare? Find out below…

Needless to say, an “interesting” listen.

Since blazing onto the scene, Scherzinger has shown that she has the enviable ability to “do it all”. Textbook Pop or purposefully “roughed-up” such as her showing here , the 34 year old is a musical chameleon – a fact which should be celebrated.

As for the performance, it was generally solid and showcased a edgier layer to the singer’s voice. That said, we prefer our Nicole more on pitch and popping her particulars.

    Nicole has a very lovely voice, now with that said, NICOLE does not have enough soul in her voice. im not the biggest jhud fan as far as doing all types of songs, but this song is made for voices like hers, not opera turned pop singers. her voice isnt the prettiest, so when she does that growl that jen holiday does, it isnt a pleasant sound. sorry, if u dont got soul, please dont sing this song. the voice needs more husk to it and be hardy for this kinda song. and nicole doesnt have that

    Anyways, i dont blame her, i blame david foster for telling these girls they can sing songs they arent vocally capable of doing. (ashanti and that whitney song…)

    She has no soul in her voice whatsoever that was painful! She thinks way to highly of herself as a vocalist rofl, not just anyone can sing that song babe.

    I have always said this…. NICOLE SCHERZINGER HAS A RASPY, UGLY GRANDMA VOICE! She also sounds like a f****** screeching cat! She can’t sing LIVE! No soul and it it’s painful to hear.

  13. DJ December 18, 2012

    “…popping her particulars.” LMFAO!!! *DEAD*

  14. LOLO December 18, 2012

    that was horrible

  15. soulmusiclover December 18, 2012

    at the beginning, i was like yeaah sing it girl! but at the end i was like wtf? the thing is that a lot of singers think that screaming=powerful voice ,sanging, ! that’s not true! obviously she can scream lol but singing i don’t know about that! same with ashanti and many many rnb singers who think they can sing but actually they’re just being loud! i won’t mention any name because of the pshycho stans who run this site

  16. Dev December 18, 2012

    In her own words “no baby no” and in my worlds Hail to the no!!! She thinks she’s better than she is

  17. B December 18, 2012

    This is not the first time Nicole has tackled a song way too big for her voice, she seems to think she has a big voice like Mariah, Whitney, Celine, Jennifer Holliday, and Jennifer Hudson, but it’s not so. She needs to stop thinking she got this big ass voice cuz ya don’t hunty!
