Nicole Scherzinger admitted she struggled with the Birmingham accent when the 'X Factor' auditions stopped there last week, but she was looking much more at home as they arrived in London on Wednesday.
The former Pussycat Doll seemed to have made pals with a Pearly King and Queen and handily brought them along to pose with her on the red carpet outside the ExCel centre before the auditions kicked off.
Nicole had gone hell for leather with her outfit too, donning a leather coat-dress with killer red heels.
Her look was much different to the previous days', as she was seen looking more like former co-judge Tulisa in her gangsta get-up as she went about her business.
After they have seen another batch of wannabes in London, they will head off to Cardiff for the last of the 'judges' room' auditions, before touring the country again to see how the hopefuls cope with an arena audition.
