What would Men in Black 3 be without a resident hottie to snag the big screen spotlight?

Of course, we're talking about Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger who looked absolutely stunning today when she strutted down the Men in Black 3 red black carpet at the premiere in New York City.

But despite the highly-anticipated third installment, E!'s own Jason Kennedy and Alicia Quarles also had season two of the X-Factor on their mind.

So, is the former judge (who is not returning for round two) going to watch Britney Spears and Demi Lovato take over the judges' chairs?!

A little.

"I don't watch a lot of television. I'll try to watch it when I can though," the former judge told E! News on the black carpet.

Nicole announced back in January that she would not be returning as a judge for season two after sources told E! News that Simon Cowell wanted to take the show in a "different direction."

But that doesn't mean Nicole's not fully behind the two new judgesBritney Spears and Demi Lovato—who will take her and Paula Abdul's old spots in the judge's seats.  

"I wish them [Britney Spears and Demi Lovato] the best of luck, I'm excited for them," Nicole said to E! News.

Glad to know the former judge is rooting for the gals following in her footsteps! After months of negotiations, season two of the X Factor is finally in full swing with two fresh faces on board—Brit-Brit's even been tweeting about the auditionsin Austin this week, "So excited to be going to Austin this week for @TheXFactorUSA auditions! Will I see any of y'all there on Thurs or Fri?"

But we're not here to just talk about the boob tube! So, what else did Nicole spill at the premiere about her extraterrestrial MiB 3 cameo?

"She's kinda a badass cool chick," Nicole said of her character in the flick. "She's the girlfriend to the villain."

Sounds like a pretty cool part to play, right? We think so, and Nicole seems equally proud of her performance:

"I auditioned fair and square and then Barry [Sonnenfeld] told me they wanted me to do I sort of freaked out," Nicole told E! News. "I'm the biggest fan of Will [Smith] and Josh [Brolin]."

Congrats, Nicole! We can't wait to see you in full intergalactic fighting mode.
