Nicole Scherzinger’s X Factor final dress had viewers scratching their heads, with some suggesting it looked like a sea urchin and others wondering if she had dressed as a Game Of Thrones prop.
The former Pussycat Doll took her seat at the judges’ table during the final show, which saw boy band Rak-Su crowned as the winners – but it was the black dress with spikes all over the shoulder that got a lot of people talking.
As the show went on, viewers took to Twitter to hilariously express their opinions on the dress with some making references to David Attenborough wildlife documentary Blue Planet II which aired at the same time on BBC.
‘No Sea Urchins were harmed in the making of Nicole’s dress tonight,’ bantered one viewer on Twitter. Another quipped during the show: ‘Someone tell Nicole she’s transforming into a porcupine please!!’
‘Is Nicole aware her dress has become a magnetic field science experiment with iron filings attached?’ wrote another.
Making a reference to HBO’s hit show Game Of Thrones’ famous throne of spiky swords a social media user wrote: ‘I love how Nicole showed up to tonight’s #xfactor dressed as The Iron Throne.’
