It has been reported that legendary musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is hoping to get The X Factor USA judge Nicole Scherzinger to join him on the judging panel of his new show. Andrew has previously found new stars to play roles in Oliver!, The Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music and Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and is now looking for someone to play the lead role in Jesus Christ Superstar.
An insider explained, "Andrew is obsessed with Nicole, he thinks the world of her. As soon as he got the nod his new show was going to happen, Nicole was his number one target. He's got a great working relationship with her and Nicole hugely respects his work."
Andrew Lloyd Webber previously worked with the BBC for his reality talent search shows but they have now parted ways and he will be bringing his new show to ITV. As well as wanting Nicole Scherzinger to be one of the new judges in his search for the new Jesus Christ Superstar, it is also believed that Andrew Lloyd Webber has cast Nicole in the role of Mary Magdalene in the movie adaptation of Jesus Christ Superstar.
