Abs of steel: Nicole Scherzinger flaunted her super taunt abs and tiny waist in a knitted midriff top as she left her South Beach Hotel to attend the Miami auditions of the X Factor yesterday
Paula Abdul showed off her slim pins in a pair of skin-tight jeans at the Miami X Factor auditions the day before.
So not to be outdone by her fellow judge, Nicole Scherzinger, 32, went one step further yesterday by flaunting her super toned abs in a knitted midriff top.
The pint-sized former Pussycat Doll's waist looked tiny in her pale blue Ksubi skinny leg jeans, paired with the revealing bat-winged attire as she made her way to the South Beach auditions.
Accessorising with a simple pair of Havianas flip-flops and a cream designer handbag, Nicole wore her hair down and applied minimal make-up to her complexion.
The singer appears to have lost some weight in the lead up to her newly appointed role of judge on the reality talent show.
Her stomach was flatter than ever and her waist appeared even more slim-line.

Nicole has made sure to wow the X Factor crowds with her array of fashionable and flattering outfits, since auditions began for the hit show earlier this month.
Yesterday she opted for a bang-on trend drape dress in one of the season's hottest colours - cornflower blue.
The singer also ensured that she optimised her sensational legs by elongating them with nude shoes.

Judging by the grin permanently plastered on her face, Nicole continues to look mighty please with herself.
The brunette who replaced Cheryl Cole as judge on the hit show has been unable to wipe the smile off her face since picking up the reigns from the fired British pop star.
Cheryl has gone to ground since she was unceremoniously dumped from her judging job on the American show.
But she did send flowers to Nicole and Paula last week.

Cheryl however may be alarmed by reports this week, from Scherzinger's former manager, claiming that Cheryl was only ever used as hype.
Jeff Haddad, who managed the former Pussycat Doll for 13 years, has alleged that Nicole was always going to be on the panel.
He claims that he had long discussions with Simon Cowell and Scherzinger was always a frontrunner for the judging panel job.
‘In my opinion, Simon always wanted Nicole as a judge. There was never a question that she wouldn’t get it’, Jeff told Heat Magazine.

He added: ‘Nicole was always going to be on that judging panel and Cheryl was just being used as a cog in the wheel to cause hype and publicise the show.’
The magazine reported that Mr Haddad doesn’t recall Cheryl’s name being mentioned during talks about the role.
After managing the star for over a decade, Haddad was apparently given the axe by Nicole shortly before her U.S. X Factor contract was signed, the magazine reported.
But in his opinion he said that Cheryl’s accent wouldn’t have been the issue and was rather an excuse for publicity.
Regarding being allegedly fired by Nicole, he said: ‘If you serve as someone’s manager and develop their career for over a decade and that person didn’t pay you after landing the biggest TV show of their career, what does that tell you?’
An X Factor spokesperson dismissed the ex-managers claims of a publicity stunt as 'complete and utter rubbish'.
Meanwhile, Simon Cowell has revealed that he will broadcast the footage of Cheryl Cole during her short stint on the US X Factor.
Her appearances at the two audition venues she attended are said to be shown when the series is aired in September.
Cowell told Sky News: ‘We will show it. I mean it’s reality TV. There’s no point lying about it. It is what it is.’
He added: ‘It wasn’t really such a big deal as everybody thought. We have a lot of other shows. Something happened so we said, ‘Do you want to return to the UK show? ‘ and she said no.
‘The we offered her the show back and I don’t think she wanted to come back… Truth is you’ve got to move on. It’s about the contestants. They’ve got no interest in us bickering.’
