Nicole Scherzinger has revealed the Pussycat Dolls comeback left the group battered and bruised as they fell off the stage during their epic performance on X-Factor: Celebrity.

For those who missed it – for reasons we could never possible fathom – the five-piece, who have reunited without Melody Thornton, performed a medley of their biggest hits, jumped off the stage into a pit of back-up dancers, got doused in water and threw themselves on the floor like crazed kittens.

Honestly, it was a ride.

However, there were dangers behind pulling off such a spectacle, as Nicole laid out.

“We had to rehearse it; it’s so dangerous. We got scratches and bruises from that,’ the 41-year-old confessed while speaking to Australia’s Nova 96.6 radio station.

Saturday’s performance was met with huge raise from PCD fans as the ladies undeniably slayed.
