(11) NICOLE SCHERZINGER vs. (14) MADONNA
I always catch myself forgetting WHY Nicole Scherzinger is still a thing, since society as a whole seems to have rejected any music from her that wasn’t from the Pussycat Dolls (and even then…). And then I remember that she’s somehow gotten herself embroiled in The X-Factor in England, which I guess makes sense, because she is a person who MUST have an unquantifiable X-Factor that keeps her in the public eye.
At least she’s wearing a big hat?
Speaking of someone with an X-factor:
I do feel like after thirty years, it’s okay not to let your chest hang out anymore. Evolution isn’t so bad, Madge.
This outfit is desperately trying to evolve into a complete look:
Unfortunately, it ran out of time.
Quick! Get Arthur Doolittle to the church on time!
Sigh. If that fabric were a DRESS… but it’s not, which is why we’re here.
… in a weird way I like this more than the dumb Western wear she wore to perform with Miley Cyrus. This feels like confident Madonna; that felt like sad “REMEMBER ME? NOW I AM RIDING MILEY’S COATTAILS” Madonna.
Oh, look, a transition: Speaking of tails…
… actually, that might be more of a hip-mane.
Ugh. The only grill a person needs is the kind that makes a mean steak.

All the low seeds in this half pulled upsets, so we’re looking at some repeat outfits here. Some of these cautionary tales NEED to be retold, though. Like this one:
The moral of THAT story is NO.
Not much better. She really liked the white shirt/black bra look this year, for strange reasons.
That outfit is heinous, as are the shoes. Save the dress for a beach day, and the shoes for the tenth of Never.
Aspects of the following are pretty:
But doesn’t it feel like she didn’t really try that hard, and wasn’t particularly into it? She’s worn worse stuff in the past with a weird glee that almost sold it, so I don’t get what’s happening here — no jewelry to speak of is REALLY making me think she didn’t like this dress and couldn’t be bothered to help it.
This needs help… into a giveaway pile:
Oh, SARAH. Don’t let your macabre TV show take your SOUL.
But maybe don’t push so far in the other direction that you become a child bride.
This is too twee and blah and feh and meh.
And, I mean, I”m glad she’s wearing lipstick here, but that isn’t a dress. It’s a petticoat. We said it then; we stand by it now. And this limp thing just wants to go back to the dance, because “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” is on and some MAJOR swaying with a cute boy is in order.
