NBC's "The Sing-Off" has become a guilty pleasure at the Daily News (the semifinals are tonight at 8). And even though judge Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men is a local guy, judge Ben Folds ' "Lonely Avenue" is one of the best albums of the year, and one of our Human Resources bosses is obsessed with host Nick Lachey , Tattle decided to get the scoop on the show from judge Nicole Scherzinger . Why? because she was a TV talent-show winner on "Popstars" as a member of Eden's Crush , she got freaky as lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls , she dated a race-car driver, she has a role in the upcoming "Men in Black 3" (with Will Smith )

NEWARK, N.J. - At auditions filmed Thursday before a live audience for "The X Factor," Simon Cowell seemed to want people to move on from the shake-up on the show's judges panel replacing British pop singer Cheryl Cole with American counterpart Nicole Scherzinger. "It wasn't really such a big deal as everybody thought. . . . Truth is you've got to move on. It's about the contestants. They've got no interest in us bickering," Cowell said at the auditions in New Jersey. Earlier in the week, Fox and producers announced Cole was out and Scherzinger, who originally was signed on to co-host the show, would slide over to the judges table alongside Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid.

Lessons for young Tom as Dad lay dying Even Tom Cruise has emotional scars. Yes, even the Impossible Missionary himself. The star tells Esquire he was deeply affected when his pops, Thomas Cruise Mapother III, abandoned him after his parents' divorce. "He didn't try to help the family financially or spiritually, and I lived with the effects of the chaos," says Tom. A decade later, when Tom was fresh off the success of '83's Risky Business, he found out his dad was dying and visited him in the hospital.

No longer making beautiful music Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry are so darn beautiful, it provokes a stabbing pain in the brain to see the two of them together. So it might be just as well that the Oscar-winning actress and the Canadian he-model are splitting up after a painfully beautiful five or so years, according to RadarOnline.com. Aubry reportedly was the one to undo their together-icity, so unmanageable was their dyslexic age difference - he's 34 and she is 43. Let that be a lesson to the couple's 2-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry.

* THE X FACTOR. 8 tonight and tomorrow, Fox29. * REVENGE. 10 tonight, 6ABC. AFTER MONTHS of hype, it's time to ask yourself: Do I have what it takes to watch "The X Factor"? It's a commitment of time - four hours a week to start - and of faith, in a process we know to be only slightly more likely to produce lasting stars than "The Bachelor" is to produce lasting relationships. It's also a renewed commitment to that outspoken Brit Simon Cowell, who left "American Idol" to bring his bigger, possibly better talent show to America, the strange and wonderful country he seems determined to conquer (and with Paula Abdul once again at his side)
