Nicole Scherzinger today admitted it's "never too late" as she delivered her version of the "Buss It" Challenge, a trend that went viral in January 2021, but one the 42-year-old waited months to attempt. Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the pop singer and reality judge delivered her version, following the challenge's not-ready to ready look and proving that she actually looks sensational without the glam. The Masked Singer judge finished in a sizzling silver minidress, but the start was #basic. Check it out below.

'Never Too Late'

Scroll for the video. The "Buss It" Challenge made headlines earlier this year as celebrities from rapper Iggy Azalea to model Jordyn Woods gave it a go. Using Erica's "Buss It" track, the challenge involves quick edit action to show off a non done-up look, with the quick flip showcasing a dolled-up one. 

Nicole, whose looks have been both pared-down during her stunning recent Hawaii travels (and super glammed-up on TV), kicked off wearing thick-rimmed glasses while in a white bath towel wrapped around her.

Even showing off a shower cap as she padded around her bathroom in her towel, Nicole was seen checking her mirror before the dramatic change, this one bringing the former Pussycat Doll dropping it low at night, outdoors, and in a wowing glitter mini.

Nicole, who shook her stuff in high heels while wearing a full face of makeup, also rocked long flowing locks and glittery drop earrings, taking to her caption and writing: "Never too late" with a cry-face emoji. #bussitchallenge, she added. More photos after the video.

The challenge may be a 2021 one, but the music takes users back to the early 2000s.

"The challenge is to start off looking less than glamorous (many people have opted for dressing gowns or PJs here) to Nelly’s 2002 hit Hot In Herre, specifically the lyrics: ‘Checking your reflection and tellin’ your best friend like/”Girl, I think my butt getting big,'" Metro reports.

"Hot In Herre switches to Erica’s song which samples the line ‘Girl, I think my butt getting big’, at which point the video morphs into you, dolled up."

Fans React

Nicole's fanbase, adoring, was quick to comment. "You nailed it of course never too late , leave the best for last you are incredible," one user replied, with another telling the Hawaii-born star: "If I dropped like that i would need to be hospitalised immediately."

"Ayyye yes! Girl we need to do another twerk lesson💃🏾💃🏻❤️✨," a third wrote. Scherzinger continues to make headlines as the competition series she judges on trends on Twitter every week, also proving a talking point for her breath-taking Hawaii snaps.
