Answering viewer's questions in the run up to the new series, the former Pussycat Doll was asked what was new on this year's show.
"Two words - Sharon Osbourne," she replied.
"She is outrageous and she is a riot and we are all having a blast. It's getting a little crazy."
Sharon famously quit the show in 2008, but earlier this year she was revealed as the replacement for outgoing panellist Tulisa Contostavlos.
This series of The X Factor will see hopefuls first having to face the judges in a small audition room before performing for the public on stage at Wembley Arena to win a place in the bootcamp stage.
And Nicole explained that she prefers one to the other when it comes to finding new talent.
"I definitely prefer the auditions in a room; we get to give a real honest critique, so in the room it's all about the contestant and their audition."
Nicole and Sharon will be joined at the judges table by Take That singer Gary Barlow and music manager Louis Walsh.
The new series of The X Factor starts at 8pm on Saturday 31 August on UTV.
