The X Factor judge, 35, visited the beach with two friends earlier this week and while on the sand they suddenly felt the urge to break into the latest dance craze.
Nicole was wearing a striking monochrome two-piece, which she teamed with her favourite red baseball cap, and her Pussycat Doll skills were definitely out in full force.
Sharing a collage of four pictures of herself and her pals, Nicole tweeted: "#teamtwerkcakes came out to play! Heeey, Team twerk caaakes! #paddleboardtwerking #goofballz."
Following her recent holiday back home in Hawaii, Nicole is now catching up with friends in California before The X Factor live shows kick off this autumn.
While in Los Angeles, she met with former High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens for a joint workout.
Posing for a picture with the 24-year-old actress, Nicole told followers: "No better way to start the day than w/a workout! Me & my girl @vanessahudgens @soulcycle #sweatitout."
