The 'Boomerang' singer stunned (as per usual) as she walked the red carpet at the O2 Arena in London on a chilly Wednesday night (19 February).
Last time we saw pictures of Nicole she was enjoying a romantic Valentine's visit to Italy with on-again boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, but tonight she was going solo at the star-studded event.
Nicole's appearance at the Brits comes amid speculation she might quit her role as a judge on X Factor to focus on her new music.
A newspaper claimed recently Nicole made the "heartbreaking" decision to walk away from the show, while show boss Simon Cowell had tongues wagging when he tweeted: "Nicole will always be a part of the X factor family. Now signed to Sony as an artist. Thank you Nicole for everything."
So far Nicole has kept quiet.
If she has quit X Factor, however, she definitely won't be short of things to do. Not only has Nicole signed on with Missguided to launch her own fashion collection, she's also just signed a brand new multi-album deal with RCA Records!
Fans of Nicole will be pleased to know the lead single will be released this summer, with an album to follow, according to Music Week.
RCA Records' president Colin Barlow said: "We are delighted that Nicole has joined the Sony family. She truly is one of the greatest singers in the world and we are very excited by the record she is currently making."
