Since X Factor's live shows have kicked off, Taylor Swift, Pharrell, Jessie J, Maroon 5, One Republic and Ed Sheeran have all graced the stage.

This Sunday (2 November), John Legend and judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini will be taking to the stage. However, it has since been confirmed that Cheryl's performance will be pre-recorded.

Reveal was invited to Nicole's live music showcase in London earlier this month, which was attended by X Factor star Jahméne Douglas and Hollywood legend Samuel L. Jackson, and we can confirm that her performance of 'Run' was spine-tingling!

'Run', which is taken from Nicole's new album Big Fat Lie, is a power ballad which displays the former Pussycat Doll's full vocal range. The single is a follow-up to 'Your Love' and 'On The Rocks'.

Speaking about her album, Nicole says: "The album title was inspired by the song 'Big Fat Lie' which has a lot of meaning to me. We all go through our own battles and hard times and a big fat lie is about how we mask what's really going on.

"This album is about me revealing some of my personal struggles and facing them head on. Once you realise something is a lie you are on your way to the truth, where you will find your own clarity, peace and acceptance."

Big Fat Lie is Nicole's second album since 2011's Killer Love, but it is her first release with Sony Music after signing a deal with RCA Records in February.

'Run' will be released on 15 December.
