VIDEO: Nicole Scherzinger sings her support for Manchester United star

Van Persie United 2

In a bizarre development, X Factor judge and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger sang her support for Manchester United's Robin van Persie live on radio this week.

It's not everyday that an American pop star sings their support of a team or a player in the Barclays Premier League, but that's exactly what happened when Nicole Scherzinger appeared on Key 103, a Manchester-based radio station.

Scherzinger was on air with Key's Adam Catterall, who hosts the station's 'home run' show.

During Catterall's show, the duo broke into song, performing re-written lyrics to the Pussycat Dolls' hit song 'Don't Cha'.

Scherzinger picked up the lead role, with Catterall supporting her as she gave the unique lyrics a rendition live on air for the listening audience, with the clip catching the attention of Red Devils supporters online around the world.

The original song, sung by Scherzinger and her fellow Pussycat Dolls, was released in 2005 and featured Busta Rhymes. It flew to the top of the UK chart and ended 2005 as the 5th most purchased song.

Whilst this adapted version is unlikely to take the charts by storm, it is receiving its fair share of online coverage.
