Ne-Yo sat side by side with Nicole Scherzinger as a special guest judge on "X Factor UK" Saturday.
Helping Scherzinger weed through her final picks during the judges house portion of the show, Ne-Yo was honest as can be with contestant Jahmene Douglas.
"Your nervous energy is going to make you or break you, don’t let it break you," said Ne-Yo. "You’re here because you’re talented, believe that when you sing."
As previously reported, Scherzinger has been judging this season after parting ways with the X Factor USA team.
