Nicole Scherzinger may not be the most liked "X Factor" judge -- but it's safe to say she's the hottest.

The former Pussycat Doll stole attention from reality show heavyweights Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul at a press conference for the show yesterday, thanks to her extremely low-cut dress!

As for the conference itself, Simon revealed the Final 3 will all be performing duets with some superstar musical guests -- but wouldn't say who just yet. It was also announced Melanie Amaro will be closing Wednesday's episode, thanks to her winning a lottery between the other contestants.

In other "X Factor" news, rumors are making the rounds that host Steve Jones will not be asked back for a second season.

A rep for the studly star tells PEOPLE the report is "a fabrication," adding "There have been absolutely no conversations about Steve Jones leaving 'The X Factor.'"
