Black Eyed Peas leader WILL.I.AM offered both Fergie and Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger a place in his band on the same night. Scherzinger was under contract with girl group Eden's Crush at the time and had to turn down the hip-hop star's offer - but she insists she could have been Fergie. She says, "We had some radio shows together and he ( actually met me and Fergie on the same night and he asked me to join the Black Eyed Peas... I wasn't able to."
