Nicole Scherzinger on Adele's surgery

Nicole Scherzinger has said she believes Adele will overcome throat problems that have forced her to cancel all of her remaining live dates in 2011.

The '21' singer is set to undergo throat surgery to correct the problem, which has blighted her career in recent months.

Speaking to Heart's Showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes, Nicole said she felt for Adele – but backed her to make a strong comeback.

"My heart goes out to her, I'll keep her in my prayers," she said.

"But she is a solider and an empowering woman, so I know that she's going to get some rest and come back even stronger and even better. She'll have a million more tours to come."

Nicole is currently promoting her new single 'Try With Me' from the album 'Killer Love', which is set to be re-released.
