Speaking to Digital Spy along with her acts Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur, the ex-Pussycat Doll said she has fallen in love with the UK so much that she is "thinking about moving here".
Asked whether she feels UK fans have warmed to her after her shaky X Factor debut, Scherzinger replied: "Oh my gosh, I'm flippin' in love with them now.
"When I say this right now I mean it from my heart, because I've put a lot of thought into... what has been the biggest difference from my experience last year [on The X Factor USA], and it's very simple - they've simply allowed me to by myself here.
"Not only did they do that, they brought out the best in me, the British public, or at least the crazy or the Schermazing in me. And I have to thank them for that, because it wouldn't have been a great year [for me] if they didn't embrace my weird idiosyncrasies and my weird sense of humour."
Scherzinger also cleared up reports that she may not return for next year's X Factor, explaining: "When I say I wanna go out on a high I just wanted to make sure I go out on a high this year. As far as next year goes, I haven't even been asked back yet."
On performing with her acts in this weekend's X Factor final, Scherzinger said she "specifically... didn't want to do one of [her] own songs", despite Arthur being keen.
"I do a cover of 'Don't Hold Your Breath' and I wanted to do 'Don't Cha'," he said. "I just wanted her to sing 'Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me' to me'."
Scherzinger added: "But then he makes my version look bad because his is so brilliant."
The X Factor final airs tomorrow (December 8) at 8pm on ITV1.
