It looks as if Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul can’t get enough of each other. While rumors swirled that Abdul may join the X Factor judging panel it appears as though it really IS happening. Once the U.S. version of The X Factor begins, we will get to see Simon sitting next to Paula again.
Cowell released the following statement, “This show would never have been the same without Paula and I can’t believe I am saying this, [but] I have missed her a lot, and I am thrilled she’s on the show.”
And Abdul is JUST as excited. She told Us Weekly, “I couldn’t be happier to bring my love for cultivating talent and performance to such a wildly anticipated show. I’m looking forward to being back with the FOX/FremantleMedia family and know that it will be an extraordinary journey — we’re going to have a blast. I’m also delighted and grateful to be sitting next to Simon again…but you might want to check back with me in a week or two!”
Move over American Idol, this fierce duo is back and plan to take over the reality television talent competition sector.
Other confirmed judges include LA Reid and UK’s X Factor judge Cheryl Cole.
