Live To Dance is wrapping up its season this week and the rumor mill is buzzing about what Paula Abdul’s next move might be. Simon Cowell recently confirmed he will be a judge on the reality show X-Factor. Now both Simon and Paula are dropping hints that she also might be a judge on the show.
The Associated Press reports that during a teleconference this week, Simon had lovely things to say when asked about Paula and said he is a massive fan of hers. However, he remained tight-lipped about who will join him as a judge on the show. The remaining panel will be announced in a few weeks.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show, Paula dropped a hint that perhaps Simon is courting her to join him on his show. When Jay Leno asked her about Simon’s comment, she replied, “I think you need to take ‘mass’ off and put ‘obsessive.’ He’s obsessed with me.”
While it has been wonderful to see Paula back on reality television on Paula Abdul, her sunny optimism hasn’t been quite the same without Simon’s snarky barbs to balance her out. Hopefully, an announcement confirming their reunion will be made soon!
The X Factor is set to debut in the fall on Fox. The US launch follows several successful seasons in Britain. The winner of the X Factor will get a $5 million record deal. Simon believes he can recreate the success that he had on American Idol and said, “I believe I can find a star.” Perhaps if Paula joins forces with him, they will.
