Simon has been very vocal about his desire to have Paula Abdul judge with him on X-Factor. “I’ve always wanted Paula. Always been very vocal about that. I missed her the second she left ['American Idol'],” Cowell, 51, told Deadline. “Always loved working with her even though she can be a pain. … I don’t know what it is about her, but I’ve always clicked with her. You just have to get that chemistry, and she’s right. I’ve never found anyone better than her.”
This announcement is definitely NOT a surprise. Many people across the country will be thrilled to hear that Paula and Simon are coming together again. Fans were SHOCKED when Paula Abdul was fired from American Idol two seasons ago. The following season Simon Cowell quit and ever since then people have been chanting for them to be reunited.
Our guess is that X-Factor is going to be the new HOT reality show this fall, with success like what was seen in the early years of American Idol. Will you be watching?
