Paula Abdul & Cheryl Cole: 'X Factor' Judges?

Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole will be joining Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid on the judging panel for The X Factor, according to Deadline.

Simon, who worked with Paula on American Idol for eight seasons, said “I’ve always wanted Paula… I missed her the second she left the show… I’ve never found anyone better than her. I think there’s a good chance it will be her. We’ve agreed that we would meet as many people as possible, and now we’re reaching the deadline we’ve got to make the decision soon. But I think she’s got a really good shot.”

Cheryl worked with Simon on the British version of The X Factor.

“Shes a great judge. She’s smart. It’s just a hunch. If people take to her like the British public did, I think she’s going to do really well in America. And Fox was desperate to hire her,” Simon said.

No deals for Paula or Cheryl have yet been finalized.

    Heck yeah!! Finally!! Who’s been judging the Auditions, though?

    Now we just need to know who’ll be the host, and who’ll join Dannii and Louis back in the UK. Katy? Nicole?

    @DahKay: No way, Katy Perry is touring, and she would be a judge on the US X Factor before being a judge of the UK show.

    LOVE Cheryl Cole. If this is true, then I’ll definitely be watching the X factor.
    She did amazing as a judge on the British version (she won 2 out of 3 times). She’s cool, she’s real, she has great chemistry with Simon and she’s not afraid of saying what’s on her mind. Plus, she’s also a singer. She may not have the best voice but she’s not that bad either. She’s great performer and her dance routines are always flawless.

    The X Factor is a joke. Simon Cowell’s label already has dropped 4 UK winners of the X factor. The only people winning is simon and the rest of the judges.

    Pheonix Says:

    Cheryl Cole is a joke as well, just like any other spoiled pop princess ala britney all she does is lip sync, where is the talent in that? if she is a judge in the AMERICAN X factor the show will surely flop. No one in the U.S. cares about this t*w*a*t. So please simon take the american public’s opinion at hand here and have You, la reid, paula and mariah as judges and nicole scherzinger as host . Anything will be better this worthless peice of s*h*i*t!

    how can Cheryl get a work permit with her GBH charge with beating up a old black women, wait till that picture hit the web. i cant wait to see Simon PR team spin this one..
    still a country that cant forgive a drunk black man takin a mic from a white girl, will probably say “it was a long time ago get over it”. Yeah Right

    C.C. Says:

    @amensister: Cheryl was married to a black guy (Ashley Cole – English footballer) for 3 years, she’s not a racist.
