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.
