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.

    Cheryl is vile.
    A crap judge, Dannii is the best judge on UK X Factor but shes not sleeping with Simon Cowell so she didn’t get the job.

    Big mistake Simon! At least we get rid of her in the UK!!!!

    I have no idea who Cheryl is besides being on all the Maxim hot lists, lol but she is a beauty! I hope she will become very famous in the US now because right now she is not even known here (off the internet that is)

    so I look forward to seeing her as a judge! Better to look at than that ugly tranny, leather face Marisa Miller. ugh. glad that was just a rumor.

    So glad Joe Simpson won’t be able to float his fat stupid cow daughter’s name as a possible judge anymore. I wonder if she thought she really had a chance.

    come on now simon. surely there had to be someone else to add to the panel besides freakin’ PAULA!!! We’ve had enough of her already!

    I love Cheryl though so I guess i’ll just have to fast forward through paula’s parts — just like i did on Idol lol.
