Paula Abdul: 'X Factor' Could Lead to Greatness

Paula Abdul is ready to rock as she graces the cover of Emmy magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 49-year-old entertainer had to share:

On joining The X Factor: “This show is kind of a [combination] of all the different careers I’ve had. And I love nurturing raw, untapped talent – having a front-row seat to something at its humble beginnings that could lead to greatness.”

On not having regrets about leaving American Idol: “I felt like my time on the show ran its course. I was very grateful for the good times, and I was a good student through the tough times. But I felt like the dynamics of the show changed when they brought Kara in.”

On remembering Michael Jackson: “I miss Michael so much. I still can’t believe he’s gone, and I still find myself speaking of him as if he’s alive.”
