Simon Cowell & Nicole Scherzinger: 'X Factor' Premiere!

Nicole Scherzinger, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid, and Steve Jones arrive at the premiere of The X Factor on Wednesday (September 14) at the ArcLight in Hollywood.

Nicole paired her Randi Rahm dress with Jimmy Choo shoes, a Swarovski bag, a Loree Rodkin ring, and Diamond in the Rough earrings.

A note to future X Factor hopefuls, here are five songs Simon never wants to hear again at an audition: R. Kelly‘s “I Believe I Can Fly,” Etta James‘ “At Last,” The Righteous Brothers‘ “Unchained Melody,” Jason Mraz‘s “I’m Yours,” and John Legend‘s “Ordinary People.”

Simon revealed his list during a recent conference call to promote the FOX competition series, which kicks off next Wednesday (September 21) at 8 p.m.!

FYI: Paula is wearing a Balmain dress with Ruthie Davis heels and a Yves Saint Laurent bag.

The whole love-hate between Simon and Paula gets on my nerves and think both are more in love with themselves and each other than the public is with them.

Not feeling this show at all and won’t be watching. Mean to say but would LOVE if something GIANT-EGO Simon did would tank!!

Who cares about this show. To me it seems to have exact format as American Idol, except not just singing but all talents (and isn’t that the same as America’s Got Talent?). All of these people need it desperately to be a hit, Simon for his ego and to best Amerian Idol, Paula because she’s a loony and nobody else wanted to hire her except Simon, Nicole because she has tried and tried for years to become a solo pop star and it’s not happening. Blah, boring all of them.

I hope they still bring Cheryl Cole in as a guest judge one day as well as Dannii Minogue, Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos from the UK X Factor.

Its annoying the fact that Nicole only worries about being attractive to others. Girl, be yourself and don’t care about what people say!!! Then, you will have your status

I WANT STEVE!!!!!!!!!!!

What a horrible dress for a premiere Nicole!! C’mon – . -

The show is awesome.
