'The X Factor' Cast Covers The Hollywood Reporter

X Factor stars Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, L.A. Reid, and Steve Jones cover the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s what the stars had to share:

Simon, on what he’s looking for: “Buzz. In England, you genuinely get the feeling the whole country is talking about the show. I hope for that.”

Simon, on saying he’d hire ousted judge Cheryl Cole again: “[I]n a heartbeat – you’re not drowning puppies here. You’re offering someone who’s got millions of dollars more money and more work. And if people think that’s cruel, then they can do that to me on a daily basis. I’ll take it twice a day.”

L.A., on Randy Jackson comparisons: “Yeah, I had those conversations where I’m the black guy with the bald head. I’ve heard all those comments: ‘If they’re gonna use Randy, why didn’t they just get Randy?’ “That’s just how people think, but who cares? I love Randy. He’s been doing this successfully for 11 years. Comparing me to him is certainly not an insult.”

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.”
