Cheryl Cole: X-Factor Auditions

Cheryl Cole arrives at the Sears Centre on Thursday (May 19) for X-Factor auditions in Chicago, Illinois.

The 27-year-old singer and former American Idol judge Paula Abdul get along quite well together according to Simon Cowell. “They get on great,” he told the Daily Mail. “Cheryl adores Paula. She’s never worked with her before and I’d always spoken about how much fun she was so there’s a bit of a love fest going on at the moment between those two, but that will soon change.”

“The audience seemed to warm to Cheryl,” Simon added. ‘No problems with the understanding, from what we’ve heard.”

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.
