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.

Paula Abdul: GOT TO DANCE Judge on CBS!

Paula Abdul will be a judge on the CBS dance competition series called GOT TO DANCE, which will likely air mid-season.

According to THR, the 47-year-old will serve as the lead judge, executive producer, creative partner, mentor and coach.

The competition series, which is based off of a U.K. reality show, is billed as the first all-ages all-genres dance series “from ballroom to break dance, bhangra to ballet, and tap to tango.”

This past August, Paula announced she was leaving American Idol after eight years.

GOT TO DANCE might compete directly against Idol, the first time that Simon Cowell won’t be judge.
