The ongoing saga of the Paula Abdul/Simon Cowell relationship will continue to be played out on TV screens across America. What a relief. Paula Abdul has officially joined the judges panel of Simon Cowell’s X Factor, finishing up and signing her contract at the last minute. It was so last minute that it held up first day filming by a couple of hours in fact.
Paula showed up at filming dressed to the nines and immediately embraced Simon for all the cameras. She will be joining the three other confirmed judges, Simon, Cheryl Cole and L.A. Reid as the search begins to find America’s ‘X Factor’ this Fall, according to Fox.
To make sure everyone knew just how important Paula was to him, Simon even bumped the judges over, including his once favorite judge Cheryl Cole, to have Paula seated next to him on the panel according to sources.
Paula, when asked what she thought of the new gig and judges, claimed she was excited to meet Cheryl, that she has ‘heard such lovely things about her’. Simon, on the other hand, had something else in mind. “You put pretty girls together it’s like three cats in a sack, isn’t it,’ he said. ‘And it needs a bit of a shake.” I guess we will see how this plays out.
Looking over the pictures of these judges arriving, [Click pictures to enlarge] the panel almost looks like this other show I once watched. The judging panel resembled these people a lot. Hmmm… what could it be?
