Simon Cowell to Team Up With Paula Abdul Again for The X Factor 2010-01-18 12:00:33

Do You Want to See Paula and Simon Together Again?

As you already know by now, Simon Cowell is leaving American Idol after this season and moving on to an American version of his UK hit show, The X Factor. The judges on the series are even more vital than Idol's, as each one also mentors the contestants as they prepare their performances. So who is Cowell eying to complete his panel? Apparently he's in talks with his former co-judge Paula Abdul, along with his UK X Factor costar Cheryl Cole.

The love/hate banter between Abdul and Cowell is what made American Idol such great television in years past, and I was always game to see Abdul do her "you weren't great, but you look so pretty tonight" shtick while Cowell smugly rolled his eyes. Part of me welcomes a reunion. But with them paired up again, is The X Factor going to feel exactly like Idol? And if so, then what becomes of that show? Perhaps both series would be best served if Cowell tried someone totally different this time around.

What's your take?

Simon and Paula is great together.

I think Simon can find someone that can give it back to him as well as Paula did without it having to be her. It would be nice to know what "X FACTOR" is going to be about before I can tell you who would be the great combo with Simon. Also who the other judges are matters too. Nick Cannon would be great if it could be a male. He would be funny, and wouldn't put up with Simon's crap.
