Has Paula Signed On For X Factor America???

| Filed under: TV NewsPaula AbdulAmerican IdolSimon Cowell


Sorry, Ryan and Randy!

There have been loud whisperings that Paula has signed a $4.5 million contract to appear on the the US version of Simon Cowell's X Factor!!!!

Cowell, who announced his departure from American Idol after the upcoming season's close to start production on The X Factor America, allegedly flew Abdrool out to the UK to meet the X Factor production team!

“Simon flew Paula to London and wined and dined her relentlessly over the course of several days, even introducing her to everyone who works on X Factor," a source claimed.

"But what really clinched the deal was Simon’s pledge that she wouldn’t have to deal with all the nonsense and infighting that she hated on Idol."

Will 2011 mark the return of Simon and Paula?????

    X-Factor is the best show in the UK. It will do well in the usa… idol is so out dated!!!!

  2. 2

    Why doesn't Fox just pick up X-Factor instead of AI? It worked in Britain, why not in America?

  3. 3

    Whatever! theres no American Idol without the original judges !!!!!

  4. 4

    I hope that is true……..the best part of Idol will be missing without Paula

    I give American Idol 2 more seasons, one without Paula, and one without Simon, especially with the failure of winner, Chris Allen's album. If another winner fails to even achieve a gold album what would be the point?
    Does Fox already own the X Factor? If not it would probably really help NBC.

  6. 6

    I think the X Factor will become the new idol once Simon AND Paula are on board

  7. 7

    well if cheryl accepts aswell paula will be the "other girl" on the panel.

  8. 8

    i say just cancel the show

  9. 9

    Miss so much! I don't know how you're still doing it. Try and T me this week, ok?

  10. 10

    duh this has been in the works all along..paula has been working with Simone for months, big suprise..they are very dear friends.. the only real friend she had on the panel.. lets guess why? the whole thing is going quite nicely for simone, as always he is always thinking the future..great guy to work for and very loyal..your blog is getting very slow with news..

  11. 11

    Nooooo! We finally got rid of the space cadet!

  12. 12

    Yay! I'd love to see them back together again!

  13. 13

    the axf is gonna be huge ! simon and paula r gonna be part of it !

  14. 14

    idol is boring without paula and if simon leaves idol is gonna end !

  15. 15

    the AXF is gonna be the best show !

  16. 16

    idol sucks !!!!!! kara sucks!

  17. 17

    I've had enough idol already..over w/it

  18. 18

    Thank God - how could America survive without Paula Abdul starring on a wack-ass talent show?

    Kathy Griffin and Chelsea Handler are probably very happy for obvious reasons; more material. Seriously why would they want her drunk ass on the show, she probably wouldn't even know where she is half of the time - just like American Idol.

  20. 20

    I just can't wait for that to happen..I just love Paula Abdul…..when x-factor comes on …America Idol will be a thing from the past….


  21. 21

    idol is going down !

  22. 22

    now idol is a stupid joke!

    I hope Cheryl Cole is on the American X Factor. Maybe then her as well as Girls Aloud will get better recognition in North America. I stopped watching American Idol after the 3rd season, but I'd watch X Factor to see Cheryl on my TV screen.

  25. 25

    I will DEFINITLEY watch if Paula is back, I love her and Simon, but it should be them and 2 new judges, I don't want it to be like washed up Idol.

  26. 26

    I think these two are so cute together. Too bad they probably won't hook up IRL.

  27. 27

    And the winner is…

  28. 28

    As much as I love American Idol, The X Facor is much better!

  29. 29

    The way Simon put Paula down every chance he got, especially during the last season of Idol where he bordered on personal attacks, I really thought he was the one who convinced producers not to sweeten a new deal for Paula, so that she'd leave on her own. Surprising that Simon is team Paula. I guess his nastiness to her was part of Simon's idea of good television viewing. It WAS still the highest rated show last season…

  30. 30

    this officially marks the end of american idol, may it rest in peace!

  31. 31

    Re: O-wunmi – AMEN !

  32. 32

  35. 35

    Yeah ! AI can keep Ellen & that other chick ! Bring on X-Factor !

  36. 36

    Anyone with a brain saw this coming. All part of the plan.

  37. 37

    If that's true is gonna be a hit!!! A powerful couple!!! AMERICAN IDOL SUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKSSSSSSS!!!!!

    Simon is a smart man and he knows chemistry is important. Him and Paula have incredible chemistry…and he know's it. 2011 will be the last year for Idol and X-factor will be the new "reality show champ".

  39. 39

    I love Paula, it's great she has another gig $$$$.

  40. 40


  41. 41

    If he hired this whackjob for another job she doesn't deserve that I can say without a doubt I won't watch it. She was awful on AI and made each season unbearable as it went on. Her drama with Simon was immature and unnecessary. I am finally looking forward to a new season of AI. Damn Simon…..give us a break from this crackhead please!

    Re: ap076 – Come on Ap! It's KRIS Allen as you should well know since you spout so many statistics! Lol…gotta get you when I can! ;)

  43. 43

    Re: talldude – Do you realize when you add an "e" to the end of Simon's name you are changing it from the mail version to the female version? Just wondering….Simon is no "e".

  44. 44

    Re: danalovespaula – hahahahaha….all your adulation goes out the window for the crackhead when you can't spell her name right! So fitting for you to idolize her.. lol!

    Re: MyOpinionOnly – Uhm, no it doesn't. Just MyOpinionOnly, but it just means danalovespaula couldn't spell her name.
    Dana still loves Paula, imho.

  46. 46

    That would be so awesome!! I bet Seacrest is shitting his pants right now!!

  47. 47

    cheryl cole should be on it too

  48. 48

    ,i think the X factor will be the new AI since paula and randy will be there.theres no American Idol without the original judges !!!!!

    Re: MyOpinionOnly – I am a statistics whore. Toche.

  50. 50

    Wow! X Factor US! It's gonna be awesome. Hope he doesn't bring convicted racist Cheryl Cole over as a judge. Still can't get over fact she battered Sophie Amogbokpa whilst calling her a black bitch!!! What a racist piece of gobshite she is.
