And Perez! C'mon, Cowell! Say, "And Perez!!!!"
Everyone is buzzing about Simon Cowell and the X Factor coming to America so much more now that those ads ran during the Super Bowl. People are pumped for it, but they also want to know who the hell is going to sit at the judges table with Simon come the premiere.
He confessed to sources that there are a lot of names on the table that he "likes", such as Fergie and Usher, and others who have been eliminated all together, like Christina Aguilera (to quote Simon: "Pre Super Bowl, yes; post no.") However, there are three very STRONG contenders for the other two judges seats and they are familiar faces to the franchise. Simon explains that his production team is "talking to" Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole and admits his former American Idol cohort Paula Abdul is "in the mix" with the other hopefuls.
Simon surrounded by three of the most lovely ladies in the biz? How lucky for him AND America! That sounds like a perfect panel to us!
Unless, of course, there is room for one more!
Pleeeeeeeease, Simon! Pick Perez!!!
