It's a done deal! We've got a show people! Rejoice!
A few moments ago, FOX made the offical announcement that Paula Abdul will join Cheryl Cole, Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Simon Cowell as a judge on the U.S. edition of The X Factor!
And do you know who is the most thrilled about this? US!
Do you know who is almost just as thrilled? SIMON! In the official press release, Simon raved:
“This show would never have been the same without Paula and I can’t believe I am saying this - I have missed her a lot, and I am thrilled she’s on the show."
Absolutely! 100% agreed! The chemistry you guys have is going to make it! This is beyond inspired!
As for Paula, well, she's is "beyond words" and is ready to be back where she belongs at Simon's side, inspiring a new generation of talent just like her! She explained:
"I am excited beyond words to be a part of The X Factor. I couldn't be happier to bring my love for cultivating talent and performance to such a wildly anticipated show. I'm looking forward to being back with the FOX/FremantleMedia family and know that it will be an extraordinary journey — we're going to have a blast. I'm also delighted and grateful to be sitting next to Simon again…but you might want to check back with me in a week or two!"
HA! She's still got it! Yes! Yes! Yes!
The gangs all set now! Let the magic begin!
Good luck to this team of super music masters and their new adventure and all of the artists who will be brave enough to audition! We can't wait to see what you are made of!!!
