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!!!

  1. 1

    Great decisions. Paula is nuts and will make great TV.



  2. 2

    What an effing joke.



  3. 3

    I love paula but this is a BAD idea. This show is just recycling former shows into one. Paula from idol. Cheryl from xfactor uk. Simon from idol and xfactor uk. This is a BAD idea.



  4. 4

    Good to see Paula back! She's a self medicated drinker and I like a hot mess on television. Keeps me entertained!



  5. 5

    I am so fricken excited!



  6. 6

    Glad she's back on her feet.



  7. 7

    So this show has two ex American Idol judges that everyone knows and one irrelevant non talented singer? Clearly trying to get Shityl Cole some publicity in America. Won't be tuning in even thought I like Paula.



  8. 8

    Well Simon makes up for Cheryl and Reid makes up for Paula so i guess the scale is balanced.



  9. 9

    This show will suck so much. I can't even.



  10. 10

    Ewwwwwwwwww, not watching. I like Simon and Reid was a good choice, and I can even handle talentless Cheryl cause she's cute, but this?? No.

    BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY-Carson Daly called Perez/Mario out on his RADIO SHOW last week for posting IN TOUCH'S STORY ABOUT Christina being a DIVA. Daly said she is not, never was A DIVA. Daly is the host of the VOICE. He cut Mario SHORT ON HIS 'GOSSIP REPORT' and told him he should stop this crap of pushing this crap along that IS JUST WRONG. Mario hems and haws and says 'well, someone from the show musta started it' DALY SAID 'JUST STOP AND POST A CORRECTION' and again, Mario' well, you are getting press for the VOICE! DALY GETS HIM OFF AGAIN! Unfort. Mario posts correction on THE SAME POST! NO ONE SEES IT. SHAME SHAME. See Gossip Cop! for the radio interview!



  12. 12

    At least Paula will showcase how bad Cheryl is.



  13. 13

    Good luck everyone hope the X Factor does well here in America!



  14. 14

    American Idol, The Voice and X-Factor all in one year…it is a little too much don't you think. This will be the death of these "talent" shows. The only show that shows some hope of surviving is "The Voice" because it is somewhat different. X-Factor is pretty much American Idol with some tweaks.

    Re: justtfax – After I read your post, I went to Gossip Cop, and I listened to the interview. And I must say, although I am not the biggest Perez fan out there, he handled that interview with pure class. He didn't once get a temper, he wasn't overly defensive, and he managed to stay within his normal tone. I was very impressed. But you're right, Perez shouldn't be posting stuff that's not true, but he did manage to handle the on-air confrontation VERY well. The rest of you guys should listen to it for yourself. Whether or not you like Perez, just give the interview an honest judgement. I, for one, think Perez did a good job.



  16. 16

    The only reason Cheryl got the job is cause she's been sucking Simon's dick for years.



  17. 17

    Paula is a logical choice. Cheryl got the UK and US gigs on X Factor gig cause she's been sucking Simon's dick for years. whore. I heard she's also been sucking 50 cent with hopes that he'll help catapault her music career in America.



  18. 18

    I like Paula but I will not partake in a British show. The ratings have dropped over there so they bring this here to make a big buck. I just hope that this doesn't do well and they all go back to where they belong.



  19. 19

    I love Paula…she is so genuine, kind, beautiful, and talented!

    Re: PlayingTheAngel – no he didnt he was so scared and didnt have the right answer and carson pretty much told him what a scumbag perez is for supporting a fabricated story.
