Simon Cowell Wants Paula, Cheryl
Simon Cowell has revealed that he wants Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole (of Girls Aloud) to join himself and L.A. Reid as judges on the U.S. version of The X Factor. He added, though, that while Cole is in legal talks with his team to do the show, he has yet to approach Abdul with the offer. He did say, though, that he has “always wanted Paula” to be a part of the show.
Cheryl Cole is much more popular in Britain than she is here in the U.S. (see: Russell Brand, too, apparently), but I think she has potential. X Factor is going to be huge, I think, and she’ll get her spot on the A-list in Hollywood soon enough.
Honestly, though, I couldn’t really care less to see who Simon Cowell brings on to join him. I just can’t wait to get him back in the judge’s seat! American Idol is greatly suffering without his presence. For those of you who think I’m just pulling your leg (”Oh I loooove J.Lo and Steven Tyler as judges what are you talking about?!” see: this), just think about it: which of the remaining Idol contestants has real star potential? Haley? Okay. Sure. Jacob? What kind of albums would he sell?
Okay, enough about Idol. Bring back Simon and whoever he wants to bring with him!
