Simon Cowell is hoping to have a mini reunion with Paula Abdul as he continues his quest in search for the right judges on X Factor. Earlier reports indicated the former American Idol judge Paula Abdul was a sure in for The X Factor, however updated reports are stating that’s not the case.
Deadline reported earlier in an interview with Simon Cowell,
“I’ve always wanted Paula,” Cowell told Deadline. “Always been very vocal about that. I missed her the second she left the show [“American Idol”]. Always loved working with her even though she can be a pain. And I’ve been consistent about this. I don’t know what it is about her, but I’ve always clicked with her. You just have to get that chemistry, and she’s right….. I think she’s got a really good shot.”
The Hollywood Reporter on the other hand states,
“It’s still playing out,” the rep said. “Nothing is set, and Paula is one of many people Simon is talking to. He’s said the same thing many times, including on the radio last week. There’s nothing new.”
Simon Cowell certainly knows how to build up the suspense to his show and of course we will be watching!
