For months it’s been rumored that Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul would work together on the American premiere of his show X- Factor, but now it’s no longer a rumor. Simon Cowell told Nikki Finke from Deadline Hollywood that Paula has signed on as a judge for Cowell’s new talent show!

No contracts have been officially signed yet, but Simon says “it’s a done deal.” He said casting the judges is like casting a dinner party, you want people on board that you get along with. Sitting at his “dinner table” will now include Paula, the soon to be announced pop star [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Cheryl Cole[/lastfm] and previously confirmed record exec L.A. Reid.

Do you think this cast of judges for X Factor has star power or will it be a snooze-fest?!

    FIona, did you get my YOUTUBE link of Gloria Estefan singing, “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me!” originally sung by Mel Carter in the 60’s? I hope you enjoy it; I think of you when I hear that song! Enjoy! I know you love Estefan! So do I!
