It’s finally set it stone! The contracts have been signed and the auditions have begun. Paula Abdul will join Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Cheryl Cole on the judge’s panel for the US version of Cowell’s ‘X-Factor’. I know what you’re thinking. Really? Another reality singing competition. We have ‘American Idol’. We have ‘The Voice’. We have (or maybe had, I’m not sure) ‘Nashville Star’. Do we really need another one? Probably not, but we have one and I’ll be watching. I love Simon and I love Paula. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are doing a great job on Idol, but Simon and Paula have such great chemistry. Here at the ‘X-Factor’ auditions, Paula looks lovely. I’ve always been a big fan and I’m excited to see her on television again.
