Simon Cowell says [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Paula Abdul[/lastfm] will be on ‘X Factor’ as a judge along side him and 2 other music industry celebs. Even though he hasn’t officially reached out to Paula and offered an official contract…He seems confident she will be on the show.

My scoop comes from my industry sources on the inside of this story:

SIMON COWELL expects PAULA ABDUL and British singer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]CHERYL COLE [/lastfm]to join him and L.A. REID on the “X Factor” judging panel.

Simon tells that the deals are NOT final yet . . . in fact, he hasn’t started negotiating with Paula . . . but it sounds like it’s all but official. Simon says the official announcement will be made “within less than a week.”

This seems to prove two things: One, Simon apparently did NOT have a desire to bring in a celebrity more famous than himself . . . and Two, that he wanted to do this with people he’s already worked with before.

Of course, Simon and Paula did the first EIGHT seasons of “American Idol” together, along with RANDY JACKSON who’s still on “Idol”. And Cheryl has judged the past three seasons of the British “X Factor” with Simon.

This should be very interesting on how the deal with Pauld should play out with her having no job and huge bills to pay!
