Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell back together?  Yep!  Abdul has reportedly signed on as the fourth judge on Simon’s Cowell’s "X Factor".   And as crazy as this is going to sound, I'm glad!  Yes I am.  I used to think the two of them on American Idol acted a bit too hokey at times, but you know what, I miss it.

"X Factor" is based on Cowell's hit British show, and will debut this fall on Fox. It is open to solo singers and vocal groups age 12 and up. The winner will get a $5 million record contract.
