Simon Phillip Cowell is the annoying judge on American Idol that likes to make negative comments about contestants. Simon Cowell was dumped by his long term girlfriend Terri Seymour and recently announced his engagement to Mezhgan Hussainy.
Following its final judging panel selection, FOX has finally announced the debut date for Simon Cowell's "X Factor"!
Simon, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger will all be on-hand to kickoff the Stateside version of the popular show, which is set to hit FOX's airwaves with a two-day, two-hour season premiere September 21 and 22.
Now that "X-Factor" has officially made it's way to the U.S., Simon Cowell has opened up to address any leftover rumors surrounding the show.
The former "American Idol" judge's friend, Ryan Seacrest, took to his radio show to reveal the last-minute changes to the judges panel, telling "Paula [Abdul] signed on in the last hour. The deal was done just moments before they started the auditions with Paula."
Attempting to clear the air about some recent rumors, Simon Cowell opened up about meeting with Cee Lo Green and not offering him the judge position on “The X Factor.”
The former “American Idol” judge, who attended first round auditions of the show with Paula Abdul on Sunday (May 8), told, "I had a meeting with him [Cee Lo]. I just said hello. I didn't offer him the job. The next thing I'm reading that he turned me down. We saw tons of people; nobody turned us down."
Getting the popular UK show's Stateside version underway, Cheryl Cole attended the first round auditions taping of "The X-Factor" in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon (May 8).
Glamming up the Galen center venue, the former Girls Aloud singer looked colorful and cute as she worked the arrivals area alongside Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul at the show kickoff held on the Mother's Day holiday.
There has been plenty of buzz about Cheryl Cole's involvement with the US version of “The X Factor” and today it was confirmed- she’ll be one of the show’s judges.
According to creator Simon Cowell, “I’m thrilled for Cheryl. She is massively excited about this show, and she has been fantastic to work with. She’s also a complete brat! Most importantly, this girl can spot talent.”
They’ve both been the objects of rumors regarding the new American version of “The X Factor” and now Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole have been confirmed for the gig.
According to a new interview with Deadline, “X Factor” honcho Simon Cowell has made it official that he desires both ladies will be judges when the show hits airwaves this fall, though no contracts have been signed yet.
