MTV has reported that Paula Abdul, former American Idol judge, will reunite with Simon Cowell on "X Factor" as part of the judging panel.

They will be joined along with singer Cheryl Cole and former Island Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid.

Cowell stated,"I've always wanted Paula. Always been very vocal about that," he said. "I missed her the second she left the show. Always loved working with her even though she can be a pain. And I've been consistent about this. I don't know what it is about her, but I've always clicked with her. You just have to get that chemistry, and she's right. I've never found anyone better than her," MTV reported.
