Will she or won't she?

I've been saying from the start that I'd absolutely love if Paula Abdul was asked to be a judge on Simon Cowell's X Factor. We still don't have word on who the judges will be and Paula Abdul is playing dumb about the whole issue. So, will she judge or won't she?

The fact that Simon Cowell has been so quiet about who will be sitting at the judges' table with him on the American version of X Factor makes me think there's some serious negotiation going on.

When Paula Abdul appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno the other night, Jay brought up Simon and the rumors that the two of them would be working together again. Jay asked, "Is this the first you've heard of it?" To which Paula Abdul answered, "Yeah... He always talks to me about, 'We will work together somehow, some way.'"

So, what do you think? I wouldn't be so suspicious except Paula claims this is the first she's heard of the rumors she and Simon would be working together again. Impossible! There's no way she didn't hear the rumors.



Plus, Simon Cowell was a little elusive about Paula Abdul earlier this week. He told reporters, "I'm a massive fan of Paula's. When you work with somebody as long as I did with Paula ... we were friends 80% of the time and interestingly, we've been in contact. I'm not going to say on this call who we are going to confirm or not confirm, but we're talking to a number of people."

Of course, Simon could be simply trying to keep us all on our toes and interested to hear who the judges will be. Who do you want to see on the X Factor? I'm crossing my fingers for Paula Abdul!
