by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 13th 2011 3:00AM
'The X Factor' judges, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'In the past two weeks, Simon Cowell has gone from three to one act on 'The X Factor.' In both instances, it came down to the women on the panel to decide. The first week, they eliminated Drew. This week, Nicole Scherzinger threw it to the public vote and Rachel Crow was out.

"Do you guys feel like you ganged up on Simon's contestants specifically because you wanted to win this competition?" Jimmy Kimmel asked the other three judges on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). All of them, of course, vehemently denied it.

Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul Reflect on Astro's 'X Factor' Temper Tantrum (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 18th 2011 4:30PM
When Astro and Stacy Francis landed in the bottom two of Thursday night's 'The X-Factor,' they were expected to sing for survival in a final showdown. But Astro came out he said he didn't think he needed to perform, which had Simon Cowell visibly upset.

After the show,'Good Day LA''s (weekdays 9amPT on Fox) Terri Seymour asked Simon what was going on between him and Astro's mentor, L.A. Reid during the break. "He said to me that he's not going to sing. I said, "Well, he's got to,'" Cowell reported. Terri then asked Paula if she was shocked by Astro's attitude, and she put the incident into perspective, saying, "We have to remember that he is a boy still and I mean, he's a genius at what he does, but you saw the boy in him when a tear rolled down his cheek."

'The X Factor' Recap: The Judges Choose The Top 12 (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 26th 2011 3:00AM
X FactorThere were some controversial choices made during the judges' houses round of 'The X Factor,' but our mentors had the chance to right many wrongs with this week's live elimination show, as each category had to narrow their finalists down to three in order to proceed to America's vote next week.

Up until tonight, the groups seemed like the weakest category by a mile, but smart song choices and confident choreography helped Paula up the ante and raise her category to the standard of the soloists -- though I doubt even the smooth moves of the Stereo Hogzz can compete with the likes of Drew, Josh or Stacy.

Join us after the jump to find out who made it into the top 12 to compete for your votes next week.

'The X Factor' Judges Fight Over Contestant Tiah Tolliver

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 29th 2011 6:15AM
'The X Factor'As his fellow Brits would say, it was "handbags" time on 'The X Factor' last night as Simon Cowell lost his temper with his fellow judges.

Teenage singer Tiah Tolliver split the judging panel straight down the middle, with Cowell -- "I'm saying 'yes' a hundred percent" -- and L.A. Reid voting to put her through to the next round, and the female judges voting to send her home.

When Nicole Scherzinger said "I'll have to pass," the crowd started booing, and an irritated Cowell exclaimed "Oh, for god's sake!"

Paula Abdul's decision to say no was greeted with Cowell hurling a piece of paper to the floor and turning away in disgust.

Paula Abdul Reflects on 'The X Factor' Flasher (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 22nd 2011 6:15PM
Many Americans were undoubtedly horrified by the male flasher on 'The X Factor' premiere, but judge Paula Abdul was actually made physically ill by the spectacle. With her stomach settled, she went on 'Good Day New York' (Weekdays, 9amET on Fox) to reflect on the harrowing experience.

Apparently the guy wasn't totally nude, but still, there were bits and pieces flying everywhere. "He had some very loose things that were flailing all over the place," Paula said. "People were leaving the building."

Paula didn't know why the man wasn't arrested for indecent exposure. We're not sure why he wasn't pulled off the stage sooner. Then again, if he was, what would we be talking about today?

Simon Cowell Compares Paula Abdul to a Lost Dog in the Pound (VIDEO)

Simon Cowell, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'With Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul reunited on 'The X Factor' this fall, it must have been time to dust off the old rumors connecting the pair romantically, because that's exactly what Jay Leno did on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Cowell answered as he did the last time this came up, reiterating that the pair only kissed that one time for a silly video shoot during one of the early seasons of 'American Idol.' He did, however, make sure to mention that she wanted to do multiple retakes.

He is constantly giving her grief, after all. Cowell then went on to compare Abdul to a family's lost dog in the pound, equating the dog's excitement at seeing its family again to how Abdul reacted upon seeing him for this new venture. It's as if they never left our television screens.

by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 13th 2011 10:20AM
It's hard to forget all the drama that's surrounded 'The X Factor' for the past ... many months. Now, the time is finally (almost) here to see what all the hype is about -- 'X Factor' hits the air in September.

However, you don't have to wait that long to see Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and L.A. Reid in action -- just watch the video below.

X Factor Judges

The first half is effectively a car commercial. You know it's a dream because Simon isn't wearing a trademark deep v-neck T-shirt. The real juicy bits happen just a little after a minute and half when 'X Factor' host Steve Jones says, "This is 'The X Factor!'" There's bright costumes, terrible singers, good voices, Simon and Paula canoodling, Paula throwing her Pepsi and L.A. Reid saying he wants to slit his wrists. Plus, Nicole Scherzinger steps on Paula's toes and gets teary while calling a contestant an inspiration.

Watch it after the jump.

Adam Lambert Should Replace Simon Cowell on 'American Idol'

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 18th 2010 2:04PM
adam_lambert_fox_american_idolThis hasn't been a particularly exciting season of 'American Idol.' The addition of Ellen DeGeneres has rated a 'B-minus' at best, and that's if you're grading on a curve. The contestants have failed to create the buzz we've heard in previous seasons.

The absence of Paula Abdul as a judge has given rise to rumors that she's going to be asked back next season to bring back the 'train wreck' factor. And then there's the reality that Simon Cowell has been punching the clock, sort of sleepwalking through the competition which will be his last go round with 'Idol.'

What Should Paula Do Next?

by Scott Harris, posted Mar 27th 2010 12:00PM
Ever since Paula Abdul left 'American Idol' last year over a contract dispute, fans around the world have been abuzz, wondering just what the iconic pop star would do next.

And there have been no shortage of answers, as Abdul has been connected to everything from 'Ugly Betty' to 'Dancing With the Stars' to 'Star Search' in a non-stop rumor mill that has seen her attached to one project or another on just about every major network.

Now word has come that she may be working with choreographer Kenny Ortega to develop a show about enormous flash mobs that create population-sized dance routines in public places around the world. That "too crazy even for Paula" idea somehow seems fitting for a star already mulling over her own daytime talk show along with a reunion with former 'American Idol' foil Simon Cowell on his upcoming series 'X-Factor.'

paula_abdul_cleavage_hairHmm ... this is an interesting development. For weeks, it seemed that Simon Cowell was all set to snag his old 'American Idol' foil, Paula Abdul, for 'The X Factor.' That's the new talent competition show Simon is launching on Fox in 2011. Reportedly, Simon wanted Paula as an 'X Factor' judge.

Simon now has competition for Paula. ABC has offered Paula Abdul a spot on 'Star Search.' According to the Hollywood Reporter, following another report in Entertainment Weekly, the latest incarnation of 'Star Search' will be a singing competition and Paula could be a host and a judge. That's twice as much as she did on 'American Idol.'

More importantly, it's on ABC.
