"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Paula Abdul has just finalized her deal with Simon Cowell and his new monster machine, “X-Factor“. Paula will be joining Simon, Antonio “L.A.” Reid, and Cheryl Cole as judges.
Cheryl flew into Los Angeles yesterday, and the entire judge panel is set to hit downtown Los Angeles today, for auditions for the show.
Will you be there?
So I’m sure everybody saw the performance of NKOTBSB on DWTS. And while everybody seemed to get lost in the hypnosis of the OIJPOAIDJFKLJA style letters and acronyms, somebody in PR should’ve realized what they were really saying here.
I understand NKOTB ends in B, and BSB starts with B, so you would think it’s the logical place to link the two names (or acronyms of names) together to form your super group. But what you’re really saying is:
NEW KIDS ON THE BACKSTREET BOYS
Umm… Okay, yeah you should’ve thought that one through gentlemen. This gives a whole new meaning to the term “Boy Band”.
And maybe that ‘s what they always meant by “Backstreet“…

The deal is pretty much complete, and it looks like Simon Cowell is going to be bringing a few old friends on board to join the judge panel of the American version of X-Factor. American Idol pal Paula Abdul, and British X-Factor judge Cheryl Cole, also from British girl group “Girls Aloud”
The two hotties will be joining Simon and Antonio “L.A.” Reid as the 4 judge to complete the American X-Factor judge panel.
With this confirmation, it looks like Simon’s got himself a perfect plan. He has told people that L.A. Reid was his No. 1 choice for a judge on X-Factor. But reuniting Paula is a great move considering her abrupt departure from American Idol, which many speculated was due to financial negotiations over her contract. In addition, Cheryl was apparently broken-hearted when Simon had claimed he only wanted Americans to be the judge on X-Factor.
Maybe Simon was just keeping his own X-Factor up his sleeve in Cheryl Cole. And being that Simon has such an overbearing personality as a judge, the 3 of them look like they may have a pretty balanced panel.
Are you excited for the show to begin? Auditions across America have already begun
