Abdul Says She and Cowell Getting Along on ‘X Factor’

Posted by at 8:58 am on May 27, 2011

Paula Abdul said Friday her reunion with Simon Cowell on his new talent show is going great, for now.

“We’re still in the honeymoon phase, which will probably only last another minute,” the 48-year-old Abdul told reporters in Singapore. “Simon and I ended up having a wonderful, exquisite, challenging and frightening relationship.”

The two famously bickering former “American Idol” judges will be joining forces again to assess would-be singing stars on Fox’s “The X Factor,” which taped its first judging session earlier this month and will debut this fall in the U.S.

Abdul is looking to bounce back from “Live to Dance,” a talent competition series she starred that premiered on CBS in January and was a ratings disappointment.

The tension and teasing between Cowell and Abdul helped make “Idol” one of the most popular television shows. She left the show in 2009 over a contract dispute after eight seasons.
