In September, Simon Cowell said Idol is “different” without Paula. He “missed her” and it’s “like comparing a carrot to a banana.” Today reports are that Paula has signed a $4.5 million contract for Simon’s X Factor:
Simon flew Paula to London and wined and dined her relentlessly over
the course of several days, even introducing her to everyone who works
on X Factor.”
“But what really clinched the deal was Simon’s pledge that she
wouldn’t have to deal with all the nonsense and infighting that she
hated on Idol.”
We could therefore be seeing Simon and Paula together again on TV in 2011.
According to the latest on the X Factor, it will be a singing competition with no age limit, so…does America have a Susan Boyle?
