It's official -- Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul are back together again. 

Fox announced yesterday the two former "American Idol" judges are reuniting on Cowell's new show, "The X Factor."

 The singing competition debuts this fall. Abdul will be joining Cowell, as well as Cheryl Cole and Antonio "L.A." Reid as judges.

In a statement, Abdul says she's "excited beyond words." Cowell says, "I can't believe I am saying this - I have missed her a lot."

 Will it be the same as American Idol?   How long do you think it will be before Paula gets on Simon's nerves?
