Yesterday marked the first day of X Factor‘s L.A. auditions, and as had been predicted, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Paula Abdul[/lastfm] was right there with her old pal and, mock nemesis, Simon Cowell as a judge. FOX made the official announcement at the L.A. auditions held earlier this week at Galen Center.
Abdul will join previously announced judges Cowell, L.A. Reid, and Cheryl Cole.
Talking to Access Hollywood, Abdul had this to say about becoming an X Factor judge:
[This is] another dream come true, believe it or not. I had the hopes that I was [coming back]. I never assume anything, but this was one wish that came true.
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicole Scherzinger[/lastfm] was also officially announced as a co-host of X Factor on Sunday.
