The X Factor

Photos! Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul’s Weird Relationship

We first met the adorably mismatched pair of Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul during the inaugural season of American Idol ;way back in 2002. Love, hatred, witty banter, pure agitation … It’s difficult to explain their relationship. All we know is that Simon and Paula are back this fall to judge The X Factor, and we can’t wait to see what kooky things they’re going to do next!
