Ray Mickshaw/Fox

With the Stateside debut of his British smash The X Factor, Simon Cowell is not only trotting out the tartness, he’s also reuniting with his former Idol tablemate Paula Abdul. On this singing competition that features both solo and group acts and no upper age limit, the judges (Cowell, Abdul, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, and record mogul Antonio ”L.A.” Reid) each serve as mentor to a team of contestants.
