It looks like Simon Cowell has fulfilled his dream judging panel for The X-Factor.

With producer L.A. Reid already on board, Deadline Hollywood reports that Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole are nearing deals to finalize their roles on the upcoming singing competition.

Both have worked with Cowell in the past; Abdul on American Idol and Cole on the British version of The X-Factor.

“I’ve always wanted Paula," Simon told the publication. "I’ve never found anyone better than her... We’ve agreed that we would meet as many people as possible, and now we’re reaching the deadline we’ve got to make the decision soon. But I think she’s got a really good shot.”

As for Cole? “Shes a great judge. She’s smart... If people take to her like the British public did, I think she’s going to do really well in America. And Fox was desperate to hire her."

Well, yeah. The X-Factor champion will receive $5 million, along with the chance to ogle Cole for numerous weeks on the show.

L.A. Reid was the first judge confirmed for the U.S. version of X Factor this year. Now HE confirms that long-rumored judge Cheryl Cole will be there with him.

The top music producer is also confident that between himself, Cheryl and creator Simon Cowell, the show will do just fine against its reality TV competition.

“We’re gonna compete against American Idol just fine. I’m confident. But along with Simon Cowell and Cheryl, I don’t know who the other judge is,” he said.

Who will fill out the panel with Cheryl and L.A.?

Others rumored to be joining the U.S. version of the show:

Which of those ladies would you like to see as a judge on the show? Or is there another celebrity you think would be a better fit for Simon's project?

    Take the following rumor with a grain of salt the size of Justin Bieber's fan base...

    According to Great Britain's The Sun, Justin Bieber has been approached by producers to guest star on Glee and has actually accepted - under one condition.

    "It must be in the agreement that [Cheryl Cole] gets a part in the show as well," Justin allegedly told the newspaper. "Cheryl and the show make total sense. It's all about people who look good and can sing and dance - that's totally Cheryl."

    Bieber has made no secret that he crushes on Cole, but these quotes still don't sound like him, do they?

    "Glee is a great way to introduce [Cole] to the States," he says. "It would be great if she played a substitute teacher taking a sabbatical from England or something. Can you imagine how hot Cheryl would look dressed as a school teacher?"

    Whether or not Justin is quoted correctly here, we still wanna know: Do you think he should appear on Glee?

    While all the reality show judging controversy over the last few months has been centered around American Idol, let's not forget about the show Simon Cowell left this hit for.

    X Factor will debut on Fox in early 2011 and The New York Post has announced a pair of judges on that the British version of this singing competition: Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole.

    Scherzinger is the former lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls and last season's Dancing with the Stars champion.; while Cole is a beautiful British singer/model. She's also dating Derek Hough.

    Fox is yet to announce a premiere date for X Factor, but it should be interesting to see how it fares compared to Idol. Will you watch both?

    Justin Bieber has moved on from Megan Fox and Kim Kardashian.

    The 16-year old singer, who has expressed fondness for both those older women and even gotten all wet with the latter for a recent Elle photo shoot, has now set his sights on two other sexy celebs. Sort of.

    Speaking to the British version of OK! Weekly, Bieber made his latest famous crushes clear, although also admitted he's probably too young to date them.

    "Cheryl Cole and Katy Perry are two of the hottest girls in the world - and so normal and funny with it. If I was a few years older, they are the kind of girls I'd like to date. I want a younger version of Cheryl and Katy - a mixture of two would be hot."

    You can say that again, Justin!

    • Hot Hot Katy

    Age difference aside, Cole is getting serious with Derek Hough, while Perry is engaged to Russell Brand.

    Therefore, Justin has another idea: "Maybe they could coach me and tell me how to work out which ones are the good ones. That would be pretty awesome."

    Bieber has already shared a few of the traits he looks for in a partner, but said he'd love to ask "[Cole and Perry] out for dinner so they can tell me the best way to win a woman like them."

    Plus, who knows what might happen once drinks start flowing, right? We like the way Justin thinks!

    Cheryl Cole is feeling much better.

    The gorgeous singer, who came down with malaria a few weeks ago, will return to her seat on The X-Factor judging table this week.

    Cheryl Cole and Derek Hough on Stage

    "Cheryl loves the show and is desperate to get back to work," says a friend. "She's under doctors' orders to that it easy. But it's a big step that she's back on board."

    Following a trip to Tanzania with boyfriend Derek Hough last month, Cole spent a week in intensive care due to this disease. But she'll return for the British version of American Idol in time for the elimination stage.

    Said the insider: "She has put all her energy into getting better and it's paid off. Simon has told her he can't wait to have her back."

    Even unparalleled beauty is no match for malaria.

    Soon after a trip to Tanzania last week with boyfriend Derek Hough, Cheryl Cole came down with a case of this dangerous disease. Friends told The Daily Mail that The X Factor judge was rushed to the hospital after a bout of "sweating and shaking" at home.

    Cole will remain in the hospital for a few days and will need many weeks to recover from the ailment. Said a source:

    "Cheryl hadn't been feeling herself for about a week. She was feeling tired and listless... During Sunday afternoon, Cheryl went downhill quickly. She was sweating and shaking and in a bad way."

    Get better soon, Cheryl! Send in your best wishes to this malaria-stricken sex symbol today!

    A spokesman says a mosquito likely bit his client and added: "Following doctors' advice, Cheryl Cole will be canceling all work commitments for the next week."

    In related news, we've never been so jealous of a mosquito in all our lives.

    While the relationship between Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest is receiving most of the gossip world's attention, the former's brother has landed himself a beauty comparable to his sibling.

    Derek is dating British bombshell Cheryl Cole.

    Due to this connection, insiders say those close to Cole are pushing for her to join Dancing with the Stars in the near future. What better way to raise her American profile?

    "Her U.S. team thinks it will be a great move for her and increase her profile stateside," a source told MTV. "Partnering her with Derek would be a masterstroke and they want her to give it serious thought."

    We'd also like to give serious thought... to Cole naked!

    Hough is the reigning Dancing with the Stars champion. He brought the trophy home last season with Nicole Scherzinger.

    ABC has not yet announced a premiere date for the next edition of this competition. Would you wanna see Cole on it?

    • Hey, Cheryl!

    Bieber was also asked about his first kiss and replied:

    "I can't remember her name. It was at a school dance. It was kind of bad because it was my first kiss. I made a bet with my friends - first person to get a kiss gets ten dollars. So I slowed danced with this girl and then just went in.

    "Back then I was just a regular hockey-playing kid, so I was lucky she kissed me back!"

    Now? Let's just say Justin doesn't have to worry about a girl ever kissing him back.
