LOS ANGELES -- Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul are back together again.

Fox announced Sunday that the two former "American Idol" judges have reunited to assess singing talent on Cowell's new television show "The X Factor."

The competition debuts this fall. Abdul will be joining her longtime sparring partner Cowell, as well as Cheryl Cole and Antonio "L.A." Reid.

The Associated Press reported Saturday that Abdul would be part of the panel, which is taping its first judging session Sunday in Los Angeles.

The 48-year-old Abdul reigned on "Idol" as the nice if sometimes dizzy-seeming judge who often clashed colorfully with Cowell in his role as resident bullyboy. She left "Idol" in 2009, after eight seasons.
