US Weekly is officially reporting Paula Abdul as the fourth and final judge to join Simon Cowell, Antonio “L.A” Reid, and Cheryl Cole on the X Factor. Today, all four judges showed up on the Red Carpet to celebrate the US X Factor’s first taping. Simon and Paula are beyond excited on their reunion. Read more in a take below and at the link. Picture above from the official X Factor Facebook page.

“This show would never have been the same without Paula and I can’t believe I am saying this, [but] I have missed her a lot, and I am thrilled she’s on the show,” Cowell, 51, told Us Weekly in a statement Sunday afternoon, hours after his new series began its first official day of production in Los Angeles.

Abdul — who exited Idol in 2009 after eight seasons — tells Us she can’t wait to start critiquing wannabe singers again.

“I am excited beyond words to be a part of The X Factor,” the 48-year-old Abdul said in a statement. “I couldn’t be happier to bring my love for cultivating talent and performance to such a wildly anticipated show.

“I’m looking forward to being back with the FOX/FremantleMedia family and know that it will be an extraordinary journey — we’re going to have a blast. I’m also delighted and grateful to be sitting next to Simon again…but you might want to check back with me in a week or two!”

And here is a tweet from Paula herself;

I wanted so much to give you a confirmation sooner… Well here it is right now! :)) xoxoP
