We've missed Simon and Paula so much!
The American Idol power couple, record-label exec L.A. Reid, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole, arrived to tape the first round of auditions for the new US version of X Factor, in LA.
Reports claim Cowell told audience members to be "as badly behaved as you want," though producers started backtracking after the crowd got a bit too wild. Producers asked them not to boo, lest the show appear too negative.
But what's a reality show without a little drama?
Will you tune in to X-Factor this fall?
