At long last, we get a sneak peek at Simon Cowell's highly-anticipated new show, The X Factor -- and Cheryl Cole is completely cut out of it.
The promo premiered tonight on Fox during the MLB All-Star game, and it looks like there's some major talent about to make it big. Judges Antonio "L.A." Reid and Nicole Scherzinger, Cole's replacement, also show us their stuff in the ad.
X Factor judge Paula Abdul said of shooting the commercial with Cowell: â€œSimon says that I inspired him for the whole idea. I donâ€™t know what that means. I donâ€™t know if it is a compliment or an insult. Itâ€™s probably an insult, but it was funny. We were laughing very hard.â€
