Two members of the original "American Idol" team are together again -- this time for another reality competition, "The X Factor."
Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul showed up for the first round of auditions at the Galen Center in L.A. last night, posing together and even kissing for the cameras. Paula even had a Marilyn Monroe moment going in -- with her dress catching in the wind.
We'll see how long the love lasts between Simon and Paula though, as the two were known for their panel bickering in the past. Abdul even alluded to their sometimes contentious relationship on her Twitter after filming, tweeting "Simon & I got over the honeymoon period very quickly! Back to our good old relationship! :)"
She also talked about fellow judge Cheryl Cole, saying "Lots of you ask "What's it like to work w/ #CherylCole? can you understand her accent?" She's a delight, lovely & sweet. what accent? :)"
Also spotted going into the auditions was L.A. Reid, the fourth judge on the panel.
