Now that Cheryl Cole is out of the picture, Paula Abdul is bonding with new The X-Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger. 

The former Pussycat Doll tweeted out a pic of her and the former American Idol judge with a caption that read: 

"A dream come true! I was & always will be her biggest fan! I can't believe I get 2 work w/ Paula. X Factor day 1!"
Nicole is no stranger to competitive reality shows. The pop star won the coveted mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars a few seasons back. She said of her new gig, via Twitter: 
"After finishing my very 1st day on the new job, every one has been amazing! Thank u NJ for welcoming me. I'm truly grateful & excited to be judging X."
The new judge is replacing Cheryl who came over from the British X-Factor. Executive producer Simon Cowell commented on Cheryl's departure, telling The Associated Press,  “I hate seeing her hurt. She’s one of — I hope — she’s one of my closest friends, and this was a decision we made which we thought would be beneficial to her, funny enough. Not many people will believe that, but that’s the truth."

    Nicole Scherzinger is smart, talented, stylish, beautiful, sexy and down to earth kinda person. She will dazzle you with entertainment but she's not stuck up or up in the air but will be "America's Sweetheart" You will see that she is a workaholic but also fun and she's a people person. I can't wait to watch this show because of her.
