Simon Cowell Talks X Factor on The Tonight Show

Simon Cowell played coy with Jay Leno when the Tonight Show host asked him about who would sit on the X Factor judges’ panel.

The ex-Idol judge has been talking with scads of people and can’t make up his mind! He name-checked Paula Abdul as someone he’s still considering. But the recent rumors: Cheryl Cole, Jessica Simpson, Nicole Scherzinger were not mentioned.

Jay dug up some old film of Simon on a British game show. Simon took a big dig at Steven Tyler in a joke that involved Simon’s mum. Despite the fact that nothing new was revealed in this interview, it’s still mildly amusing.
