Simon admits Paula's on the short list of judges for X-Factor, but she's not the only one.
"We've taken it down to a smaller group of people and she's in that panel," he tells Access Hollywood. "But, you know, it's more than me who makes the decision."
Idol went downhill after Paula left and was barely resurrected his season thanks to J.Lo and Steven Tyler. But having her and Simon back together on X-Factor will basically be like Idol 2.0.
Jessica Simpson, George Michael, Nicole Scherzinger and Mariah Carey are also being considered. Would you want to see Paula on X-Factor? Or should Simon give someone else a chance?
