Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul Promote 'X Factor'

Todd Williamson/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul were together again on Friday, promoting their upcoming singing competition show, "The X Factor," to journalists at the Television Critics Association tour in Beverly Hills.

Abdul says Simon has changed a little since she last did a show with him.

"He's turned into a pussycat," she said.

Cowell told journalists he is ready to beat "American Idol."

"You don't enter something for the silver medal," he said. "You know, you do it because you want to be number one, and for the next few months we're going to throw everything at this to try and make it the best show on TV."
