Record executive Antonio "L.A." Reid will sit at the judges table on Simon Cowell's new talent show, "The X Factor."

 But there are other judges still to be named. Paula Abdul has been in the running. Cowell says he loves Paula but he isn't necessarily fighting for her over anyone else. He says "she's in there with the sharks."

 He says there are "a lot of people who want the same job. That's the problem." Auditions for the American version of "The X Factor" start Sunday in Los Angeles and then move to five more cities.
