Following two major commercials on Sunday’s Superbowl, Simon Cowell is now revealing more details about the upcoming reality show – The X Factor (the American version).

While the full list of judges has yet to be selected, Simon does confirm he will be a judge on the show. “Once the show goes into production, I become a judge,” Simon told reporters Monday. “Then I have to put my trust into the producers’ hands, which is effectively how it works in the U.K. Yes, I am judging.”

Simon will also serve as an executive producer on the show, while helping in the selection of the judging panel. Nicole Scherzinger, Jessica Simpson, Paula Abdul, Rihanna, Cheryl Cole, Katy Perry and Will Smith are just some of the names that have been rumored as possible judges on the show.

So should we expect a nicer Simon on this new show? “I am gong to try and be consistent, as I have been over the years … People know what to expect if I’m on the judging panel. I don’t think things will change too much,” he said. We’ll take that as a no.

As for Simon’s thoughts or critique rather on the current and 10th season of American Idol, Simon reveals he is not an avid watcher. “I haven’t seen a full episode. I’ve seen three minutes of a recap. From what I’ve seen and from what I’ve heard, it all seems to be going well.”

According to Simon, he is hoping to make the announcement of the judges in three to four weeks. The winner of X Factor will also be awarded a $5 million record deal, in what is being called the largest guaranteed prize in TV history.

It seems Kim Kardashian continues to follow in the footsteps of her former BFF Paris Hilton. First came the sex tape, then the reality show, then the whole being insanely famous for nothing, and now an attempt to legitimize that fame by trying to sing.

According to TMZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been hitting the studio with top notch writer/producer/performer The-Dream.  And yes, this is the same Dream that is responsible for major hits such as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”

The important question now is can Kimmy sing? A “source” tells TMZ that “Kim’s got a really good voice.”

Above is a photo of Kim, 30, who according to her, hasn’t had any work done on her face other than botox.  Kim attended Heidi Klum’s 2010 Halloween party as Little Red Riding Hood.
