Simon Cowell has defended Paula Abdul's decision to join CBS reality show Got To Dance.

Speaking to Terri Seymour on Extra, Cowell also refused to rule out hiring the former American Idol judge for his upcoming US X Factor series.

He said: "I don't know. I sent Paula a note because I knew that this was likely to happen. I sent her a note just saying that I was actually pleased somebody's built a show around her, it just proves her star power.

"Paula's a survivor. She's much smarter than people know. But what I said, and I literally mean this, I would welcome her on any of my shows any time."
