Paula Abdul "Upstages" Cheryl Cole On Red Carpet
As The X Factor USA gang are pictured together for the first time...
Abdul opted to wear a low-cut red gown showing off her cleavage, while 27-year old Cole played in safe by wearing an orange high-necked dress - a far cry Cannes Film Festival last Friday.
Despite ogling Abdul, SiCo has praised Cheryl, telling The Mirror that America is "warming" to the Geordie star.
Cowell revealed: "Most British people that come over to these shows seem to be mean or rude. But Cheryl, she’s not like that. The audience really warmed to her.”
Girls Aloud star Cheryl was later seen leaving the bash wearing an oversized blazer… we wonder whether it belonged to rumoured new boyfriend, Steve Jones?
