Picture day for 'The X Factor' cast

The crew of "The X Factor" recently got dolled up for a few promo shots, and the results are causing headlines.

The Daily Mail, for example, noted that Paula Abdul "still has the X Factor" as she "shows off her slender figure in a series of stunning photographs," while Idolator presumed that 49-year-old Abdul is continuing to "age in reverse."

Host Steve Jones and judges Antonio L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell cleaned up rather nicely as well.

What do you think of the promo photos? "The X Factor" debuts on Fox on September 21.

    Paula looks amazing, and like Anderson Cooper said, I love me some Paula Abdul. She is NEVER boring, and I can't wait to watch her and Simon on X-Factor.

    Without my glasses on, I thought this was an old promo for American Idol.

    It is really hard for me to believe that because some celebrities are making a disgusting amount of money for doing another show and they had their pictures taken it is news worthy.

    Sorry Paula, but your photograph was photoshopped way, way too much. We know you're slender, but not that slender.
