It’s going amazingly well. I’m having a great time. I’m really enjoying the contestants. I’m really enjoying the judges. I’m really enjoying the time I spent with Simon Cowell, learning a lot, having a great time and it’s everything I hoped that it would be. I have a very different taste than Simon, so I may have made some very different choices, but Simon is incredible and the most experienced guy at doing what we’re doing here with THE X FACTOR and with talent competition on television. So, I’m actually here to learn and watch and see exactly what Simon does. _L.A. Reid: The X Factor Judge
