Reunited, and it feels so good.

Paula Abdul is on board for former colleague Simon Cowell’s new talent reality show.

The 48-year-old singer and choreographer, whose recent CBS reality show Live to Dance died, will round out The X Factor table, along with British singer Cheryl Cole (from the UK version) and megaproducer L.A. Reid.

“We have the kind of chemistry that’s not easy to replace,’’ Cowell said of his pick. “We can argue and go at each other, and it’s not uncomfortable.’’

How does Paula feel about all this? “I’m thrilled, exhilarated — beyond exhilarated — and terrified,” she said.

Hosting duties for X go to model turned TV personality, Welshman Steve Jones.
