The returning judges call for hopefuls to audition for the 11th series of the ITV talent show, which returns in the summer.
Cowell describes Cole as "trouble" in the promo, while he also says that he wants to find a "huge star" this year.
Cole adds that the show "changed her life" and that it "could change yours too".
Cole was confirmed to be returning to The X Factor earlier this week, after three years away from the panel.
She later joked that she finally gave in to Simon Cowell's "begging" and agreed to return because "it's not nice to see a grown man cry".
Cowell and Cole left the X Factor together in 2010 to judge the first season of its now-cancelled Us version, but soon fell out after she was axed just weeks later. »
Horrid news, and it goes without saying that none of us would wish to be at the sharp end of the offensive. But if The X Factor is at war, I do think we've reached the point in time where we have to question whether the west really has to get involved in the conflict. Let's be dispassionate for a minute: do the lessons of recent history indicate we actually make these things better? What would making it our business honestly achieve? And is doing nothing really the post-imperial humiliation some imagine it to be?
Of course, these are not questions to concern war correspondents »

Wednesday (March 12) night's "American Idol" is officially called something like Soundtrack To Our Lives, which is what we're calling this year's permutation on the always-confusing Music From The Movies theme, in which singers go through contortions to justify performances from songs which, indeed, may have once popped up in a movie at some point. Several of the songs teased by "Idol" for tonight actually *do* seem to hail meaningfully from movies. I can't quibble with "Skyfall" or "Falling Slowly" or "Sound of Silence." The idea that "Sweet Home Alabama" fits the theme is a complete cheat but... That's how this goes! Click through and follow along! 8:01 p.m. I'm pretty sure that "Ocean's Eleven"-themed opening was produced by somebody who never watched either version of "Ocean." 8:02 p.m. More close-ups of the audience, please! I want to see all of the people who will be clapping off-the-beat tonight. »

The new series will run for 15 episodes and begins on March 28 at 10pm.
Gervais will be joined by two other stars of the movie - Kermit the Frog and his nemesis Constantine.
Gervais recently spoke to Digital Spy about the choreography of Muppets Most Wanted, saying: "I am doing a song-and-dance number. It's a big Hollywood song and dance, me and the frog.
"There's tap dancing and up-and-down stairs. I'm a pretty good singer - I rate myself at singing. Dancing? I'm your dad at a party. »
The 'frenemies' agreed at their first public reunion since Cole confirmed her return to the panel on Monday (March 10) that they felt like the ITV show was "starting again".
"There's only so much begging one can take," Cole joked to Daybreak. "It's not nice to see a grown man cry, so I finally succumbed."
Looking back at their final series together in 2010, Cowell continued: "I have great memories of that [year]. We had so much fun and I think it feels like we're starting again coming back."
If 2014 is going to be the year of the comeback on the ITV talent show, here are 6 more things that could potentially return to your autumn Saturday night TV schedule.
Dumped by Cheryl for Katie 'sod it' Waissel in 2010, Gamu Nhengu's exit was, and always will be, a sore point for X Factor diehards. After being set up as a potential champion with her 'Walking on Sunshine' audition in the first show, there was a national outcry (well, we moaned about it a bit anyway) when she was axed. Gamu-gate and the hastag #bringbackGamu were born and we won't let them die until she gets a second chance.

It's happening. Cheryl Cole confirmed on Instagram last night that she'll be back on The X Factor this year - scooping all those tabloid exclusives, the cheeky minx - and it's fair to say the news has been divisive. While some can't wait to see the gorgeous Geordie back on their screens, others wish they never had to see her face again. Well, here in the Digital Spy office we're just as split on the issue: is it terrible or terrific? Read on as two of us battle it out - then let us know what you think...
For: "Cheryl has snark, sweetness and Simon skills" - Catriona Wightman, Entertainment Editor
Cheryl, Cheryl, Cheryl. Whatever you think of her, there's no other X Factor judge - Simon Cowell excepted, perhaps - who generates quite so much buzz. I think we can all agree that no-one's really cared about the last »
Producers, casting directors and executives share the secrets of how they find the right personalities for reality TV shows
It's a rarely discussed fact of reality television: before every Kardashian, Honey Boo Boo or Robertson, there was a casting director who thought they might be the perfect wacky character for TV. At the recent RealScreen Summit reality TV conference in Washington, a panel of casting experts, producers and network executives discussed what goes on behind the scenes of the casting world, a topic that doesn't usually get much attention. Turns out, it's not an easy gig.
Sheila Conlin, who owns casting and production office The Conlin Company, talked about one difficult couple she found for Fox's Kitchen Nightmares. "They were stubborn and a lot to handle, which for me, is a dream," she gushed. Translation: when someone's that difficult off screen, it's likely they'll be crazy on screen. That means buzz, »

Ajobe - who was unable to take part in the Judges' Houses stage of the competition because of visa issues - will not perform in any of the future X Factor dates, leaving Sterling Ramsay and Joey James to continue as a duo.
Reports have suggested that Ajobe was forced out of the tour after a heated argument backstage.
"The remaining Rough Copy members Sterling and Joey will continue to perform on the tour as a duo."
Ray's sweet style
Young Raymond later poses with his gong backstage. And his suit reminds us a bit of Tom Hanks in Big.
A moment like this
Dancing on Ice finished its eight-year run last night with a three-way skate-off, constant recapping, a shameless number of perfect scores – and Bolero on a loop
Dancing on Ice came to an end last night, much in the same way as it started back in 2006. As always, there were celebrities attempting to be graceful despite having gigantic razorblades strapped to their feet. There were judges, one of whom was notable for his astonishing level of self-hatred. And, of course, there was Phillip Schofield dressed up as the Judderman.
Sure, we've seen some changes over the years – faceless judge replacing faceless judge, and Christine Bleakley's intimidating froideur replacing Holly Willoughby's mumsy loveliness – but for the most part the key elements remained in place. Dancing. Ice. Torvill and Dean trying to raise a smile after hearing Bolero for the trillionth time. The sense that this was all a lot more »
