As it turns out, not everyone got the boot from The X Factor.

Music industry vet L.A. Reid survived the reality show's shake-up, signing on for season two of the Fox show, E! News has confirmed. 

The Epic Records chairman reportedly signed the contract Friday, according to the Hollywood Reporter , just days after host Steve Jones and judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger got the boot.

There's still no word on who will join Reid at the judges' table, or who will replace Jones just yet, however (albeit a couple of unconfirmed rumors about Beyoncé and Mariah Carey joining the X Factor ranks).

So, tell us…who would you like to see join Reid at the judges' table when the singing competition show returns this fall?
