Fans of American Idol were shocked by the news that contestant favorite Paula Abdul wouldn’t be returning to the FOX singing competition for the tenth season. Abdul was replaced on the judging panel by comedienne and daytime talk show host, Ellen Degeneres. Rumors have been circulating for months that fellow American Idol judge, Simon Cowell, has tapped Paula Abdul to be a judge on his upcoming reality TV show, The X Factor.

When asked to give a hint about her upcoming projects, Paula Abdul said, ”Drop a clue? Oh, I’m gonna be going back to my roots and doing a TV show that has something to do with my roots. I’m going back to doing some teaching on television in that kind of capacity.”

When asked directly if the TV show in question was The X Factor, the former American Idol star remained vague. “Oh boy… I knew that I would not be able to say certain things,” Abdul told the radio DJs. “I want to be able to say everything right now, but I can’t.” Cowell continues to tease about whether or not Abdul will be a part of his new reality TV venture saying only, “You’ll have to wait and see.”

As for the new season of American Idol, Abdul has nothing but positive things to say. “I will forever be a fan of the show,” she said. “I love [when] they get to the point of breaking new talent.”
