American Idol: What’s Next For Paula Abdul?

March 26, 2010 01:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


What is going on with former American Idol judge Paula Abdul? Ever since she announced last year that she wouldn’t be returning as a judge on the FOX singing competition, rumors have been flying about her next TV gig. Dancing with the Stars? Star Search? The X Factor? A new report suggests Abdul might be signing a deal with NBC to work with Kenny Ortega on a reality dance competition…

Paula Abdul has hinted that she would definitely be returning to TV sometime soon for a new project. In February, she said, ”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.” It seemed that maybe the truth had finally come out when reports surfaced of her working on a deal with ABC for a reboot of Star Search. That deal allegedly fell through in the final moments, and now it looks like she might be heading to a different network altogether.

Reports are circulating that former American Idol judge Paula Abdul is in talks with NBC to work with choreographer Kenny Ortega on a new dance competition. Ortega is the choreographer for High School Musical 3 and Michael Jackson’s This Is It. The show is allegedly being produced by 3 Ball Productions (the company behind The Biggest Loser) and follows dance teams as they stage major choreographed productions, possibly in public places. A source for the show says, “This is enormous dance performance, far beyond what you’d expect to be able to do on television.”

Development for the show has been in the works for months now, but rumors about Paula Abdul‘s involvement have only recently surfaced. Naturally, the former American Idol judge has yet to confirm anything and until the ink has dried on the deal, we’re not holding our breath.
