April 16, 2010 01:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


American Idol just isn’t the same without Paula Abdul. With ratings dropping and Simon Cowell‘s impending departure, rumors are beginning to circulate that Idol producers might be trying to woo Abdul back to the FOX singing competition. Could a return to American Idol be the next career for Paula Abdul? Keep reading to find out…

Despite her wacky behavior and nonsensical critiques, fans were disappointed to see longtime judge, Paula Abdul, depart from American Idol last season. It seems now that producers for the FOX singing competition may be realizing the error of their ways by letting the star go. While still a strong show, American Idol ratings have dropped considerably this season and producers fear that when Simon Cowell leaves the show next year, it won’t be able to survive. Because of this, Idol execs are reportedly trying to woo Paula Abdul back to the reality competition.

According to InTouch Weekly, an American Idol insider says, “They want Paula back. They’re not sure if she’d be the fifth judge, but they are talking to her. People tuned in to see Paula’s wacky antics and her chemistry with Simon. The show is just not as much fun to watch without her.”

According to her publicist, this is all news to Abdul. “Paula has not been asked [to come back to 'Idol'],” Abdul’s publicist, Jeff Ballard, said. ”She was completely unaware of that rumor and laughed when she heard about it.”

Most people believe that Paula Abdul‘s next career move will be to join Simon Cowell‘s new reality venture, The X Factor. Although neither Abdul nor Cowell have confirmed it, both stars have made it clear that they’d love to work together again. For now, we’ll all have to stay tuned to see where Paula Abdul pops up next.
