American Idol: Paula Abdul To Send Off Simon Cowell In The Season Finale

May 24, 2010 01:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


Season 9 of American Idol–and Simon Cowell‘s tenure as a judge–is coming to a close this week. Cowell will film his final episode of Idol on Wednesday and rumor has it, he’ll be sent off in style from former judge, Paula Abdul. Keep reading for more details on Abdul’s return to Idol this week…

The season finale of American Idol is almost here. On Wednesday night, the competition will come to an end when the winner of season 9 will be crowned. Will it be Lee Dewyze or Crystal Bowersox? Wednesday also marks the last episode to feature longtime judge, Simon Cowell. Cowell announced last year that he’ll be leaving American Idol after this season to focus on his new reality TV venture, X Factor, premiering on FOX in the fall of 2011.

How do you say goodbye to perhaps the biggest star on American Idol? Producers of the singing competition have something big planned, although they’re remaining mum on the details. PEOPLE magazine reports that the send-off for Simon Cowell will feature his close friend and former American Idol judge, Paula Abdul. Abdul served on the Idol judging panel alongside Cowell for eight seasons before being replaced this year by comedienne and daytime TV talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres.

No word yet on exactly what Paula Abdul‘s involvement will be on Wednesday’s season finale of American Idol, but it definitely has to do with Simon Cowell‘s goodbye. She’ll also reportedly be joined by former Idol contestants in remembering the acid-tongued judge. A performance by Christina Aguilera is also scheduled for the finale.
