Even though she won’t be on this season of American Idol, PaulaÂ Abdul still says that she’ll make time to watch the Fox reality show. What does the former idol judge have to say to newcomers Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler?
Despite being busy taping her own reality show, Live to Dance, former American Idol judge, Paula Abdul, says that she “absolutely will” be tuning in to see the new season of Idol, which will feature two new judges on the panel–Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.
“I hope they’re experiencing great talent and having a good time,” says Abdul of her replacements.
Abdul is admittedly a fan of the show and harbors no hard feelings since leaving in 2009. “I watched the last season objectively as a fan,” says Abdul. “Look, I was part of that family for nine years of my life. With Jennifer and Steven coming in, they’re seasoned veterans. Randy [Jackson']s at the helm, and Ryan [Seacrest]‘s still there.”
Abdul recently tweeted about her amazement in the level of talent she’s seen in cities like Los Angeles telling fans, “No words can describe this day or this night–the wealth of talent in Los Angeles is astounding. Deliberations are gonna be tough… Thank you to all the people who came out to support Live to Dance today & tonight! saw so many dancers! so many styles! REALLY impressive :)”
The dance competition show will be a far cry from American Idol, with no judges to critique the contestants. Instead, experts like Michael Jackson’s choreographer, Travis Payne, and former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt will be on hand to guide the dance hopefuls.
The new season of American Idol also premieres in January 2011 and will air on Fox.
