Reality TV took a major hit when Paula Abdul left American Idol, but for anyone who is still suffering from Paula Abdul withdrawal, you can relax! She’s baaaaaaaaaaack! The queen of reality TV babbling/crying/weirdness is joining fellow former Idol judge Simon Cowell on this season of X Factor. And what a wild ride it will be!
Get more on Paula Abdul after the JUMP!
Everyone knows that American Idol was never the same after Ms. Abdul left the show. Yeah, the contestants are great, but when it comes to judging, Kara, Ellen and even J-Lo can’t match the level of
wackiness awesomeness that Paul Abdul brought to the dog and pony show. Luckily for us viewers, we have our Paula back for this season of X Factor, but it almost didn’t happen.
Simon Cowell explained that the delay came from the legal team:
The issue was that these conversations had gone on long enough. It’s not like I sprung this on somebody. I just thought it’s time for everyone to do their job and get the deal done. I couldn’t have sat in front of you lot and said (Paula) wanted to do the deal and we couldn’t. I could just sense that the public would’ve been disappointed without Paula. You see how we are; we get on really well.
Who knows what will unfold with Paula Abdul on board, but guess what, I can’t wait to find out! Besides, I kind of miss Simon every Wednesday and Thursday night when I watch American Idol, so do me proud X Factor!
