Paula Abdul is Leaving American Idol
“With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to #IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all …being a part of a show that I helped from day1become an international phenomenon … What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me … It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month … I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all."
FOX, FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment had this to say: “Paula Abdul has been an important part of the American Idol family over the last eight seasons and we are saddened that she has decided not to return to the show. While Paula will not be continuing with us, she’s a tremendous talent and we wish her the best.”
I'm seriously questioning my desire to watch the show now. She was the only sense of 'heart' the show had. And the dynamic will be so 'off'. Imagine watching Seinfeld with a Jerry Seinfeld stand-in. Peace out, Paula. :(
