There has been speculation for the past few months on whether Paula Abdul would return to American Idol. But Abdul confirmed that her days on American Idol are finished.
“With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to Idol,” Abdul, 47, writes on her Twitter page. “I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day one become an international phenomenon.”
She adds: “What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me. I do, without any doubt, have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all.”
Paula Abdul did not give a reason for quitting American Idol, just two days before she was to return to work. Abdul’s rep would not comment, but just confirmed she was leaving.
“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,” FOX TV says in a statement. “While Paula will not be continuing with us, she’s a tremendous talent and we wish her the best.”
Just recently, Paula’s manager angrily said there was no contract on the table and that “sadly” it didn’t appear Abdul would be returning.
This brings it back to three judges with Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson joined by Kara DioGuardi.
