Ryan Seacrest nailed down his $45 million deal to continue hosting American Idol for the next three years, but the question remains as to who of the four judges will be back next season. The word is that Paula Abdul is not happy with her contract negotiations and may not return. This makes me really sad.
Say what you will about Paula, but you’ve got to admit that she brings unpredictable excitement to the show. I, for one, think it would be a big loss for the Idol franchise were she not to come back to the judge’s desk.
If Paula moves on and the other three return, who would be your favorite judge: Simon Cowell, Kara DioGuardi or Randy Jackson? Voice your choice in today’s featured poll. And as far as Paula’s Idol negotiations are concerned, they better figure it out before the auditions start next month. “How about some information, please?”
