Paula Abdul’s “American Idol “ contract may have expired last season, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be leaving the singing competition any time soon.
“I’ve been invited to stay the duration of the show, however long it lasts,” Abdul told the Associated Press. She continued by saying the invitation to come back on the show is subject to agreement.
As usual, it seems like one guy knew the chances of Abdul returning to “Idol” were great. Back in May, Simon Cowell told Ellen Degeneres, “Everyone’s going to be back. Absolutely.”
However, he didn’t seem too happy that adding a fourth judge would give him less time to speak. “One week, literally, we couldn’t talk, so 10 minutes before the show started, they said, ‘Oh, by the way, you can’t talk for half the show. It’s rather like saying in a singing competition to the singers, ‘Half of you can’t sing.’ It was just crazy.”
