Paula Abdul Gives Back

by at . Comments

We mock Paula Abdul a lot on this site because, well, have you ever heard her American Idol critiques/rants?

But we have nothing but praise for the occasionally wacky judge for her - and many others' - actions as part of the Idol Gives Back special.

Here's a shot of Abdul hugging a child from tomorrow night's broadcast. Please remember to tune in, call in and help out with a donation:

you have no business going around mocking this sweet human being who has done nothing but good in her life. last year, she gave the Most money out of all the judges + ryan to Idol gives back, but didnt tell the media. so she didnt get any credit for it. but she obviously didnt want credit, she just wanted to help. are you still gonna mock her?
