Paula Abdul Won't Return American Idol

by at . Comments

American Idol just got a less less crazy... and entertaining.

Having failed to agree to a new contract with the show, Paula Abdul said goodbye to her fans last night on Twitter. She wrote:

"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.

"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."

Will you miss Paula as a judge?

Hmm.. For me it's better for Paula to leave.
I love Kara and Ellen better than her because they give better critiques to the contestants. I usually get confused with Paula's critique because she is just trying to be nice, but there isn't much she could say when someone performs bad. Comparing to Kara and Simon who usually give critique but also good suggestions. They definitely show that they have much better knowledge about music and the music industry. I was just happy that Paula leave and let Kara and Simon criticize more. Check out my tumblr http://elhaha1001.tumblr.com
