Paula Abdul to return to “American Idol” for Simon’s farewell

HollywoodNews.com: Paula Abdul has just landed her new gig on “Got To Dance” as a judge, so what better way to prepare for it then to go back to your roots. After all, she was our favorite part of “American Idol” in the past and so we are very excited to hear that she is returning to the stage tonight. She is going to be celebrating Simon Cowell’s farewell from the show as he takes the judge’s table for the last time.

A source close to Paula told x17Online “Yes, Paula taped a segment on Monday, but she’ll definitely be live on the show, too. Simon is in for a special treat. As for what exactly she’s doing, producers haven’t nailed it down yet. Several ideas are floating around, like possibly a stage performance, but it may all change last minute.”

In addition they report that Paula is still in the running to be a judge on Simon Cowell’s new venture “The X Factor.” The source continued, “Simon has certainly not closed the door on this one. It’s no secret that he loves Paula and knows she’ll bring in the ratings. He still very much wants Paula to be a part of this new venture especially since it’ll be going up against American Idol. But he has time to make the final deal happen. The show is still a year away from premiering, so until Simon wraps up Idol and takes a little vacation, the final X Factor details won’t be announced for a while.”

Watch out, Paula’s back!
