Paula Abdul was the “glue that held it together” in ‘Idol,’ says producer

HollywoodNews.com: On Monday night, March 8th, I ran into former “American Idol” producer Nigel Lythgoe at Soho House in Beverly Hills.
I asked Lythgoe about the “American Idol” hosts. He told me that he still thought Sir Elton John was the best choice to replace Simon Cowell.
“He’s absolutely it,” said Lythgoe, who also said he thought Ellen DeGeneres was still warming up and has yet to show her full potential. He obviously sensed then that she wasn’t a keeper.
And he missed Paula Abdul. “She was the glue that held it together, wasn’t she?” he said wistfully.
