American Idol 2010: Paula Abdul Quitting Idol – Confirmed

Last season Paula Abdul predicted that having a 4th judge would be a problem for American Idol. Well, American Idol 2010 won’t have to worry about that issue because Abdul just confirmed that she will NOT be returning to Idol!

Small Screen Scoop compiled Paula Abdul’s Twitter messages:

With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day 1 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. It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month. I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all.

Could this just be a public move to finally get the huge paycheck she wants and, honestly, deserves? I hope Paula comes back as the show just won’t be the same without her. Let’s see how this plays out.

What do you think? Will you watch without Paula Abdul as a judge on American Idol 2010 or would you be done with the show? Share your thoughts!
