Paula Abdul will not be returning to American Idol for the next season. She made the announcement on Twitter and it comes on the heels of last month's rumors that she wouldn't be returning. Abdul tweeted the following to let her entire fanbase know of the change:
"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 day1become 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."
On August 3rd, it was announced that bikini-clad Kara DioGuardi will be returning as an Idol judge...and now we learn, as Paula's full replacement.
What do you think of an Idol without Paula? Think Kara can carry the wacky torch?
