American Idol is always in the news! Jennifer Hudson’s tragedy, Paula Abdul angry over Simon Cowell’s paycheck, Paula Abdul fan found dead near the judge’s home, and now Paula Abdul rumors that she’s leaving the show… Okay, maybe it’s more Paula Abdul news than American Idol. But American Idol sure knows how to keep their show in the spotlight. First, we have a new American Idol judge. Her name is Kara DioGuardi and I for one hate the idea of having 4 judges. Nigel Lythgoe voiced his opinion that this is not a good move. 3 American Idol judges laughing at a poor audition is enough. Then there were rumors that Paula Abdul was leaving American Idol to pursue some TV venture. Afterward Paula Abdul’s reps spoke up and said Paula isn’t going anywhere. I guess we will have to wait and see when American Idol returns on January 13th and 14th. They’re kicking House to Monday night, but keeping Fringe on Tuesday following American Idol; not sure I like that move, either.
