    Well, Just heard that Paula will not be returning to Idol. As Goofy as she is I would much rather have her over Kara. Always liked Paula even with all her babbling. The Chemistry was great between the original three. I felt Kara never fit in.

    ^^ Agreed.

    I don't think AI will ever be the same without her..

    I think this is the beginning of the end. Simon has made it VERY clear he does not want to do idol without Paula, I doubt he will be resigning with Idol after his contract ends this season. Sadly...I mean honestly I think Id handle this news better if Kara wasnt still in the picture...I cant stand Kara. We should start a "Ditch Kara, Save Paula" campaign!

    Well, there have only been three posts, but I have a feeling I'll definitely be in the minority. I am so happy Paula Abdul is leaving the show! Hopefully that means I won't have to listen to any more pointless critiques that really don't even talk about the actual singing.

    Good. Now I won't have to listen to her be too nice, interrupt Simon, or see any of her new music videos. As long as Simon's there, I don't care who else judges.

    I really love the chemistry Paula and Simon have. Kara doesn't even come close, she annoys me to no end. I'd rather she leave than Paula

    Well I might not watch this season now. To ditch Paula and keep Kara is just wow. I can't stand Kara.

    I totally agree with both of you. Couldnt have said it better myself. Im extremely excited about this. Im just kinda weird about Victoria Beckham joining the group though...it just seems out of place.

    I think that Pala was a very important part of Amarican Idol. Bringing Kara onto Idol last season was a mistake. Her personality did not fit on the panel. Paula has been there since the begining and even if you feel you have had problems with her, she has a very wide fan base and I think you have made a very big mistake. I have watched Idol faithfully and taped it and DVR'd it when I missed the live show. I can say that I will not watch the show without Paula bucause I like her that much and dislike like Kara that much. You have really made a terrible mistake! I feel like you have really let the fans of the show down,

    This sucks, really bad. She was an awesom judge. The show just won't be the same. And this means Simon wil probably go too. And if he leaves, things will never be the same on the show.

    It certainly is surprising news, but I had already decided before the announcement that I wouldn't be watching anymore. Had that not been the case, this announcement wouldn't have likely changed anything for me-- I never did care for Paula.

    alot of people did not like abdul over the last seasons and the producers knew this as well. It was predicted already during the last 2 seasons she would be replaced. With the coming of Kara it was already obvious what was gonna happen. Even though she made her less popular than Abdul , all starts are hard and it's not easy to replace an 8 season face. She was bad but not terrible. Rating were going down so Idol needed some changes

    I was REALLY really upset when I first found out about Paula, but honestly Im accepting it more. And besides Simon has always been the judge that matters the most to me. I think the show will be okay tho. I still cant stand Kara and I will miss Paula, but Im not going to let Paula leaving ruin the show for me!
