AIXIV

The entire panel of judges – Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban – along with host Ryan Seacrest are aboard for American Idol XIV.

Doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen.

TELEVISION NEWS: Paula Abdul leaving Idol? I say No Way.

Paula Abdul

Say it isn’t so! Word going around the web today is that Paula Abdul isn’t returning to American Idol this season.  She is, rightfully so, a little ticked off that the Producers are screwing her over on contract negotiations.  If Ryan Seacrest can get a $45 million contract, certainly Paula should be getting at least $60 million. She’s more “vital” to the show than Seacrest. The Producers have opened a big can of worms by paying Seacrest that kind of money, because I’m sure Randy Jackson is looking around saying, “hey, what about a bone for the dog?”  While everyone is saying she’s not coming back, it’s just not going to happen, Paula’s coming back with a ridiculous contract and Simon Cowell‘s contract will be even more jaw dropping.  Auditions start in a month so we’ll probably know for sure by the end of next week what’s going on.
