Paula Abdul Says She's Leaving American Idol On Twitter

Paula Abdul Confirms That She's Leaving American Idol

We've been hearing rumblings about Paula Abdul leaving American Idol for a few weeks now, but things just got a lot more interesting. Tonight she took to her verified Twitter account to tell the world that she's made the decision not to return to the show. In a string of tweets, she said:

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

FOX has confirmed that Paula will be leaving the show, stating, "Paula Abdul has been an important part of the American Idol family over the last eight seasons and we are saddened that she has decided not to return to the show. While Paula will not be continuing with us, she's a tremendous talent and we wish her the best." Most of you prefer Paula over Kara, so how do you feel about the reality of an American Idol judges' table without Paula's wacky antics? Will you still tune in next season?

I know it won't be the same but on the brighter side we won't have to get frustrated with her never shutting up and the fact that we never understood what she was saying. I think secretly Simon is very happy about this!

I agree with mallorycurtis; Idol just won't be the same without Paula.

I will watch by the way of dvr so I don't need to listen to the judges (specifically Kara) talk.
