Simon Cowell: Paula Abdul Will Be On ‘Idol’

We want answers!

This weekend, it looked as though Paula Abdul would not be returning as a judge on American Idol due to failed contract negotiations.

However, fellow judge Simon Cowell urges Idol fans not to worry! He told Extra, “She’ll be fine. She’ll be on the show. I don’t get a lot of say. I’ve just made it clear that I want Paula on the show.”

Adding to the wishful thinking is host Ryan Seacrest‘s statement. He dished, “I think as far as I know, you’ll see everybody back. I hope so.”

Have your say in the comments section, Idol fans: Would you watch the show without Paula at the judges seat?
