Might Paula Abdul Return to American Idol?

by at . Comments

American Idol got a much-needed shot of adrenaline and entertainment this week, when Adam Lambert returned to the stage that made him famous.

But ratings for season nine have plummeted, along with its enterainment value and overall talent level (no offense, Crystal Bowersox).

Especially because it will be competing with Simon Cowell's The X Factor next year, the series needs to do something, it needs some kind of savior, it needs... Paula Abdul?

Sources tell the latest issue of In Touch Weekly that "it's a huge secret, but American Idol producers might be trying to woo Paula Abdul back to the struggling show."

Compared to when Paula was on the panel, viewership has fallen by approximately six million this season. That may have a lot to do with a lackluster set of finalists, of course, most of whom are the same type of singer.

But with Simon departing, “they want Paula back,” an insider tells the tabloid. “They’re not sure if she’d be the fifth judge, but they are talking to her. People tuned in to see Paula’s wacky antics and her chemistry with Simon. The show is just not as much fun to watch without her.”

Do you agree? Do you wanna see Abdul return to Idol?
