Not really the biggest fan of Paula, but I do think she added something to the show. I liked how her and Simon went at it. The new judge is too much like a female Simon ... Not sure how the dynamics will work, but it should be interesting to see. Hopefully the producers won't let Kara write any more songs for the show.
I hated the grade school antics between her and Simon. Some may hate Simon for his brutal honesty, but at least he can put a coherent sentence together! And Cara (Kara?) can be honest and nurturing at the same time. I like her. Bu-bye Paula!
TV CHIEFS want Victoria Beckham to replace Paula Abdul on American Idol.
Billionaire show producer Simon Fuller, who managed the Spice Girls, is in talks to hire Posh, 35, as a judge.
It comes after Paula, 47, yesterday revealed on her Twitter web page that she was quitting America's biggest show - despite auditions starting today.
A source said: "Paula's absence leaves a big gap on the judging panel. At least 25 million viewers tune in every week.
"It needs a big star. Simon Cowell and Victoria have always got on. It would be an incredible coup to get Posh. She was in one of the biggest girl groups in history so she knows what she is talking about. Simon Fuller is now speaking to her."
Paula's exit leaves Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Simon Cowell on the panel.
Paula said: "I'll miss being a part of a show that I helped become an international phenomenon."
