The show will be strange without Paula, and I can't see Ellen really working with this show, but I'll still watch. I've been to several of the finale shows, including the last two, so I'm sure I'll be following along as usual to the very end.
Indeed, it will be strange w/o Paula and I hope Ellen does well but... we'll see I guess LOL
Otherwise I am soooo psyched!!!!!
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things... sigpic
Paula was the only judge on idol that has become a performing entertainment legend. Although I enjoy watching Idol, there are many avenues to success besides talent shows. The historical thing about the televised talent shows in general is that one never really knows where the scripting ends and the real contest begins.
Paula Abdul has been criticized by industry critics as a judge that rarely says anything compelling, and as one that dribbles on unpredictably yet uses the same old schtick. Truth is, she is multitalented all the way around. From what 've seen, "real" people on high profile judges panels are rare indeed. I'm glad that she was there all that time.. adding sweetness and encouragement into the lives of one contestant after another... win, lose or draw. She never stepped on any other person's dreams.
Now, the good news is that the icon (in the earned and truest sense) has confirmed a new album and tour in the works! Perhaps her comeback will be sometime this year or next. You just go, Paula! We love you. :thumbup:
