it won't be the same without her, or at least the auditions won't, since that's about all that I watch (it's fun watching someones dreams get shattered).  and no more great moments like this.

I dont buy she is done. Sounds like they are just ratcheting up negotiations. Still 4 weeks before shooting. A lot of this stuff is just being played out in the media, thats all.

Oh did not realize that, but I thought the judges dont show until September? Anyway she can always come in late (nothing says she misses the beginning she cant show up), just posturing!

I'm definitely going to miss her inane banter and "you're so magical and beautiful and wonderful" babbling, plus the constant fighting with Simon.  Actually I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't just a marketing/bargaining ploy, with maybe Simon and Ryan bringing her back in at the last moment.

I'll admit to watching Idol and I dno't think she brings anything to the show. There is some uncomfortable amusement to be had at her apparent shortage of sanity, or excess of pharmaceuticals, but that won't be missed.

I don't watch the show, but even I know that this is the stupidest career move she could possibly make - there are so many struggling ex-divas out there to be had cheap.

too bad Michale Jackson passed away or they could use him.  we could watch his face collapse inwards week after week, and then, in the grand finale, if could finally totally implode, sucking in everyone in the area.


anyways, maybe Rosie O'Donnell is free.

A friend of mine had a great suggestion for a replacement....  BRITNEY SPEARS!!!  She's like a younger version of Paula in all ways, but with greater popularity, more hits and even more baggage.  She would be awesome and she and Simon could have a season long bet - loser has to shave their head for the finale.  It's ratings gold, pure and simple.

We'll just wind up with American Idol still running as well as one of Simon's other "talent" shows, probably X Factor.  I hate all this crap.  If you don't have a giant hook on your talent show thing, forget it, I'm not watching.

Simon has been flying all of the world to record two shows I can imagine that it's not easy to juggle two shows. I'd pick whichever was closest to home too.

Probably best to retire American Idol. I can't really see it surviving without him. They were jumping the shark with Ellen, and continuing on without him will be swimming with them. Afterall, when Simon started X-Factor, Pop Idol ceased. Canadian Idol ended about two years ago. They knew when to end it.

Reports I read today say that Fox will be getting X Factor, and that Simon may be courting Paula as a judge. If so, it would mean American Idol basically just gets replaced by X Factor and the universe continues to function.
