Paula Abdul to Face Off With Simon One Last Time

Paula Abdul will be hitting the American Idol stage one more time! The former judge will be a part of tonight’s finale in which either Lee DeWyze or Crystal Bowersox will be crowned the new winner.

Paula Abdul Ready to Bring Crazy Back

According to, Paula pretaped a segment for tonight’s show on Monday.

A source says, "Yes, Paula taped a segment on Monday, but she'll definitely be live on the show, too. Simon is in for a special treat. As for what exactly she's doing, producers haven't nailed it down yet. Several ideas are floating around, like possibly a stage performance, but it may all change last minute."

Interesting! We always loved Paula and Simon’s banter on Idol, so we’re sure the producers have something fun up their sleeves!

Report: Paula Abdul to Host New Dance Competition

As for Paula and Simon working together on a future project, insiders say there’s still a possibility of Abdul being a judge on X Factor.

"Simon has certainly not closed the door on this one,” says the source.

“It's no secret that he loves Paula and knows she'll bring in the ratings. He still very much wants Paula to be a part of this new venture especially since it'll be going up against American Idol. But he has time to make the final deal happen. The show is still a year away from premiering, so until Simon wraps up Idol and takes a little vacation, the final X Factor details won't be announced for a while."

We love it! Paula is a little cuckoo, but she’s great for ratings! Speaking of tonight’s finale, who do think will win? Vote below!
