Paula Abdul to Host New Star Search

Paula Abdul has landed a new gig! The ex American Idol judge has reportedly signed a deal to host the rebooted version of Star Search!

Sources tell Entertainment Weekly that Paula is close to finalizing the deal with ABC.

Abdul would play host and judge on the singing competition that searches for unsigned talent. Hmmm, remind you of another show on television?

Apparently the network has been trying to get Paula ever since she’s announced her departure from American Idol last summer.

This will be ABC’s third time trying to revive this 80s show. The first version starred Ed McMahon as host; the second was resurrected in 2003 with Arsenio Hall, but only lasted a year.

Will Paula be able to bring this oldie back on the air and keep it there? She definitely has a fan following, and people are ready to see her back on the small screen!
