Paula Abdul discusses her new show, the 'American Idol' judges, and whether she'll reunite with Simon on 'The X-Factor'

Paula-AbdulImage Credit: Tina Gill/PR PhotosFormer American Idol judge Paula Abdul was recently in NYC promoting her new dance competition show, Live to Dance, which will premiere on CBS this January. And — as luck would have it! — we got the chance to catch up with the “Straight Up” songstress. Abdul, of course, wanted to mostly keep the focus on the hundreds of sets of twinkle toes that were there to audition for the talent competition, but we managed to sneak in a few questions about American Idol and the upcoming X-Factor. Click on the video below to hear her thoughts on her new CBS dance show, as well as what she has to say about American Idol‘s new judging panel, if the show (without Simon!) can still be successful going forward, and whether she might reunite with Cowell on X-Factor‘s judging panel next fall.

She’s a bit cagey, no? But, did you glean anything from Ms. Paula’s thoughts on Live to Dance, American Idol, and X-Factor?

    3 hrs of x-factor next fall. FOX is stupid…oh I long for the days eons ago and shows like X-FILES. If FOX takes my FRINGE away next fall, I’ll be leaving FOX too.

    All 3 hours probably won’t be on separate nights, I imagine X-Factor will have a 2-hour night then an hour night, just like DWTS/AI. So…instead of Hell’s Kitchen for 2 hours on wednesday I can see X-Factor taking an hour on that night…then idk about the 2 hour block.

    Losing Paula killed Idol; X-factor would be lucky to have her.

  • COCO

    I wish people would stop asking her about X-factor. Damm. She’s doing her OWN SHOW and people won’t STFU about Simon’s.

  • robert

    would be a welcomed addition on Australian idol

  • Mary

    Oh Paula, go back to sleep!! The EYES don’t lie….

    • gg

      If you aren’t a part of her life the stop the judging!

  • Suzie

    I’m hoping that Paula does join the X Factor that would be like seeing the original American Idol again :)
