Paula Abdul Is Back In The Judge’s Seat


Paula Abdul is heading back to tv…along with dancer/singer/overall hottie Jason Derulo!

The duo have been confirmed as permanent judges for season 12 of FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance, the network announced this week. Abdul and Derulo are replacing longtime judge Mary Murphy and joining veteran panelist Nigel Lythgoe starting Jan. 24 for the NYC auditions.

“I’m honored to be joining the judges’ panel this season,” the former SYTYCD guest judge, 52, tweeted after news broke Jan. 22. Her SYTYCD gig marks the award-winning choreographer’s return to reality TV and to the FOX network, which she called home from 2002 to 2009 on American Idol, and The X Factor in 2011.

Derulo, 25, who has also served as a guest judge, performed on the series in the past and lent his music to many a SYTYCD routine, is just as excited to sit on the panel. “[SYTYCD] is one of the most respected and longest-tenured shows on network television, and I hope to be a part of new growth and continued success,” the “Wiggle” singer told Us Weekly in a statement.

‘The X Factor’ shake-up! Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones are OUT!

First rumors spread that ‘The X Factor’ host Steve Jones would soon be out of a job. Then the tweet came in, he wrote: “I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show.”

Back in December 2011, news of Jones’ demise was a little premature, and his reps shot down the rumors immediately. But they surfaced again at the Television Critics Association press tour earlier in January 2012, when Kevin Reilly, head of Fox Entertainment, said, “Whether Steve’s the guy or not, it comes under the heading of growth in general, so there will be some tweaks to the show.” Reilly then added, “Hosting, as we know, it is a much harder job than meets the eye. I think everybody now has come to realize the value of Ryan Seacrest.”

Earlier on Monday, Jones’ now-former boss Simon Cowell was quoted in London’s Daily Mirror saying: “I don’t think he did a bad job but, like ‘America’s Got Talent,’ there is a Brit limit on the show.” A few hours later, Jones’ tweet made it official.

And now E! is reporting that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul will not be returning as judges for the second season.

“She wants to focus on her music career,” their source said of Nicole. “She’s spoken to Simon [Cowell] and he’s given her his blessing … ‘X Factor’ took a lot more of her time than she ever expected. She didn’t have any time really to work on her music. She was doing ‘X Factor’ six days a week.”

Sources also confirmed to E! that judge Paula Abdul will also not be returning to “The X Factor,” leaving Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid as the only original members of the judging panel for Season 2. “She found out today,” a show source told E! Online.

Paula Abdul makes her minions call her “warrior”

You might think twice about accepting a job as Paula Abdul’s assistant after reading this story. According to sources, the 49-year-old X Factor judge has some crazy demands.

Each assistant must carry and use a tape recorder at all times “because she doesn’t trust her own conversations,” the source says.

“She also makes them check the TiVo for any mention of her and put it on a DVD.”

Abdul team members should also prepare to go through her email — and respond to family and friends as the star herself.

The “Forever Your Girl” singer also needed constant reminders that she is a “warrior, survivor and gift,” adds the insider.

This is so insane it’s funny. I really hope it is true. I like the thought of people running around behind her with a water bottle saying “Here you go, gift…you’re such a survivor, warrior.”
