She's forever our girl.

Will I miss Paula Abdul if she's leaves American Idol? That was the question posed to me on the cover of my Entertainment Weekly, a magazine I never subscribed to or paid for, but continue to get. Why? Don't know.

Heck, yeah, I'll miss her.

I must say, she has been quite entertaining in her years on Idol.

Exhibit A:

Granted, the majority of the time, I can't understand a single thing she is trying to say and wonder if she can actually form a complete sentence, but that's part of her appeal. When the camera pans to her, and it's her turn to speak, I nervously watch and root for her to give some sort of insightful comment. When she makes it through her statement and I have comprehended everything she's said, I am relieved.

The relationship she has with Simon also adds a spark to the show. Who doesn't enjoy a little name-calling and eye-rolling among friends?

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:
(Sorry, no appropriate video. Just imagine her fancy footwork.)

What we do without her choreographic skills, which come into play quite a bit on the show, even though this isn't So You Think You Can Dance? Those poor contestants are forced to do awkward side steps and maybe a stiff turn or two. Just let them sing, please.

Additionally, the show would not be the same without some shameless plug for her new song or album. I must say, Paula has still got it in the dance department.

So, please, Idol, don't let Paula go. I don't think Kara can offer us the same caliber of entertainment (although I do agree with almost everything she says).

Ugh, I do NOT like Kara. Keep Paula! Keep Paula!

I totally agree...We definitely will miss her if she leaves. Eric and I are not Kara fans AT ALL and things will not be the same without Paula.

That first video is BRU-TAL. It's almost painful to watch -- but you are right, classic Paula -- and the show just wouldn't be the same without her!

She must stay on the show, but I cannot watch those videos. The first 15 seconds make my brain hurt. :-)

I am anti-Kara, pro-Paula. Just fyi. Lol!

Katie said...

Painful to watch, but hilarious, down right, hilarious. Oh my word :) Sometimes I probably resemble the same babblings with seemingly no point :)

That said, if she leaves, it'll be the beginning of the end for AI. That's right, I said it. I like Kara, but she does not have the star/staying power that Paula has.

I am also a Paula fan...
